Franz Mayer Museum


In this space, the visitor may appreciate one of the best collections of decorative arts of Mexico, made up by pieces from the 16th to the 19th centuries, from Mexico, Europe and the East. Silversmithing, ceramics, furniture, textiles, sculpture, and painting are the most important genres exhibited.

In the cloister of the Former Hospital of San Juan de Dios, one of the attractions of the museum, we present temporary exhibitions and is a requirement to know the three rooms decorated in a Viceregal way: a dining room, a cabinet, and a chapel.
In the top of the cloister there is a library with a collection of over 14 thousand volumes, a collection that includes old and unique books, historic documents and 800 different editions of The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha.

The Franz Mayer Museum offers guided tours, courses, lectures, concerts, book launches, shows, children’s workshops, a cafeteria decorated with pottery from the collection, store, bookstore, and parking lot.

The headquarters building of the Museum was established on 1582 by Pedro López and served for four centuries as a hospital of the Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God, known as the Hospital of Woman. It is located in the Santa Veracruz Square, next to the National Museum of Graphic Arts.
