This is a highly specialized museum of very high quality. Its focus is decorative arts and painting from Mexico´s colonial era. The exhibits are breathtaking in its quality, the museography is excellent and the building is spectacular. My favourite piece is a painted screen from the XVII century that depicts on one side the conquest of the aztec empire by the Spaniards, and on the other side a map of XVII century Mexico City. What is amazing is looking at that map, you can orient yourself in today´s Mexico City downtown and see how little has changed in 400 years. The collection of silver is amazing, as well as the collection of ceramics. Once you see the permanent exhibits you need to go to the courtyard and have a coffee. I´m kiding you not - this museum has one of the prettiest cafeterias in any museum anywhere (maybe except the Louvre).
