Museo de Arte Popular de Yucatán information
In a building built in 1906, the Museo de Arte Popular de Yucatán has a small rotating exhibition downstairs that features pop art from around Mexico. The upstairs exhibitions don’t have any explanatory signs yet, but they give you an idea of how locals embroider huipiles (long, woven, white sleeveless tunics with intricate, colorful embroidery), carve ceremonial masks and weave hammocks.
