Mexico City’s Museum of Folk Art

Mexico is a vastly multilingual and multiethnic country, where thousands of different indigenous folk traditions meld with Spanish colonial influences and modernism to create a distinctive culture that can be extremely difficult to categorize. As such it has one of the richest traditions of folk art (or as it is sometimes literally translated from Spanish, “popular art”) in the world. 

The Museo de Arte Popular embraces these uniquely Mexican crafts, displaying some of the weirdest and most wonderful religious articles, dioramas, monsters, skeletons, piñatas, and pottery you are likely to see anywhere.
