The Basics

Named for a 19th-century Mexican sculptor of the same name, Pantaleón Panduro Museum provides an impressive introduction to the glorious ceramics of Mexico. Guided tours are available at the museum—for which you should tip—while travelers short on time may prefer the convenience of pre-arranged, multi-destination tours. These often provide further insight into the arts-and-crafts haven of Tlaquepaque itself and often pass by the Parroquia de San Pedro Apostol and El Parián, as well as the museum.
