About
Desde su apertura al público, en marzo de 2006, el MAP se ha propuesto ser un referente indiscutible del arte popular mexicano, impulsándolo a través de sus exposiciones permanente, temporales e itinerantes; así como talleres para niños, artesanos y público en general; concursos, seminarios y actividades extra muros. Hoy en día resulta un magnífico escaparate de nuestras raíces, tradiciones y habilidades artísticas, que busca revalorar su riqueza y el trabajo de cerca de ocho millones de personas involucradas en los procesos artesanales, para el conocimiento y disfrute de las actuales y futuras generaciones. El público encuentra en el MAP un espacio único en su tipo; que al visitarlo, es como si realizara un recorrido por las diferentes regiones de México, poseedoras de entornos naturales, sociales, costumbres, tradiciones y estética propios.

Not to be overlooked

Not sure why this museum wasn't originally on my to-do list but I sure am glad I went. Highly recommended.

Loved this museum!
Mar 2021
We absolutely loved this museum and the amazing variety of items it showcases! So many different styles and mediums of artwork displayed here, a really nice cross-section of Mexican culture is presented. This would be a good museum for kids too, since it's not so big and the pinatas and giant, colorful paper-mache surreal figures are very appealing to all ages. I would absolutely go back again. This and the Anthropology Museum were my 2 favorites.

Beautiful museum, open during Covid
Mar 2021 • Solo
As many attractions are closed due to the pandemic, this is a good option for those willing to visit a quiet/clean/safe space with a beautiful exhibition on Mexican popular culture. Lots of items, from urns, dresses, collars and masks to contemporary art. Highly recommended (entrance is 60 Mexican pesos; cards not accepted). There is also a store. Some of the items may look pricey but if you look around you may find some high quality stuff, worth checking.

Cool Art Deco Museum

A treasure trove of Mexico's living folk art traditions. A great place to take the kids as they will love the color and craziness of it all.

In a city filled with so many good museums, this one is a favorite. Gorgeous, colorful artwork and crafts and a nice, manageable size.

Wonderful art in beautiful spaces
Feb 2020
The art here was so varied and interesting. Photos were taken just so I wouldn't forget a book to find later or information to research. It was very worthwhile.

Not very popular museum but super worth it
Feb 2020
We hesitate on going as it not featured as one of the most important museums at Mexico City , but I am very glad we did as it was beautiful and we got to see true mexican art.

The bonus is their store, it has great original things for souvenirs.

Delightful
Nov 2019
My husband and I are very interested in folk art so this museum was a must-see during our visit to CDMX. The exhibits are delightful, beautifully displayed and annotated. This is worth a few hours for those who appreciate indigenous craftsmanship.

ok....
Feb 2020
I was walking back from Mercado San Juan and came across the museum which is free on Sundays! The inside of the building is really cool and there's a lot of stuff in the museum, but it felt like a glorified gift shop for the most part. I think it would be a great place to bring kids!
