Translated from the language of the ancient peoples who inhabited Mexico many centuries ago, Tlaquepaque means "lying on clay." Clay is everywhere in the city: underfoot, on the walls of buildings, on store shelves and tables in cafes, and even in the most respectable restaurants. Of course, clay is in the form of bricks in buildings and craftsmanship.

Most of the clay is located in the Museo Regional de la Ceramica, which also serves as a local history museum.

The museum opened in 1954, but its collection began to be assembled much earlier. Just imagine, all these pots, plates, vases and jugs are made by human hands, burned in a furnace at high temperature, and then artfully decorated. That's so great!

The museum's collection consists mainly of products from the 18th and 19th centuries. Passing from hall to hall, admiring the products, studying them, you can even identify elements of various techniques. Some products belonged to more than one generation of artisans. Among such masters are the families of Barnabe, Chimon, Pajarito, and Panduro.

Ceramics is a feature, a business card of Tlaquepaque. It was used both for the development of fine motor skills and also for interior decoration. So, time after time, product after product, clay pots and plates covered the kitchens of local houses. Ceramic dishes hung on the walls of the kitchen. Then they gradually “crept” into the living rooms and throughout the house. The museum displays the interiors of the houses of Tlaquepaque residents of that time.

From the smallest coffee cups to huge trays and deep vases. The Regional Ceramic Museum has a very large collection of products. Although it is not the largest in Mexico. Be sure to visit this museum. Ceramics is an important part of the history and life of the city. It is very much appreciated there.
