A very interesting museum with some great "off the grid" contemporary art.

The strength of this museum is the curatorship it has for the different exhibitions. It is very worthwhile to go to reflect and read the stories that each object tells. Despite being a relatively small space, it is used very well and makes the experience leave a good taste in your mouth.

ABOUT US? Have you ever looked at an object and wondered about its life and the lives of the people who used it? Have you ever wondered who could have imagined, designed and produced it? How did a can of soup, the funeral photo of a dead child or the twelve wigs of a famous star come to a museum? What do things tell us when we look at them and ask them the right questions? The MODO, Museum of the Object of the Object, inaugurated in 2010, has been dedicated to telling stories through artifacts that have accompanied daily life in our country for more than 200 years. Through the more than 140,000 components of its collection, the museum makes a historical review of Mexico since the beginning of the 19th century: cultural, aesthetic and social movements, technological development, trends and changes in ways of thinking and relating to the world. Exterior. Valuable and courageous pieces are selected by themes and grouped into temporary exhibitions in order to show and imagine or live those moments that, through love and nostalgia, are stored in the memory of all of us. In the exhibitions, you will be able to learn about fascinating stories that have been jealously guarded in a large number of objects, some everyday, others very rare, others with historical value, but all of them, testimony to the life and culture of Mexican society. For five years MODO, guided by the artist Ricardo Caballero, has established a very close link with the population considered psychiatric from the Tepepan Women's Center and the Men's Center for Psychosocial Rehabilitation, CEVAREPSI. This link has been strengthened over time, it has opened communication bridges from the inside to the outside, and has given us opportunities to understand a sector of the prison population that rarely has the opportunity to express itself.

A magical space. Despite being a small museum, what makes it stand out is the magic in every little detail that is shared through the visual narrative of each object, bringing a story to life. The facilities are extremely well maintained, the staff is very attentive. I found the fact that they invite you to participate in the educational activities of the museum very inclusive. I recommend visiting it, it will not take much of your time and you will have a pleasant experience. Tip: usually on weekends it is very crowded, and being a small space you may not enjoy the experience as much.

It is my favorite museum! If you are a lover of retro and curiosities, this is undoubtedly your place. It is small but very well set

I've been twice to this very nice and small museum, which has different exhibits every year centered on design.

Shouldn't take more than an hour to browse through the museum but the quality of curation is top notch

I was amazed, I went out of curiosity and the amount of objects that there are and that relate to fascinating writings is incredible. It is a super pleasant environment, full of curious details that inspire and motivate you to be creative. I loved the attention from the staff and I particularly fell in love with the area where they have Alice in Wonderland and the glorious little prince. Also, I was able to hallucinate with a musical part, there are instruments such as a gramophone which is to hallucinate, the travel area and what they mean I loved it, I did the tour in an hour, but I wanted to have stayed to detail more. Simply fascinating.

Wonders of yore stack upon each other, walls, racks and even roofs filled with toys particularly but not exclusively from Mexico are exhibited in a whimsical and passionate manner. A very recommended visit indeed.

Wow! For a small museum it for sure left a big impression! This museum is full of color and creativity. It’s very modern and suited for younger generations. I left feeling very inspired to add more colorful art to my house (and my life). I would definitely recommend for people who like to take cool photos.

CLOSED UNTIL 21 MAR 2019 for renovations. Sharing this so other people won't waste their time going there like I did. I'm rating it 5 stars so it won't impact the museum but I didn't get to go in unfortunately.

Thee time i visited it i saw an exposition about Mexico and its relation with colours, it has a lot of old objects, photos, paintings, escultures and media related. It was very interesting and the staff was very nice. It has spaces where the people can interact with the exposition. Very quiet and nice place.

Quirky small museum in one of Mexico's City's most bohemian neighborhoods. Exhibit topics change - but I have a feeling they're always pretty interesting.

The exhibitions change; when I visited, the whole museum was devoted to Mexican soccer/futbol. Everything was in Spanish, but it was quite easy to understand and enjoy the displays. The gift shop is quite good, too.
