This is the one place in Guadalajara that I always bring visitors! The Orozco murals are amazing! There are English speaking guides for the murals, which I highly recommend. There are also other rotating exhibits in the museum. Tuesday is a free day.

Without a doubt this museum or center should be on everyone's "must see" list. The German temporary exhibit was outstanding, the Orozco murals were breathtaking, as were the other paintings and art pieces.The architecture itself is well worth the price of tickets. We'll definitely return soon.

I learned a lot about Jose Clemente Orozco. His art is amazing. Definitely recommend to take a guided tour. Our bilingual tour guide was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make this experience a very educational and fun for us. He was very appreciative of the tip we gave him.

This is a must when you visit Guadalajara, apart from being a UNESCO world heritage site, has a collection of murals of José Clemente Orozco, guided visit recommended to truly appreciate the richness of the site in all aspects

The former Hospicio Cabañas is a human world heritage site. There you can admire many frescoes from José Clemente Orozco, along with the magnificent architecture of the Hospicio, as well as temporary exhibitions from world artists. No wonder it's called by many people "the Sistine Chapel of America".

It's amazing. You won't regret. Take a tour with the personal of the museum to hear the story of the place. You have to pay a ticket to enter, but the tour is free.

Absolutely beautiful! If u can grab a tour, my Spanish is terrible but from what i understood there is alot of symbolism and history depicted here. There were english tours, we just didnt get the timing right (waited for 30min and still didnt start in english). But well worth it
