Go up the stairs to see great contemporary art, on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Sully on the second floor with his beautiful, colorful Caribbean paintings, and Climent on the third floor with some rather erotic paintings as well.

The museum itself was somewhat disappointing but there is a temporary exhibition of extremely fine contemporary water colors from all over the world

The first time I visited this museum, there were some absolutely splendid temporary exhibits, one about lucha libre masks, one about architect Luis Baragan, another about day of the dead altars. Good, contemporary stuff! When I returned on a subsequent trip it was empty. Gather it's being refurbished. Looking forward to visit # three.

This is a huge palace converted to a museum. It seems like about half of the space is devoted to temporary exhibits. I expected much more detailed "voyage" through the city's history (which is indeed fascinating). There are a few rooms with antique furniture, 19th century prints, paintings and some religious art. Downstairs has 19th century carriages as well. A fascinating room whose walls are covered with painting sletches by Joaquin Clausell is definitely unique and worth seeing. Please be careful while exiting the building - the traffic on Pino Suarez is very dangerous and for some unknown reason just here in front of the building there is no divide between sidewalks and the actual streets. BTW, entry on Wednesdays is free.

This compact museum is housed in a wonderful 18th Century building that has been well preserved. There are some standing exhibits (19th Century carriages and a bus from the 1920s), and we enjoyed an exhibit based on traditional costumes from around Mexico. We especially liked viewing the marvelous photographs of Manuel Ramos-- the man who took the famous photo of Villa and Zapata sitting side-by-side at the National Palace. The entrance fee is 25 pesos, less if you have local student or teacher identification. The studio of Joaquin Clausell, a permanent exhibit, is a treat. Guides are available, though we didn't take advantage of this on this visit. This is easy walking distance from the Zocalo-- in the opposite direction from the Cathedral. There are a number of shopping centers and stores in this area; it can be very crowded. See if you can find the saddle shop that has all things charro or the wonderful huarache and leather goods store (El Colibri) on Pino Suarez Avenue.
