Museo de Arte Popular

As its name indicates, this museum houses the most representative collection of Mexican folklore, which is very particular and characteristic. The building that houses the museum was in the past the headquarters of the General Police Inspectorate and the General Fire Department of the city in 1928, as published by the web portal timeoutmexico.mx. As the same portal states, the pieces are preserved at the perfect temperature and humidity. The museum is composed of four permanent rooms starting from the first floor and perhaps attract young audiences by hosting interactive material.

Museum of Tlatelolco

In Tlatelolco, the Memorial of 68 is located, an architectural space in which the objective is to honor the memory of what happened in Mexico in October 1968, precisely in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas. It was there where hundreds of students from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the National Polytechnic Institute belonging to the student movement that drove the demonstrations were killed. In this space, there are not only permanent exhibitions such as "M68 memorial 1968, social movements" but also other temporary ones that are complemented by several of the cultural events that take place in these facilities.
