Museo Belber Jiménez — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Museum • (Q)
Founded in 2008 by Ellen Belber and Fredrico Jiménez, the museum exhibits the couple’s impressive collection of Méxican gold and silver pieces, jewelry, textiles, and popular art, which spans the three major eras of México’s history — pre-Columbian, colonial, and Independence. But the piece on display that usually excites visitors the most is the necklace that Frida Kahlo wore when she died, a gift from her husband, Diego Rivera.
