Our Voice

The Franz Mayer Museum is one of Mexico City's most important, housing of our conuntry´s richest collections of art. Mayer was financially succesful in Mexico an used his wealth to acquire works he collected in his house in Mexico City's Las Lomas distrinct.
His collections of Colonial screens, ceramics from variaus parts of the country, silver extracted from our mines and transformed into works of art, and the religious sculptures known as estofados are among the most important to have been gathered by private collectors. Rare books made up part of his splendid library. All this he left to the people of Mexico.
