The museum is housed in a rambling stone structure, originally dating from the Sixteenth Century, formerly known as Hacienda La Noria with spacious gardens and water fowl, geese, ducks, peacocks, native turkeys and Mexican hairless Xoloitzcuintle dogs. The world’s most important collections of works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are housed here. There is, as well, a collection of the woodcuts and book illustrations by Russo-French painter Angelina Beloff, a privileged display of over nine hundred archaeological pieces provides interest and contrast, as well as a glimpse of the aesthetic of a number among Mexico’s diverse ancient cultures, a collection of popular art presents the largely-anonymous masterpieces of ceramic, wood, tin, lacquer, papier-mâché and copper, that village craftsman have produced for generations. Another setting, Dolores Olmedo’s own home, provides an additional panorama of art from the Far East. This tour can be extended with a visit to famous "floating gardens" in Xochimilco.
