  • The enclosure if only talking about its history, housing the most extensive permanent collection in silver and decorative art, its temporary exhibitions a pleasure to them enjoy. In my case I saw the Expo road walked from Mario Martin del Campo, his imagination and great dexterity to handle different techniques make this exhibition a world where your imagination fly.

  • One of the hidden jewels of Mexico City. Perhaps the best collection of decorative arts in Latin America. Superb silver, furniture, Talavera, ivory from colonial period.
  • Impressive marquetry on display. Temporary exhibits on the balcony above a charming courtyard. Was very tranquil in the rain.
  • De mis museos favoritas. Excelentes muestras de diseño.
