museo franz meyerThe German businessman and banker Franz Mayer lived in Mexico toward the end of his life. Here he gathered an impressive collection of works of art, artifacts, and utilitarian arts from Europe and America. Genres covered by the collection include: utilitarian arts, sumptuary arts, works of art, plumaria, etc. Upon Mr. Mayer's death, his widow and the Mexican State reached an agreement to exhibit the collection that was kept in a mansion on Paseo de la Reforma. The Franz Mayer Museum was created in 1981 when the building of the former Hospital de San Juan de Dios was handed over for restoration. Today several collections are exhibited in the space, and visitors can admire the hospital spaces maintained by the Order of St. John of God from 1604 to 1815.
