Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares Review

A huge arbol de la vida (tree of life) sculpture stands in the courtyard of this museum devoted to popular culture and regional arts and crafts. Its exhibitions and events are nicely varied, including children's workshops, concerts of traditional music and dance performances. On weekends the courtyard becomes a small crafts-and-sweets market with some worthwhile exhibitors displaying their wares from all over the country. The museum shop stocks art books and high-quality crafts.
