In the Huatápera, an old colonial courtyard building near the northeast corner of the main plaza, is this three-room museum. Built in the 1530s by Fray Juan de San Miguel, this relic once housed the first hospital in the Americas. The decorations around the doors and windows were carved by Purépecha artisans in a Mudejar style. The museum showcases regional artesanías, such as ceramics from Capula and lacquerware from Quiroga.
