The Mexican Cultural Institute is housed in a beautiful 100-year old mansion at 16th and Harvard St NW. It is well worth a visit to see the rotating exhibits, but more so to see the amazing architecture and murals. Group tours are available, but I found it more interesting to explore the multi-level building on my own. A perfect spot...
They currently have a beautiful exhibit on silver. The murals inside the beautiful mansion are breathtaking. The second floor has rooms with beautiful architecture and furniture. I would gladly visit again. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed our visit.. and it's free!
French classic home with French and Mexican decor, but what I loved is the tile patio with tiles named for each of Mexico's 31 states. A real gem of a place that I bet would get packed with weddings and corporate events if more people knew about it. I loved it.
