Fodor's Expert Review Museo Regional de la Cerámica

Tlaquepaque Museum/Gallery

The frequently changing exhibits at the Regional Museum of Ceramics are in the many rooms surrounding a central courtyard. Track the evolution of ceramic wares in the Atemajac Valley during the 20th century. The presentation isn't always strong, but the Spanish-language displays discuss six common processes used by local ceramics artisans, including barro bruñido, which involves polishing large urns with smoothed chunks of the mineral pyrite. Items in the gift shop are surprisingly uninteresting.
