Description:

This impressive new building houses the most colorful and tasteful collection of popular art in Mexico. Masks, piñatas, dancing skulls, "alebrijes" (dreamlike colorful creatures), fantastic glass and decorative art make this large museum a very children friendly and non-museum-goer friendly place. The splendidly displayed collection is well labeled and has English tour facilities and a souvenir shop that is a tourist's dream come true. A definite must see while in Mexico City.
