El Museo de Arte Popular es una institución dedicada a promover y preservar el arte popular mexicano. Se localiza en el Centro Histórico de la Ciudad de México en un predio que pertenecía a una vieja estación de bomberos, el museo contiene una colección que incluye tapetes, cerámica, vasos, piñatas, alebrijes, muebles, juguetes, utensilios de cocina, entre otros objetos. Sin embargo, el museo es conocido principalmente como patrocinador del desfile anual Noche de Alebrijes en el cual criaturas fantásticas se construyen a escala monumental y luego desfilan desde el Zócalo hasta el Monumento a la Independencia, compitiendo por premios.
Abrió sus puertas en marzo de 2006 para convertirse en un referente de la artesanía mexicana y promoverla, a través de talleres y otros eventos, al país y al turismo extranjero así como dignificar la artesanía mediante la restauración de obras antiguas y fomentar su creación tanto en el interior del museo como de forma externa.

The way they organized the rooms is great. Some folk art is more interesting than other. There's a room at the end with more modern folk art which I really liked. Sunday's there's free entry. Worth visiting then. It's not too crowded either.

Beautiful and high quality exhibition about the amazing amount of crafts that are to be found all over Mexico. Even if you have never shown any interest in craft, this museum shows you a fascinating overview of skills, objects, movies, colors, textures of the various areas in Mexico that have produced - and in many cases are still producing - craft products. The museum itself is large, in a beautiful building and has all facilities. Texts are in Spanish and English.

What a cool neo-pop-art experience, mixed with good historical art from various states of Mexico. Not a lot of people there when we went in, so easy to loiter and soak in all that is of interest. Looks like they have temporary installations, so I’d expect some things would be different next time I go through. Find the time to visit, and save a little time at the end for a visit to gift shop. If you ask, they may offer a discount.

Worth checking to see if they have an exhibit. It's a beautiful compound. The day I visited they had an extensive exhibit of nativity scenes that seem to have been contributed by maybe 100 pueblos in Mexico, and an exhibit of historic political cartoons.

Absolutely my favorite museum, in a city of fantastic museums. Almost every piece in the collection is amazing. The gift shop is quite good, too.

This museum has a wonderfully lit gorgeous atrium with beautifully hung art pieces. The art throughout the museum was gorgeously displayed and it had a different layout compared to some museums that have just big cavernous rooms. Overall had a lovely afternoon here!

This museum was by far the best one in mexico city and one of my all time favorites. The displayed items were all amazing. They are not historical artefacts but hand made pieces by artists and artisans, all colorful and surreal, representing the local culture. Spare a good hour or two for this place.

Beautiful mexican folk art museum. Very nicely displayed. Highly recommended!

Definitely go see the alebrijes at night for free. That was the only part of the museum I've been to unfortunately, but worth a visit for this alone. People put on illuminated alebrije costumes/exoskeletons and it's fun to pose with them. They are super creative. You'll also be able to see superb examples of the paper machet versions.

A nice museum for foreigners. The shop at the entrance is super overpriced but they do have pretty crafts from around the country. Closely located to Bellas Artes and Alameda.

This was without exception my favourite art museum in CDMX. Exquisite atrium building displaying a monumental range of Mexican artisan work. More than just regional craft, the work here really evokes the spirit of Mexico. Beautifully displayed objet in a light and airy setting. In my opinion a must see museum.

Love this place. The shop is amazing, although a bit expensive. This is a great place if you want to take nice souvenirs or gifts back home. The museum is also fantastic.

One of the best museum I've ever visited, so authentic, colorful and lively ! Don't miss it if you like popular Mexican art and want to see and understand it. It features modern art. The museum is 60$, free for students and on Sundays.

It's totally worth it! Take your time and go through all the rooms, they have pieces from every state in Mexico and they also have itinerant shows and workshops, so check before going. It's free on Sundays and the store has amazing things! 👌
