If you are walking from the Centro to say the Alhondiga, this very nice little museum is on the way and you should devote some time to it: Wonderful murals by Chavez Morado, pottery, miniatures, oils and more. The entrance fee is a very reasonable 20 pesos. Also along the Calle Positos is Diego Rivera's house, and museum, which is... More

Incredible collection of miniature toys. No need for a translator. I didn't experience my normal "museum fatigue" in this place. It was delightful.

Walking in I didn't know what to expect. I thought it was going to be a small museum, but it turned out that it had 3 floors of absolutely beautiful paintings and photographs. It is an awesome museum to visit to get a feel for the local culture and heart warming Guanajuatenses.

Hard to miss, right next to the University steps, the City Museum has an small but representative selection of Mexican art. Good introduciton to local talent Hermenegildo Bustos (a revelation for me).
