Whilst exploring the city you won't want to miss the huge range of excellent Oaxaca museums and art galleries which can enhance your understanding of Oaxaca culture and the city's thriving arts scene. What makes Oaxaca museums so memorable is the special emphasis put on raising awareness about the traditions, history and crafts of the region's many indigenous communities. The 16 different ethnic groups which reside in the province add a special flavour to the culture which does not become convoluted even in the city centre, where all origins, languages and beliefs are embraced as part of the complex cultural puzzle which makes Oaxaca what it is today.
