Also see . . .  Museum of the Estanquillo (in Spanish). In the 19th century, an 'estanquillo' was a type of corner store in Latin America that was well-stocked with small amounts of many items. This museum applies that same idea to the collection of art and cultural objects of Carlos Monsivais. The museum holds more than 20,000 items such as miniatures, dioramas, documents and toys.
