The five rooms of this museum contain a stunning collection of pre-hispanic art and artifacts that, in some regards, far exceeds the quality of pieces on display at the much larger collection in the museum adjacent to Santo Domingo church.
We spent two hours here and enjoyed every minute. Aside from the historic importance of these pieces, what's remarkable is to see how clearly they influenced Tamayo's work, and how they continue to influence the work of hundreds of painters, sculptors, potters, weavers and other artists across Oaxaca.
