It's a small museum, not so cheap (according to the size of it) and I think it must be visited only if you're a very fan of this type of art. In my personal opinion, the "pictures" are rare and kind of crazy... Try going when it's free entrance

This is the only disappointing museum we visited in Mexico. It's really a teaching workshop for people who want to learn seriography and lithography. There are a couple of recent exhibits and one for the 1700's but no Katrinas are to be found. It's pretty specialized.

The museum had a banner outside celebrating its 25 years. So I'm surprised that this is only the fifth review on TripAdvisor. (I found the place through my Lonely Planet guidebook.) It's not large; there were only two exhibitions. The work on display when I was there was modern, lovingly made, and, I'd guess, not mass-produced (that is, small editions).

Small but precious museum of graphic arts. Well curated interesting shows. Strong tradition of Mexican printmaking is well represented here. Nice quiet shady area in front of museum!

This small but strong museum is in the same Plaza de la Santa Veracruz (neighborhood: Centro) as Museo Franz Mayer, which is also WELL worth a visit. It's dedicated to the history, preservation and promotion of Mexican graphic arts (the word “estampa” means “engraving” or “printing”) but they have a strong program of temporary exhibitions, too, and when I was...

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
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 around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
