Did you know that Mexico City is the city with the most museums in the world? During our month and a week in the capital of Mexico, I visited many of these museums and most of them have interesting objects and cultural history. Here are pictures of museum artifacts that amused and inspired me.

Printmaking and stencils are a part of Mexico’s culture. These roller stencils are of particular interest to me.
Fine metal sheet work…
…and cut out paper figures!
Masks and shields covered in tiny pieces of blue green shell:
This guitar instrument made from an armadillo’s shell:
Old coins that are not completely round in shape:
Colourful ceramic tiles! I want a kitchen tiled in these:
I think these are the scales of an alligator:
These knives are not works of art, they were used in sacrificial rituals. A funny looking dagger to murder someone with!?
