Rufino Tamayo was a great painter and printmaker from Oaxaca. He lived in NYC and taught art at Manhattan's famed private school the Dalton School. This museum houses his collection of stone and ceramic artifacts from all over Mexico. It is not very big, but hte works are displayed with great attention to detail. Some of the larger pieces like the fine Maya stone stela, are not enclosed in glass, so you can get great pictures.
Many of the smaller ceramic figures are surprisingly like cartoon characters. There is a ceramic display of the Pre-hispanic ball game from the state of Nayarit that is fantastic.
Check the hours before you go, most museums close on Monday, but this one seems to close on Tues.
