This museum has only three galeries, and is very small and not very interesting. We have tried to visit twice, both times one or two of the galeries were closed to change the exhibit. It appears to be mainly used for cultural events, which may...More

If you happen to be in the area ,you can hop in and take a walk, it's cheap anyway, otherwise it's a tiny museum.

This is a small museum, worth a short stop if you have time to spare in Coyoacan, otherwise it can be a miss. Northing like the major one downtown. Free for 60 plus, otherwise small admission fee. Exhibits rotate.

You really can't go wrong with an admission price of 14 pesos. The museum is small as other have noted, basically one main exhibition room. If the current exhibition is any indication, the curators have excellent attention to detail and the pieces are carefully displayed...More

This museum is located near the center of Coyoacan and is very cheap. I thought from the name it would be more "Pop Culture" but in fact it relates to Mexico's diversity and culture of the population. When I went in Oct 17 there was...More

We visited this museum twice. The first time the rotating exhibit included cartoon sculptures of popular Mexican characters. The second time, the exhibit documented foods native to Mexico including corn, beans, squash, and chiles. Both exhibits were very well done, and the exhibit areas are...More

This museum has a tiny foreign art collection.  Most artifacts are replicas. There are better places to spend a few days in Mexico City.

I was fairly disappointed because this pretty Museum in Coyoacan was fully dedicated to Accordion greats in Mexico and while it was mildly curious, it didn't justify the ticket price. If you are in Coyoacan and it is raining probably it could make sense to...More
