Fantastic Arte!

Loved this museum, very reasonably priced at 40 pesos each. A great look at Mexican art throughout history, and in comparison to modern day. Definitely recommend!

We went because we were exploring downtown and there was this store of mexican art and the entrance to this beautiful museum, the building is very nice but much better the exhibitions. The look on the popular art is not the common place, goes deep to the roots and understanding of what it is this kind of art. The artist... More

We really enjoyed visiting many art museums in Mexico City. There's lots of great art to see and we would go back again to visit this one.

We went as an assignment from school and what a great visit it was for the whole family. If you are in the Alameda/Bellas Artes area the museum is just a short walk behind the Hilton and it is smallish so makes for a somewhat short visit. Let's start with the building as it is well restored and the courtyard... More

As an artist I greatly appreciated the work in this museum. It is the real "folk art" of Mexico...beautifully presented. I just cannot say enough good things about this museum. If you want to see Mexican crafts at their best please come here. Also, the gift shop, as far as I am concerned, had the very best examples or crafts... More

This was well worth the visit -- it's not a big museum but the building itself is fascinating and it's bright and cheery. The exhibits are well laid out and not overwhelming -- you can do the entire museum in a morning. And its worth a visit to the gift shop. I found some great local treasures/souvenirs at all price...

This museum has been one of our highlights here in Mexico City. It shows the amazing, vibrant artistic drive of the Mexican people. The many screens showing live video of the Mexican people actually performing their art adds tremendously to the experience. And it's free on Sundays!

We thought this the best of the various museums we visited in Mexico City. We are not particularly into indigenous arts and crafts, but this place was a gem. Everything was very well displayed and we got a real feel for the artisanal products created in the various regions of the country. Some were exquisite, such as the miniature sculptures... More
