Underwritten by Mexican banker Manuel Espinosa Yglesias, the Amparo Museum holds an enviable collection of more than 1,700 pieces of pre-Hispanic art. It is housed in a marvelous colonial-era building that was once San Juan de Letrán Hospital, the city’s first healthcare center.

Reproductions by the painter Victor Mohedano introduce museum-goers to some of humanity’s first artistic expressions, and then give way to the long lines of the Time Codex. This is a prologue to the permanent collection comprised of eight galleries of Mesoamerican Art and ten galleries of art from the colonial period.

Close to twenty more spaces form the temporary exhibitions and the Museum’s center. Here select pieces from the Museum’s collection and from other museums and cultural institutions are exhibited.
