good variety of local handcrafts , but more expensive than the artesan market in front of the convent. There is a cafe in the courtyard but does not look like they want to give you service or do have somethuing in stock

Small but lovely exhibit. Top quality Mexican crafts in a small town setting., a great value for just a few pesos. This center supports local art and artists and well as providing exposure to wonderful art from around Mexico.

This museum may be small, but it packs lots of gorgeous art within its walls. It is also clean, well-lit, and has good signage. If you love Mexican folk art, it's a must-see experience.

I enjoyed my short visit here; well worth the modest price of admission. Purchasing the handicrafts offered for sale provides a living wage for the women who make the goods.

The museum exhibit is interesting enough, albeit very small. However, it is worth a quick visit. I am more interested in the shop. The prices are a bit high; however, profits go to the local artisans in surrounding villages who make the products. I usually...More
