Museum of Tequila and Mezcal (Museo del Tequila y el Mezcal) Tours

The Museum of Tequila and Mezcal—or Museo del Tequila y el Mezcal (MUTEM)—offers visitors a lesson in the history, production and significance of Mexico’s much-loved, agave-based spirit, with optional tastings included. Located in the historic and frequently visited Plaza Garibaldi, the museum features a permanent exhibit hall on the first floor showcasing, step-by-step, the tequila and mezcal production process, from the selection of agave varieties to distillation.

The museum also covers Mexican culture and history, with exhibits going into detail on the site’s location, known as the center of los mariachi, and national pop culture. Visitors will have the chance to sample multiple tequila and mezcal varieties, including silver, reposado and añejo tequila, and visit the top-floor restaurant and bar, which serves its selection of Mexican dishes with a view overlooking Plaza Garibaldi, the Mexico City Cathedral and Torre Latinoamericana.

Practical Info

The Museum of Tequila and Mezcal is located in Plaza Garibaldi, one of the most traditional parts of Mexico City. It is open daily from 11am to 10pm (and until midnight on weekends). It is possible to purchase agave, tequila and mezcal products from the museum gift shop. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included with most tours, but the area can also be reached via metro, with access from Metro Garibaldi station.
