“Overwhelming and nicely displayed collection of Mexican Crafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

If you are enthusiastic about popular arts and crafts you can't miss this museum which shows all kinds of materials smartly converted into pieces of art with just the hands and minds of people who have transmitted the wisdom of their ancestors and converted noble materials into useful (or not) everyday objects that make your life more enjoyable.

“Well worthwhile.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

A charming museum in a great art deco building, its not just the presentation that makes it worthwhile.... the descriptions and explanations are beautifully written. Also has one of the best gift shops of any museum in the city.

“Overrated ... not well-organized ...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

I went to this museum with high expectations ... I was disappointed.

The layout is not friendly and in my opinion the popular art on display is quite limited and almost touristy in nature.

They really need to step up there game ... go to the other museums in the Centro first!

“A must-see museum if you came to Mexico City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

This museum is an excellent introduction to the arts and crafts of the people in Mexico. It's organized by theme and region. In a rare coincidence, both the building (Art Deco, in great shape) and the content of the museum are great.
It is located one block from the Alameda, so anyone visiting the Centro Historico can stop by .
