The Museum is installed in what was the building of the Hacienda La Noria, whose origins date back to the sixteenth century, although important parts were added to the assembly during the seventeenth, eighteenth and twentieth centuries. The original use of the Hacienda was agricultural and was known by the name of San Juan La Noria Ranch.

The building houses collections of painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, as well as prints from the artist Angelina Beloff and American artist Pablo O’Higgins.

Also, more than 900 archaeological pieces, wood carvings of saints and a collection of folk art from various Mexican states are exposed, as well as objects that formed part of the decoration of the house when Mrs. Olmedo inhabited it, like ivory carvings, porcelain and paintings.

The museum also presents changing exhibitions of important national and international contemporary artists.
