“Beautiful ceramic art work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This a small museum right on the main pedestrian street (Independencia) of Tlaquepaque. The nine rooms of the museum are small, but the ceramics housed inside are of high quality, with beautiful designs and colors. A collection of different styles and sizes is in display, from very small pieces representing local characters, to huge vases. Entrance is free and photography without flash is allowed, however the lighting on the ceiling doesn't help and makes all the objects and showcases so shinny that is almost impossible to take good photos.

“Historical Ceramics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A very good selection of historical regional ceramics but little English notes to each display. A program of English speaking volunteers might help.

“nice small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

it is free to visit and worth to go spend some time going through this small museum. There is also a nice small market outside of the museum-in the patio-selling some artisans.
