Overview
More
Desde su apertura al público, en marzo de 2006, el MAP se ha propuesto ser un referente indiscutible del arte popular mexicano, impulsándolo a través de sus exposiciones permanente, temporales e itinerantes; así como talleres para niños, artesanos y público en general; concursos, seminarios y actividades extra muros. Hoy en día resulta un magnífico escaparate de nuestras raíces, tradiciones y habilidades artísticas, que busca revalorar su riqueza y el trabajo de cerca de ocho millones de personas involucradas en los procesos artesanales, para el conocimiento y disfrute de las actuales y futuras generaciones. El público encuentra en el MAP un espacio único en su tipo; que al visitarlo, es como si realizara un recorrido por las diferentes regiones de México, poseedoras de entornos naturales, sociales, costumbres, tradiciones y estética propios.

A must see museum with Mexican folk art traditions - great collections of handicrafts - loved the textile exhibits and the collection of colorful alebrijes - think "Coco"! Lots of beautiful items in the gift shop!

Definitely worth a stop for a good overview of Mexican craft in it multiple manifestations. If price is no object, they have an impressive gift shop.

This museum, in one of the quieter and quainter areas of Mexico City, was a real delight. I don't know if the exhibit we saw was temporary, or permanent - but it was wonderful: folk toys, painting, children's games, all beautifully displayed - some old...More

There are several rooms on multiple levels but not a ton of content. It is spacious and easy to view everything. The gift shop has several great gifts, but is, of course, overpriced. However, I'm told they support local artists. The leftover alibrije floats are...More

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander

All museums have rules about checking backpacks and all have coat checks. I have left luggage in various coat checks without a problem. But you could ask the concierge where you are staying to call the museum to be sure.
