MUCAL

Top choice museum in Querétaro

The first of its kind in the world, this extraordinary museum is the labor of love of its owner Señor Landin, whose family has been producing calendars in Mexico for decades. There are two parts to the museum: 19 exhibition rooms that house the original artworks (including reproductions) that featured in decades of Mexico's calendars, along with over 400 original retro-style calendars themselves. The second is the building itself, a stunningly renovated mansion, complete with beautiful gardens and courtyards.

The outdoor areas and the excellent cafe set on its lawns provide a perfect oasis from the heat, and a place to reflect on the sometimes amusing (and often titillating and politically incorrect) retro calendar depictions.
