The first and only wrestling museum in Mexico is on the Tijuana border. In the heart of the Tijuana border, just one kilometer from the United States border port of San Ysidro, is one of the most iconic sites in the city: the Museum of Mexican Wrestling (Mullme), the first and only throughout Mexico dedicated to this sport so deeply rooted in the country’s culture. The museum, which opened its doors on April 29, 2017, brings together more than 6,900 pieces. The private collection of its director Mauricio Pino, originally from Tijuana, a city that has been the birthplace and training of many idols in this sport.
Among the items that can be seen are wrestler masks, capes, original hair, posters, magazines, traditional plastic monkeys, armchairs, key chains, photos, statuettes, original trophies, and many more unthinkable objects. What is also interesting is that the first floor of the building houses the Tijuana Collector’s Museum, which has 12,900 pieces of superheroes, historical trademark products and many more things. But once people get on the second floor, the magic of wrestling takes over the place with enormous murals with the faces of historical wrestlers from Tijuana and the country, as well as a replica of a “ring” at the entrance.
The Mexican Wrestling Museum or as they also call it “MULLME” is located on Seventh Street a few steps from Revolución Avenue, it was born thanks to the idea of Mauricio Limón, owner of the collection and a wrestling fan, with the purpose of spreading the roots of this sport both in Tijuana and in Mexico. The venue houses more than 6,800 pieces such as figures, masks, trophies, magazines, films, seats and even a recreation of a dressing room where the fighters prepared before entering the ring. The museum consists of three levels in which you will find, in addition to historical objects, items from characters such as; Kalimán, Chavo del Ocho, and superheroes. Find upcoming events here.
The MULLME aims to spread the love of wrestling to young people, which is why fairs and wrestling functions are planned to be held in this place to keep this legendary sport alive. Currently the museum’s hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
