Museo Franz Mayer

Posted by Lakshi Pathberiya

Av Hidalgo 45, Mexico City

 Occupies the old hospice of the San Juan de Dios order, which under the brief reign of Maximilian became a halfway house for prostitutes. The museum is the fruit of the efforts of German-born Franz Mayer. Prospering as a financier in his adopted Mexico, Mayer amassed the collection of Mexican silver, ceramics and furniture now on display.

The exhibit halls open onto a sumptuous colonial patio, where you can grab a bite at the excellent Cloister Café.

Opening Hours: 10am-5pm Tue-Fri, 11am-6pm Sat & Sun

Entrance Fee: Free on Tuesday
