"I am convinced that the best designers in Mexico are in the mountains, in the jungles and on the coasts."

Mission

The Museum of Ethnic Clothing of Mexico, MUREM, collects, preserves, interprets and presents traditional and contemporary clothing, which represents the diverse ethnic cultures of the Mexican Republic. We serve Mexicans and visitors from other countries as a heritage center, with a collection and programming that offer an understanding of the unique skills, art, and identity of the country´s

many ethnic communities.

Our museum

With the world becoming more homogenized, MUREM tells the stories of the people who wore the clothing on view. The museum helps us to better understand the people of Mexico, their traditions and their historic development, and preserves a physical memory of the Mexican ethnic communities that are rapidly changing.
