Museo Guillermo Spratling

Museum in Taxco

This well laid-out three-story history and archaeology museum is off an alley behind Templo de Santa Prisca. It contains a small collection of pre-Hispanic jewelry, art, pottery and sculpture from US silversmith William Spratling’s private collection. The phallic cult pieces are a particular eye-opener. The basement displays examples of Spratling’s designs using pre-Hispanic motifs. The top floor hosts occasional temporary exhibits.
