Stunning colourful artworks native to Mexico

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

This museum is conveniently located behind the Hilton near the Reforma. It is in a large multi-story building surrounding a center courtyard. The exhibits are beautiful and the folk art is AMAZING. There is a fantastic gift shop as well. I would recommend visiting this museum to anyone interested in Mexican folk art.

This wonderful museum holds wonderful examples of artisans' works from the various regions of Mexico. The displays, themselves, are works of art. It is a short walk from the Alameda.

The Museo de Arte Popular beautifully presents the color and diversity of Mexican craft and decorative arts. The facility is well lit and the range of objects is arresting. I enjoyed the collection so much, I actually went twice during a recent one week stay.

Lovely bright exhibition space. Quirky exhibits and one of the best stocked gift shops in town. Its an easily laid out museum and wont take long to get around - popular art, Rotating exhibitions. The building itself is pleasant to chill out in for an hour or so.
