National Copper MuseumMuseo Nacional del Cobre
Check out the copper pieces on display that illustrate the origins, processes, and new techniques employed in the Purépecha’s traditional handicraft work.
The exhibits in the National Copper Museum range from the first creations by Purépechan artisans, to the hammered copper objects that have won awards in national fairs. A number of pre-Hispanic pieces are also on display in this museum close to the main square.
The museum has a workshop where you can see how the artisans shape copper.
