Ceramics, piñatas, rugs, toys, furniture, and fantastical alebrije creatures populate the collection held in this building from 1928, considered the second most important art deco structure in Mexico.
Whoever visits this colorful spot will find attractive exhibits of pieces created by folk art masters. Here is artwork from years gone by together with new pieces representing handicrafts from all over Mexico—basketry; silverwork; textiles; pottery; gold work; objects made with glass, paper, and cardboard; and wood carvings.
Their annual Noche de Alebrijes, in which gigantic fantastical creatures parade out of the MAP down Zócalo and Reforma streets, has now become a tradition.Location
