Kaluz Museum

Located in front of the Alameda Central, the new museum of the Historic Center of Mexico City, the Kaluz Museum, opened its doors with a collection that defines the Mexican through landscapes and portraits, which show the vision of the great artists of Mexico throughout time.

The Kaluz Museum has a fascinating history dating back to the 18th century. Originally, the building served as a rest house for the Augustinian Fathers who traveled from Spain to the Philippines to carry out evangelization work. After Mexico's independence, the building had a series of commercial and residential uses, and gained some notoriety for being the neighborhood where the renowned comedian German Valdez, better known as "Tin-Tan", was born.

In the last years of the 20th century, the building was transformed into the Hotel de Cortés, which remained in operation until 2016. It was in this year that a meticulous remodeling was carried out that gave rise to the Kaluz Museum, a space dedicated to the exhibition of a collection that highlights the identity and cultural richness of Mexico through art.

The reconversion of an old building with such a rich history of cultural heritage into a modern museum is a remarkable example of how the historical legacy of a place can be preserved and revitalized for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations. The Kaluz Museum not only offers an opportunity to appreciate Mexican art, but also allows visitors to immerse themselves in the fascinating history of the building that houses it.
