Wonderful small museum packed with arts and crafts from Mexico. Big variety of various crafts which we need to continue to support before they become lost traditions....Oaxaca is heavily represented with works from sculptors Don Jose Garcia and Manuel Reyes. Incredible alebrijes from Jacopo and Maria de Los Angeles. The gift is over priced, over crowded, the sales staff specializes... More

Loved this museum. Such great artwork including the day of the dead type things, carved animals and the like. Great gift shop and the building is really pretty as well. Takes an hour is so to walk through. The museum gift store is a lovely find - look for very artistic carved animals, masks and day of the dead work.... More

Absolutely love this museum. Not only are the exhibits wonderful, but so are the staff. The displays shed light on what is behind many of the crafts available in Mexico today. The gift store is a favorite shop of mine in Mexico City.

A trip to the Museo de Arte Popular should not be missed if you love folk art from Mexico. The collection is absolutely stunning. There is also an excellent store on site as well. I would come back to visit this museum over and over again. It was wonderful!

Packed with beautiful handicrafts still very contemporary throughout Mexico. A great alternative to the classical and fine arts attractions around the city. Great gift shop, although a little pricey.

This is a small museum which can be seen in 2-3 hours. It exhibits artisanal work from Mexican Artisans since the beginnings. I loved the beautiful kites hanging from the ceiling and the Dia de Los Muertos exhibits were just unique and beautiful...It is one of those museums in Mexico City you cannot miss!!! I highly recommend it! It's right... More

This museum is in a great location and I love the layout. Very accessible for people who have no background in the history and types of art featured here. Marvel at the creations of craftsmen from throughout Mexico. Small entrance fee and fantastic gift shop (which features many small, and easily packed for air travel, items).

A variety of Mexican arts and crafts of the more contemporary type. A rather fun gallery to wander through if you have the time.

A nice place to see some modern art and maybe some air conditioning while in the park, but there are better museums.

Beautiful collection and display of the many handicrafts Mexico has to offer. They are more expensive than in local markets. If you really want to find a good value in handicrafts and life experience to go with it, explore the different regions of Mexico and buy them at the source!
