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!

This exhibit focuses on the craft arts, which is arguably as important as "fine arts" . The display is well curated, but missing some dates, which could be useful. The building is of a good scale to spend an hour or two wandering around. If you are after gifts to take home, the museum shop has a good variety of... More

Just had time for a quick visit but free for students and well laid out. Worth a visit just to see the extraordinary Las Dos Fridas painting here - the staff so relaxed..you're allowed to get quite close and take photos without flash - can't imagine being allowed to do this anywhere else! Great little cafe on site too and... More
