“Nice murals by Orozco !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place is free to just walk inside and take pictures. The paintings by muralist Orozco are well worth photographing. Some of the inner courtyards have orange trees like those I've seen in Seville, Spain. You can even walk into the congressional debating hall-complete with more murals!!!

What a wonderful gem of a place to keep open to the people and tourist, there's two beautiful murals by Orozco, a museum and your free to walk about the palace.

“See this.”

There are two levels, murals, and various exhibitions of different types. For example, on my visit there was an exhibition of fabrics, clothing, natural dyes, an exhibition of agave and tequila, and an exhibition of paintings.

We only saw the outside of the building wich dates back to the 1800's. It's old and it's nice for picture taking other than that not much.....
