Biblioteca Miguel Lerdo de Tejada
Housed in a former 18th century baroque church, the Biblioteca Miguel Lerdo de Tejada provides access to important financial and economic records as well as various historical newspapers. The creative gem of the space is the magnificently psychedelic mural, La Revolución y los Elementos by Vlady (aka Vladimir Víktorovich Kibálchich Rusakov), which surrounds the reading room celebrating the revolutionary spirit. Vlady began painting the piece in 1972 after the library moved to the chapel of the former oratory of San Felipe Neri and he finished the elaborate work in 1982.

Museo Foro Valparaiso (Valparaiso Forum Museum)
The Museo Foro Valparaiso occupies an architecturally important baroque building by Francisco Antonio Guerrero y Torres in Mexico City’s historic center. The focus of our visit will be the library and archives of this space which houses treasures by Siqueiros, Rivera, Kahlo, Orozco, Velasco, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo and others.

Museo del Estanquillo
Carlos Monsiváis opened his collection to the public with the founding of Museo del Estanquillo in 2006. The museum showcases a wide range of mediums and formats including historical documents, paintings, photographs, toys, scores, caricatures, models, and much more. The name is inspired by small shops popular in the 19th-early 20th century called estanquillos where shoppers could find a vast diversity of objects to procure.
