The quality of the ceramic art on display is good but nowhere at the level of the ceramic art on display at the museum at El Refugio. There is one very friendly staff member who will gladly answer your questions and tell you some of the ghost legends regarding this site. I am not sure if she speaks English, however.

This museum is incredible. One, if not the finest, collection of Mexican ceramic art in the world. It includes pieces dating from the mid 1980's (if I observed correctly) until 2015, representing the most skilled artisans from eight states. We were there this morning Palm Sunday, the only visitors. Maestra Karla Veronica Juaregul Quintero was most helpful and enthusiastic about... More

What a great opportunity to see all the grand masters and fabulous ceramic artists in one place. This area is know for their many fabulous ceramic artists. A great waters,learn what is in the area. Many families continue to carry on the tradition. You can go to TONALA and buy many beautiful things from the artists in their home/ studio.

I was looking forward to visiting this museum but totally put off but the trash & construction in the empty courtyard. No signage to indicate there was an entrance to the museum from the courtyard.

I was very excited to see the ceramics museum in Tlaquepaque. We walked to the site and found the building closed and a for sale sign on the property. Sad, really.

But there is never enough money in mexico to do things that we would like. It has great samples of the different types of ceramics that have been made in Tlaquepaque and tonala over the years. They have a kitchen set up the way my mother in law used to cook so I like to show that off to my... More

This ceramics museum is on the pedestrian part of Independecia. It is free. The various types of pottery are beautiful, and especially fascinating were the miniature presidents of Mexico, I thought! There is also a gift shop.

If you go to one museum in Tlaquepaque, make it this one. There is a wonderful collection of Candelaria, Ken Edwards and some of the other real ceramic greats from the area. Everyone on the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and efficient. Wonderful building and grounds. Well-stocked and reasonable gift shop.
