We stopped at the Dolores Olmedo Patino museum on the way out to Xochimilco (it's about 6 blocks from the metro stop). Gorgeous setting--green and lush, with peacocks on the lawns and Xoloitzcuintles (Mexican hairless dogs) in an enclosure. There was an interesting temporary exhibit (which we had no time to visit), and the permanent collection is great--well-preserved archaeological pieces of different cultures (Maya, Zapotec, Mixtec...) and paintings by a variety of artists, including several rooms dedicated to artwork by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Well worth a visit, we loved it and were so happy we went--even more so because it was Tuesday, when the museum admission is free!
