I was on the fence about whether to skip this hacienda as I was on limited time ...after seeing Hacienda Las Trancas (the most special hacienda of them all) followed with a tour of Exhacienda San Gabriel de Barrera I was uncertain if G.B. would be worth it! Boy was I am glad that I listened to my tour guide...this... More

We really enjoyed seeing how the artist and her husband renovated, and thus preserved, this former hacienda. Loved seeing the interesting furnishings. The guide gave us a great tour, explaining everything and answering all our questions.

We enjoyed the Chopin Piano Concert on Sunday very much. We wanted to come back on Monday to see all the treasures in their museum. What a wonderful display of Gene Byron's Art in this private setting of an old, well preserved Hacienda style home. Furniture, precolumbian art, old mexican pottery.....too many items to mention, you can spend hours on... More

This is for lovers of music and beautiful places. The environment and the music are very impressive, separately and together. For a mere 120 pesos (9 dollars) one enjoys a concert by classical musicians who are often first-rate, in a concert space with exceptional acoustics. The small admission price also includes a garden reception after the concert with snacks ("botanas")... More

The family of the late artist, Gene Byron, sponsors a musical presentation every Sunday afternoon at the old Spanish colonial era hacienda which Ms. Bryon and her husband partially restored and converted into their residence many years ago. The musicians are often times world class and perform in a delightful concert hall which is part of the Byron residence. Following... More

The lower rooms and great hall (it really is great) full of antiques and art objects is truly exquisite. The ancient stone architecture really sets off the pieces. The upper hall is a beautiful space and offers just the right atmosphere, lighting and space for optimum viewing the art exhibits. There is a grand piano in the upper hall and... More

My wife and I frequent Guanajuato. One of the highlights is always the chamber music concerts which occur every Sunday at 1:00 PM, at Casa Museo Gene Byron, in Marfil, a suburb of Guanajuato. Casa Museo Gene Byron is a restored hacienda owned by (now deceased) Canadian artist Gene Byron, and her husband, who supports these concerts, and often attends.... More
