National Mask Museum of San Luis Potosi

  • CATEGORY: Museums
  • PHONES: (444) 812 3025


This museum is considered among the best in Mexico due to its peculiarity and great collection of nearly a thousand masks from every corner of the country. The exhibit is completed with a small collection of Asian masks, mainly from India.

Magic and tradition intertwined with the ancestral rite symbolism already lost in time and substituted for new and complex syncretism in which the popular wit is present in each false face.

This is an institution dedicated to the study, promotion and spreading the Mexican mask as a significant cultural product, aspiring to present the most characteristic about mask and the endless traditions that represent the world, and linking its symbolism with different art expressions as well.
