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.
