MUJAM Toy Museum in Mexico City
Julie Schwietert Collazo
Features
Great value, Quirky/offbeat, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

Roberto Shimizu, Sr., a first-generation Japanese-Mexican, began collecting toys at an early age—and never stopped. The result is this endearing museum, called MUJAM for short, crammed full of the objects he's acquired over decades of enthusiastic buying and trading. There are action figures, cars, and trains; lucha libre masks and Legos; pinball machines and collectible cards; and much, much more. In addition to the museum's permanent and temporary exhibits, Shimizu and his son, Roberto Shimizu, Jr., and the rest of the MUJAM team host all sorts of musical and cultural performances, workshops, swap meets, and regular street art events. The exterior of the museum is covered with murals by local and international street artists; the most charming one is of Shimizu, Sr., in a whimsical car, his playful spirit evident.
