  • It has a nice collection of colonial art, beautifully presented, and Palace which shows well deserves a visit by itself alone. It has a central courtyard with a cafe that offers very nice while you take a cup of coffee and read something.

  • I would have never imagined within the everyday city traffic and the world's people in the area, there was a so quiet, with wonderful examples of art and interesting temporary exhibitions. Them recommend that if never have gone and are near, not stop of visit it, is surprise and will spend a moment very pleasant. In addition to a tour, you can enjoy in the cafeteria a rich coffee or some snack enjoying a pleasant atmosphere of a fountain in the center of a small garden. You feel for a moment at a corner of the province.

  • This museum is a hidden gem in downtown Mexico. It specializes in decorative arts and usually has good additional exhibitions. The house and central patio are amazing.

  • 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.
