The Museo de Arte Popular

The Museo de Arte Popular is so much more than just a building full of spectacular pieces; it’s a window into Mexico’s artistic cultural history.

The Folk Art Museum (Museo de Arte Popular), located in a white Art Deco building in the historic center of Mexico City, focuses on the diversity of folk art and handicrafts in Mexico, showcasing pieces that range from pottery to textiles and everything in between. It's a great place to learn more about the indigenous peoples of Mexico through their creative works.

There are usually two or three non-permanent exhibitions running concurrently. They all focus on handicrafts, some delve deeper into a particular craft or material and others focus on how a theme is represented throughout Mexico. The museum is well known for organizing an annual night parade of large carved figures called alebrijes.

The museum can be crowded with families on weekends, as there are often workshops for children on weekends, but it's generally calm during the week.

Location: Revillagigedo 11, Colonia Centro, Ciudad de México.
