This is a large and superbly built building with a large courtyard facing a portico and a second floor built in pink rocks. The architecture is beautiful and well preserved. At different times there are many cultural activities, painting shows and a great selection of local folk art.

Travel guides suggested that this would be a good place for a tourist to go to see various artisans and cultural exhibits. It is a lovely building, virtually empty when we arrived, which is used for many types of classes in art and music, but does not have anything to offer a tourist who wanders in.

Many of the artists studios are not open all the time but the gift shop is first rate. This is operated by the local government. Artists who have studios or sales space are juried in so the quality of the work is high.

Morelia and Michoacan are very important to Mexico. I think everyone that visits Mexico should visit Morelia and learn how much culture Mexicans have developed.

Oboy, what can I say? We spent several hours just soaking up the beauty and balance of this stone palace that houses the Casa de Cultura in Morelia. You can feel the energy of the Spanish and indigenous craftsmen who carved this palace from stone. There is a perfection to its proportion and design seldom seen anywhere in the world.... More

After reading previous reviews I felt that some posters confused the Casa de la Cultura with the Casa de las Artesanias (museum and shops) which is next to the San Francisco church. The Casa de la Cultura is about a ten or 15 minute walk from the main plaza and cathedral and you need to enter from almost the backside... More

I love this place. It is like a museum that holds a collection of the best of the best Michoacán has to offer in the way of artesanias. But do not expect to get a bargain. Pay what they ask and take home the real thing. Or do like I do, and just look and enjoy.

At the Casa de Cultura you can learn to dance, play guitar, play the piano, paint, draw, or learn several other instruments. My girlfriend is currently taking drawing classes with Maestro - Prado Velazquez. She is having a wonderful time and I am so amazed and impressed with the multitude of children and adults who come there to learn and... More
