Besides having a nice selection of ceramics that are typical of this region It is housed in an authentic 1800s country house when this area was considered the country before it was engulfed by the city of Guadalajara. It only takes a few minutes to really wonder through this museum and many times there are artists creating in the courtyard... More

We visited on a Sunday and it was free. Near the entrance were artisans demonstrating how they made their wares. Inside were a number of rooms showing both historic and contemporary ceramic styles. The guy in the gift shop will answer any questions. I recommend visiting if you have any interest in Mexican ceramics.

There were just a handful of ceramic displays. Located on the Pedestrian Walkway....you can stop by for a look at the historic building. I would not go out of my way to visit..

As a longtime collector of older Tlaquepaque and Tonala ceramics, I was delighted to find this impressive museum's collection of contemporary ceramics from the the area (as well as other places in Mexico), dating from approximately 1980's to now. It is inspiring to see the longtime traditions of Mexican ceramics evolving into the astonishing, creative pieces on display in this... More

Good ceramic pieces. A beautiful building. Very friendly and helpful staff, but I don't think they speak English. Worth the visit.

The Regional Museum is worth a visit because it's free and close to the center of Tlaquepaque, but the Pantaleon Panduro Museum is much better and worth walking a bit further out to get a taste of the best local craftsmanship.

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.
