International Museum of the Baroque

Puebla

Situated in Angelopolis (the southern trend zone in Puebla) the Museo Internacional del Barroco (International Museum of the Baroque) brings together the relevance of one of the most important artistic movements during the 17th and 18th centuries and the magnificence of modern architecture.

The seven halls in this museum are dedicated to the Baroque period in which the most impressive buildings of colonial Mexico were built. However, it was useful to promote the Catholic Church and European monarchies' objectives.

There is a pavilion exclusively dedicated to the city of Puebla and its large baroque patrimony, in addition to “la sala de Ciencia y Literatura” (science and literature hall), where the creativity of the first baroque poet, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, is enhanced. With prior reservation, you can visit the area where the works are restored.

Furthermore, the rich cultural heritage, the architecture of “el Museo Internacional de Barroco” is a visual feast. The design was under the charge of the Japanese Toyo Ito, winner of the Pritzker Prize, which is known for being the Nobel of architecture. The complex is traced with curved white walls, water mirrors and minimalist gardens where you can rest after the museum inner tour.

To complement the visit, the site has a Baroque Restaurant, whose gastronomy is inspired by the life of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, under the supervision of the Mexican chefs Martha Ortíz Chapa and Alex Cuatepotzo. The space lets you admire through its large windows the “Eco Parque Metropolitano” (eco metropolitan park).

El Museo Internacional del Barroco is located in Vía Atlixcáyotl 2501. It is open Tuesday to Sunday.
