Museo Franz Mayer
This magnificently restored 17th-century building houses the museum, which opened in 1986 in what was the Hospital of San Juan de Dios together with the temple of the same name. The vast collection of objects on display is related to the applied arts. The everyday, commonplace pieces include furniture, gadgets, religious iconography, and watches. As a German financier who made his fortune in Mexico, Mr. Franz Mayer bequeathed his collection to the people of his adopted homeland. Other halls include paintings from the period of the Viceroys as well as decorative arts, religious sculptures and a collection of pieces from Europe and the Far East. There is a lovely interior courtyard and a remarkable library with an incredible collection of 800 different volumes of Don Quixote de la Mancha authored by the Spaniard, Miguel de Cervantes; many are both rare and unique.
