Oboy, what can I say? We spent several hours just soaking up the beauty and balance of this stone palace that houses the Casa de Cultura in Morelia. You can feel the energy of the Spanish and indigenous craftsmen who carved this palace from stone. There is a perfection to its proportion and design seldom seen anywhere in the world.... More

After reading previous reviews I felt that some posters confused the Casa de la Cultura with the Casa de las Artesanias (museum and shops) which is next to the San Francisco church. The Casa de la Cultura is about a ten or 15 minute walk from the main plaza and cathedral and you need to enter from almost the backside... More

I love this place. It is like a museum that holds a collection of the best of the best Michoacán has to offer in the way of artesanias. But do not expect to get a bargain. Pay what they ask and take home the real thing. Or do like I do, and just look and enjoy.

An amazing display of the works of artisans from the region, including the unique handmade ceramic pineapples of many different designs and colours. The clay is extracted by hand near the villages of San José de Gracia and Patamban, the only places in the world where these pineapples are made. We loved so many of them - but could only... More

this place is endless, every corner you turn has wonderful surprises in store. There is so much to look at from some of the most talented artists and artisans in the country. Upstairs are shops also that you can purchase items from all the surrounding towns that specialize in their own arts such as pottery, weaving, Catrina dolls....a MUST see!
