The Carlos Pellicer Prehispanic Art Museum is located in what was once the breadbasket of the former Convent of the Nativity, the majestic monastery in the City of Tepoztlan.
Opened on July 24, 1965 by the then former President of the Republic, Adolfo Lopez Mateos, the Carlos Pellicer Prehispanic Art Museum houses the archaeological collection of the famous Tabasco poet Carlos Pellicer Camara (1897-1977) donated by him to the town of Tepoztlan in 1965.
Upon entering the museum, on the right side, we can see a map of Mexico where the pre-Hispanic cultures flourished are marked, thus, allowing us to locate the place of origin of over a thousand archaeological pieces from pre-columbian cultures such as the Maya, Totonac, Mexica, Teotihuacan, Zapotec, Olmec, Tlatilco, the Coast of Colima, and Tepoztlan.
Open all year from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission: $ 10 pesos.
