Museo de Arte Popular
Alejandra Carbajal

The most representative collection of Mexican folklore lies within the colossal and brilliant Museum of Popular Art. What was once the headquarters of the city’s General Police Inspection and the General Firefighters Barracks (built in 1928), now is home to standout materials of popular Mexican art, all carefully kept at the proper temperature and humidity. This art deco jewel has four permanent rooms that begin on the third floor.

Its modern installations are surprising, with interactive screens and computers that probably capture the attention of young audiences the most. The Museum of Popular Art promotes Mexican popular art for national and international enjoyment. Another museum that we can be proud of.
