Is a place with great architecture, permanently can see murals of Jose Clemente Orozco, temporary exhibitions are also very interesting, I recommend that the artists exhibiting are true geniuses, painters, sculptors, architects, designers, visiting the Cabañas Cultural Center is essential to know Guadalajara and the Mexican and universal thought of the early twentieth century, some concepts still apply. It is... More

Our family recently toured Las Cabanas. They offer tours in Spanish AND English. The tour was outstanding. It lasted about an hour. We (me, my wife and our two 19- and 9-year-olds) learned a GREAT deal about Mexico, Guadalajara, Las Cabanas and of course, José Clemente Orozco, who painted more than 50 "frescos" on the walls and ceilings of Las...

What a wonderful visit to see all the cabanas and patios (20+), and architecture, while learning the history of this cultural gem. ...oh yes... José Clemente Orozco's artwork was phenomenal.

Every time I visit Guadalajara for work or to visit family I check out the Instituto Cabanas, the murals are breathtaking.

Tours in both English & Spanish, the best art tour any of us had ever been on. The tour guide was well informed, had interactive exercises to help you understand the murals, and everything was so well kept and preserved. Oh and of course the unbelievable murals!

We opted for a guided tour of the main premises and were told to sit down and wait for a certain time. The Spanish tour ended, but the English tour never began, at the allotted time nobody bothered to show up and check whether there is anyobe interested in the English tour. So boo, Instituto Cabanas, there are English visitors... More

This is one of the best examples of colonial architecture in Guadalajara. Located at the end of "Plaza Tapatía" it is one of the most impressive buildings in the area. It costs around $4-5 USD to go in and you can enjoy the huge rooms, main patio and the "Hombre de Fuego" (man of fire) from José Clemente Orozco, a... More

This is one of the key attractions in central Guadalajara. A one-time orphanage consisting of a succession of beautiful courtyards. The central space has massive murals which are very interesting though not to everyone's taste.
