Dolores Olmedo Museum

Xochimilco

Another attraction in this city is the museum outside the house of the collector Dolores Olmedo Patiño. Inside this piece of land, there are many artworks by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Pablo O’Higgins, in addition to hundreds of pre-Hispanic art pieces.

As you go through it, the freshness of a vast garden will make you forget about the heat, while the smell of freshly cut grass will end up convincing you that the decision to enter was a wise one; as there is no other space in the city that resembles it; where art, nature and exotic animals live together as they do in this old piece of land turned into a museum.

When we speak about exotic animals, we are not referring to those embodied in paint, but to the Xoloitzcuintles, that run freely, and transit without restrictions through its facilities, and are direct descendants of a couple of dogs that Diego Rivera inherited to the collector.

In those same gardens, it is not surprising to come across a group of peacocks resting or walking around, spreading their wings as if revering the figure of Olmedo and her inseparable Xolo, with its embroidered dress and Tehuana headdress.
