Museum of Popular Cultures (“MAP”) and Vicinity

The “MAP” or Museum of Popular Arts has the finest collection of Mexican

folk art in the country. The hand-picked items reflect the impressive quality

of workmanship still to be found in Mexico.

The building itself is well worth the visit – one of the finest examples of art

deco (built in 1927), originally constructed to be the downtown fire station.

with very clever architectural modifications, it makes the perfect backdrop

for the most amazing collection of handicrafts in Mexico. A must for arts

and crafts lovers!  It also has the best handicraft shop in the city!

At the end of the tour we will take a short walk to visit Mexico’s one

block-long Chinatown and a trendy gourmet food market.
