You will find in one place all handicraft from around Mexico. you will find some marvelous pieces but also things that can buy on the maket. The store is super expensive. Take some time to go to a fonart store, or the cuidadela (a 10 min walk from there)

On my most recent trip I only visited the shop to check out the folk art on display. This, though, was the first time I have not set aside a few hours to visit this most wonderful of museums. My day began with a walk from the center of town via Madero, with a stop for churros and hot chocolate... More

Second only to the Anthropology Museum in my opinion. This museum tackles the wonderful and colourful culture of Mexico in such an informative and interesting way. The room dedicated to the Day of the Dead festival is just superb. Although quite a new museum it is absolutely wonderful to visit. Mexico is such a rich and beautiful culture so to... More

This modern museum is amazing. It features exhibits of Mexican arts and crafts including a room of Day of The Dead figures that is not to be missed. There is also an extensive display of alibrijes, trees of life and kites. This place is a must see for lovers of handmade Mexican crafts.

This museum is a must when visiting the city. It's a very complete and beautiful collection of traditional Mexican crafts. There are permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as seasonal workshops and a very nice shop.

The museum is small (but under construction) but very sweet, and perfect if you have time constraints and just want to get a quick taste of Mexican art and culture. There was a nice sampling of sculptures, pottery and costumes from all over the country. Entry fee was only 40 pesos (less than $3.00). If you are looking to purchase... More

This museum is modern, air-conditioned, and filled with light. You'll see folk art from all areas of Mexico. My favorite was the Day of the Dead display which included a football stadium filled with skeletal soccer fans and players. I also liked the mermaids (las sirenas). World-class museum with an excellent gift shop.

A fabulous must see place in the city. Four floors of beautiful folk art accessible by lifts and air conditioned. A highlight of my two weeks in the city.

It was a pretty nice museum highlighting the modern art of Mexico although the entrance fee was a bit expensive for my taste. The museum has a nice library and coffee shop though. It's clearly for students and art enthusiasts the like. Recommended for those lovers of modern and abstract art
