“Nice place, but nothing going on here on the day we visited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Nice place, well preserved. However, did not get to see anything that day as they were preparing for a concert for the Mexican President; so no other Exhibits were going on.

“Royal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

A very majestic building of huge proportions offers the works of Orosco at his finest. Many foreign exhibits are show here as well. It can take a few visits to see it all.

“Historic orphanage beautifully refurbished”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Beautiful old building with stunning murals and lovely patios. A very nice place to wander. The tour guide was a little long-winded, but you can duck in and out of the tour.

“Interesting, though limited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

the murals are certainly the star of the show at this museum. Bring alone your student ID for a hefty discount! much of the exhibits seemed to be closed, but the few that were open were very interesting and well planned.

“Wonderful Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The museum offers a great variety of murals and other exhibits, you can easily spend 2 hours there. It is not boring at all because you can admire the murals on the roof. I really enjoyed the museum; I would definitely recommend a visit.
