a small but charming museum right on the main street of Independencia. You can see and learn about the different ceramic traditions of the area. Informative and interesting.

I visited the museum a few days after the competition was over for the regional champions of ceramic arts. You're able to see examples of many different regional techniques, past winners, and present winners. No charge to visit. Nice bathrooms and friendly staffers.

Good ceramic pieces. A beautiful building. Very friendly and helpful staff, but I don't think they speak English. Worth the visit.

The Regional Museum is worth a visit because it's free and close to the center of Tlaquepaque, but the Pantaleon Panduro Museum is much better and worth walking a bit further out to get a taste of the best local craftsmanship.
