“One of the most beautiful museums we visited in Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Yes, there is a lot of museums in Mexico, and we visited some with pleasure. But our favorite has been the Museo de Arte Popular, vibrant with life, color, roots and beauty.

“Beautiful Art!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Great exhibits of folk art thru the ages in Mexico and throughout the country. The exhibits themselves are set up so well, very nicely designed. A great museum, well worth the time. Beautiful work.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

So many different objects here. Break from " more of the same " in other museums. Much could be classified as upmarket craft work

“highlight of Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Don't miss it. Excellent collection. It's all the stuff that you see in every touristy gift shop everywhere in Mexico, but the good stuff done at a truly fine art level. Beautiful. Even breath-taking.

“favorite museum in mexico!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

wow this museum is by far the best art museum ive ever visited, in all of my travels. it covers so many popular arts and beauitful pieces. take your time to read all the descriptions so you really understand mexico and the culture. so many people see the typical skeletons or devils and dont really know their meaning or history, all the descriptions are in english for that very reason. it was very cold inside so bring a coat! also for students its free or a discount (cant remember) so bring your ID. DO NOT MISS THIS
