Museo Rafael Coronel

Museo Rafael Coronel Review

Concealed by the Ex-Convento de San Francisco's mellow, pink, 18th-century facade is a rambling structure of open, arched corridors, all leading through garden patios to rooms that exhibit, on a rotating basis, 3,000 of the museum's 10,000 máscaras (masks). These representations of saints and devils, wise men and fools, animals and humans were once used in Mexican regional festivals. The museum also has a remarkable display of puppets, pre-Hispanic art, photography, and paintings. It's northeast of the town center, toward Lomas del Calvario.
