Founded in 1986, this museum presents an important collection of Mexican graphic art. The building was part of the grounds of the Santa Veracruz Parish. With the nationalization of church property in 1860, the land was privatized and sold. The current building dates from the 19th century after several modifications. By 1967 the plaza was restored and the search for a site for the collection had begun. The National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature acquired the property and on December 17, 1986 the National Museum of Printmaking was opened. The precinct exhibits an important collection of more than 12,000 works by national and international artists, mainly from the 20th and 21st centuries. This collection includes prints, engravings, original matrices, and editions, making it one of the most important graphic art collections in the country.
