    Beautiful museum

    Reviewed 04 September 2017

    We loved this museum! Mexican folk art is so vibrant it will certainly appeal to children of all ages. Kids will especially enjoy wooden and papier-mache creatures and animals, funny-looking skeletons, and other colorful sculptures.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    We’re sorry, but parents haven’t shared any tips about this place yet.
