Museo de la Ciudad Teodoro Cano

Museum in Papantla

Legendary Paplanta artist Teodoro Cano (b 1932) was once a student of Mexican art giant Diego Rivera. This small museum displays a handful of Cano's fine paintings, an alluring combination of both dark and ebullient scenes that are drawn almost exclusively from Totonac culture. The Totonac theme extends to the museum’s other artifacts, including photos and traditional clothing displays. It’s small, but immensely satisfying. A modern on-site auditorium hosts regular cultural events.
