Museo de las Culturas Populares

Most people who visit Coyoacan will be familiar with Frida Kahlo’s house, the Casa Azul, and the main centre which consists of two plazas, separated by a through road. There are numerous roads and lanes leading off the two plazas though, and they are well worth exploring. A little way down one of them, Avenida Miguel Hidalgo is the Popular Culture Museum – map no. 40.

It’s not a huge museum, but at 11 pesos for entry and with new exhibitions regularly introduced, it is worth a visit. At the moment there’s a display of traditional woven products. There’s also a fabulous Tree of Life at the entrance, and some pretty colourful murals on exterior walls in the courtyards. I’ve uploaded some photos to Flickr – click here.
