Museo De Las Artes Populares De Jalisco - Museum Guadalajara - Mexico

This museum is devoted to handicrafts, with special exhibits on the first floor of the colonial building and permanent installments on the second. The descriptions (in Spanish) do a good job of explaining the meaning and significance of local folk art, including "ex-votos" (prayer drawings) and regional costumes. The glass cases are full of fine specimens you wish you could take home to decorate your own "casa": glass art, toys, saddles, "equipal" chairs, pottery, masks, paintings, ornaments. There are a few items you can buy in glass cases on the first floor, including Catrina skeletons.
