  • I love Mexicans!
  • Beautiful architecture and a different thematic. Free for visiting.
  • A hidden gem in the city of Oaxaca! Do not miss the brick wall in the center patio, amazing!
  • Beautiful building. High quality display. Unfortunately, only a small part of reportedly large collection is on display.
  • Excellent displays, weaving classes given, good explanatory bound guide-booklets in each room (only in Spanish). Free entry.
