We were walking the main street and just happened to poke our noses into this museum. From the street, it is extremely unassuming...one might think it was a restaurant or office complex. But, no, it is a small version of the museum of the same name in the DF, where much of the best stuff can be found in the gift shop! Aside from being smaller, we were impressed that the exhibits were presented with care and thoughtfulness. And, even better, many of these modern renditions of folk art, were rendered with great skill. We enjoyed virtually every piece presented. Being a cheapo, I might say that the best part was that it was free. But this collection was better than that. Viva la Museo de Arte Popular de Cuernavaca.

As a collector of Mexican Folk Art for the past 40 years, this collection is by far the most impressive I've seen with the best artisans represented from all regions of Mexico. Every exhibit is beautifully executed for viewing and the quality of the objects displayed are the best. REALLY IMPRESSIVE!

I loved this museum, I think it shows the best of the Mexican heritage. Mexican artisans are not always appreciated and I applaud this place for doing it! Places like this prove Mexico is way more than tequila and sombreros, please don't miss the opportunity to come here!

This new museum in a beautiful Colonial building has a magnificent collection of some of the best artsans producing the finest folk art from exqusite embroideries on huipiles to ceramic art of famous pottery families. Those who appreciate Mexican folk art will be in for a treat. This is the best collection I have seen in Mexico.
