Franz Mayer Collection
The Franz Mayer Museum houses a permanent collection of art integrated by objects that span six centuries of creation and innovation in the areas of art and design, starting from the Fifteenth-Century.
The collection took shape in different stages during the life of Franz Mayer, which were defined by the market situation, his trips and the historical context of the time. His first acquisition was a large group of tiles that belonged to multiple buildings, among them Casa de los Azulejos. These works marked the beginning of a multi-faceted collection of great value, where, in addition to ceramics, the collection of furniture, photography, silver and painting stand out, as well as the wide collection of watches, household goods, textiles and cartography.
