We went to this museum with few expectations and we're treated to a private tour of the museum by it's owner. He even made us espressos and gave us a tour of his upstairs loft. Wacky and worth it.

This small "museum" is an incredibly charming place with a private collection of mechanical objects from clocks to gramophones. The staff is so welcoming and shows you how everything works. It's a must see in Mexico City!

weekends to listen to live music and where some of the
best coffee shops, restaurants and bookstores satisfy
