“Exceptional Pottery Museum”

Ranked #36 of 75 things to do in Colima
Attraction details
Reviewed August 27, 2017

This is an exceptional native pottery museum. The pottery tells a history of this region that is different than other parts of Mexico. The immigrants to Colima came from a different part of South America than the rest of Mexico. A remarkable accomplishment.

Having visited this small museo several times I can recommend it for if nothing else its brevity. My memory of Alejandro Rangel's Christmas cards from back in the 50's would be enough to interest me, but my mother having been an artist that often mentioned him made this visit even more meaningful. The museum and his home have been preserved with much of his art and furniture. Well worth the short cobblestone drive from the pueblo Comala.

I was not familiar with Rangel's work and really enjoyed visiting this museum. It is located in an old hacienda with lovely grounds. I loved the art. Definitely a "must see" in the Colima area.

Nogueras is located in the municipality of Colima. As homage to the famous artist Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo, the University of Colima created a museum and cultural center in what used to be part of his home. The museum is divided into 4 wings where his incredibly beautiful collection of art work is displayed. Rangel's art can also be seen on UNICEF Christmas cards. Also displayed in the museum are pre-columbian ceramics that were found in tombs around Nogueras. It is a little off the beaten track, hidden in the countryside of Colima, but worth the trip.

At the back of the Hacienda is a large, lush ecological reserve and botanical gardens. We enjoyed a peaceful walk in this reserve.

From Nogueras, we stopped for lunch at another quaint town, Comala. Here, we lunched at one of the famous botaneros (restaurants) typical to this area. Their dishes are called botanas, which are an assortment of appetizers - ceviche tostados, empanadas, taquitos, chilli rellenos, to name a few; and are supplied gratis with drink orders. Mariachis stroll the plaza providing musical entertainment. Comala is one of the oldest towns in Mexico with considerable historic significance.
