Museum of Torture, others (Star Tribune)

New piece, sort of, in the Star Tribune:

In January 2020, I found myself in Mexico City with a few days alone. And every afternoon, I discovered that you can barely walk a block in the mega-city without running into a museum. The exact number is elusive, but according to some estimates Mexico City has more museums than any city in the world. One count has Mexico City at 150, with Paris at 130.

Whatever the number, Mexico City has embraced the museum like no other, with collections of everything from carvings to cultures to acts of cruelty. Here are a few of the museums I saw. Needless to say, there are plenty left for my next trip.
