This museum is in an historic house slightly northwest of the cathedral; it is a handsome building with numerous rooms that are more-or-less chronologically arranged. We loved the ways in which the objects were displayed, and the exceptional quality of many of the works of art, from striking portrait heads in stucco to the ceramics (a whole case of dogs!)... 更多
If you're interested in the Mayan culture and are in Oaxaca, the Rufino Museum is a must. This famous Mexican painter spend a large portion of the money he made in buying artefacts preventing them from being dispersed around the world and helping Mexicans in better undestanding their past. Almost each piece has it's decription. The only annoying thing was... 更多
The museum is well laid out and the collection is very well displayed. There are many signs (in Spanish) explaining the works of art. The collection is fabulous. Highly recommended.
Rufino Tamayo was a great artist and he used the ancient Mayan and native Mexican and Guatemalan artisan work as inspiration for some of his own art. The museum houses a lovely collection of special pieces and has good description in English. The house has a library, and a courtyard and it was pleasant to view the collection and then... 更多
This little museum has a stunning collection of ancient art from around the region. As others have noted, there is no English signage -- but most of the rooms have cards available with a translation, so look for those if you have a question. The woman at the front desk was extremely friendly and offered my daughter the student rate... 更多
Signage is almost 100 percent Spanish (This is a museum in Mexico, after all.) but that does not detract at all from this excellent collection of Pre-Hispanic art. Even if you have been to the Anthropology Museum in Mexico City, this collection has many new things to see. The world owes the artist Rufino Tamayo a debt of gratitude for... 更多
This is a wonderful museum filled with ceramic antiquities. The building itself is nice as well. It really gives you an insight into the people of thousands of years ago and what went on in their lives through their sculpture/art. We bought one of the fat ceramic dogs in the gift shop, couldn't resist!
On the day we visited, there was almost no one else there. So unlike a visit to a more famous museum, we were not bothered by tour groups taking selfies in front of the exhibits.
