in detail

The National Commission for the Development of Indigenous Peoples (CDI) opened Mi Museo Indígena to preserve, disseminate and strengthen the arts and culture of indigenous peoples and communities. This exhibition is the result of various rehabilitation work and museology of the historic building known as the former Customs Building of Pulque.

The building that houses the exhibits was built in the late eighteenth century and from then until the early nineteenth century it was a tax office where taxes were paid on the best known and most drunk alcoholic beverage of the population: pulque. Given its history and context, it was declared a national monument in 1931.

Today objects originating in the indigenous peoples of Mexico, dating from 1605 to the present are displayed. These include textiles, ceramics, lacquer, fibers, toys, miniatures, sculptures, masks, feather art, cardboard and paper, bone and shell, graphics and painting, furniture, metals, lapidary, jewelry, leather goods, musical instruments and glass.

The museum also offers a space for temporary exhibitions, where photographic exhibitions are highlighted among other things.
