#1 of 39 Museums in Oaxaca
That is a great time to visit Oaxaca to experience the simple pleasures of parades in the streets, excellent food, including pan de muertos (special holiday bread), and galleries and museums.
Beautifully situated and well preserved Zapotec site with steal, temples, stone carvings, ball court and Tomb 7 + small museum with well displayed artefacts, small shop and cafe.

My wife and I have visited a fair amount of museums at various Archeological sites in Mexico, but this small museum had the best collection of artifacts we've seen.
This is a splending collection, one of the best small museums in all Mexico.All the artefacts were collected by Tamayo for their beauty rather than their historic value.
#3 of 39 Museums in Oaxaca
One of the best museums of pre-columbian Art and culture I have ever seen, and set within a spectacular and interesting convent.
We've been travelling in many Mexican cities and visited local museums offering us an idea of their specific past and current culture.

This museum is also one of the most beautifully presented I have seen, I have high standards as London Museums take a lot to beat!
(And like most of the museums in Oaxaca, it has clean well-lit banyos!)

Excellent museum-like store that displays alejibres
Very impressive collection of local artisans work, from high end museum quality to smaller figurines and everything in between.
#6 of 39 Museums in Oaxaca
Some museums, like the Museo Textil de Oaxaca, stand out for achieving that perfect balance between a cohesive collection and outstanding display.
If you have Museum phobia and get easily overwhelmed in large museums, this is the place for you.

As with much contemporary art, some is whimsical and intended to make you question our very notion of art itself (especially art that is typically found in museums).
We have been to a number of contemporary art museums, and this one rates well in comparison, if somewhat small in size.

Went to the Bravo museum several times to see the exhibit of photographers associated with Mary Ellen Mark.
A Beautiful house hosts this small museum.

Many theaters, museums and other public buildings have been named after Benito Juarez throughout Mexico.
This museum is small and compact with different rooms dedicated to specific periods of Spanish and Oaxaca history and crafts.

Tamayo's own museum of pre-Hispanic art, which he created and left to the city, is nearby.
This museum focuses on topical exhibits of Oaxacan painters.

This small museum located in downtown Oaxaca is well worth a visit.
