Day 13-We actually go to museums!


Today we actually went to several museums. The days seem to
fly by and we aren’t seeing everything we should. So, today we
went to the Rufino Tamayo Museum of Prehispanic Art,
the Textile Museum of Oaxaca, and the Museum of Oaxacan Painters.
It was great and a visual delight! Here are a few photos from today…

I apologize for not having made notes on
each individual piece I photographed.
We were amazed at the collection
Rufino Tamayo donated to his beloved
state of Oaxaca.
