Arriving on a Tuesday we got free entry and walked straight in. Whilst looking at the ceilings a museum guide came and spoke to us. He then gave us a personal tour and it was clear that this was his passion. (having worked there for 23 years) the guide told us the meanings behind each of the paintings and helped... More

This is clasified as a World Heritage Site, the paintings from Jose Clemente Orozco are just stunning. This is a MUST if visiting the city.

Outside the Hospicio are the most outlandish, bizarre, surreal public benches I have seen. Made of bronze, these are works Guadalajara-born, self-taught creative genius - Alejandro Colunga. After the long walk, I cooled my butt on all his fantastic benches and chairs.

The best place to see incredible frescoes by Orozco. Apart from the frescoes there is not much to be seen!

Yes, the Orozco murals are stunning. But I really enjoyed the two other big, changing exhibits and there were very few people at them. The museum area is very peaceful and great for a break from the busy city. I'm glad we didn't miss it. Need to check backpacks and pay an additional couple dollars if you want to take... More

I'm not so much of an art lover but that might be changing. This old orphanage/church building from years ago is the site of the coolest, darkest art I've ever seen or heard about. Seriously! It's not to be missed! Get a guide to explain it all to you once inside. It could open up a whole new world for... More

If you're a fan of art, this place is a great attraction for you! The murals are breathtaking! Ruben is a great tour leader, his English is very good and he knows the ins and outs of the place since he wrote the book on it!
