A huge highlight!
Feb 2020
Three GREAT exhibits with amazing art work! What a collection. Orozco, Rivera and Siqueiros was one exhibit we both thought was remarkable. Rebel Diamonds from the Sun the second that really takes a wonderful look at Chicano and Latin art. Lastly, the Jose Clemente Orozco murals are fantastic! I don't miss place!

Interesting architecture, The changing collection is a showcase of the rich culture of the State of Jalisco

I have visited several times as the Collection changes but the two works by Mtro. José Clemente Orozco are worth seeing in and of themselves

Nice, but authoritarian.... Great museum shop, though.

Beautiful Orozco mural, but a guard that says you can't wear sun glasses in the facility. And then someone that says you have to leave your hat at the desk? What tha? This isn't a papal visitation, right?
Very nice museum shop, however - lots of hard to find books on Mexican artists, high quality wares, the kinds of things you'd see at a MOMA shop...

A truly beautiful university
May 2018 • Friends
Any traveler in Mexico will be surprised by the beauty of many educational institutions, partly because they are housed in venerable colonial buildings, such as Guanajuato University. This University is not so old, even though the establishment of the university by the Spanish crown dates from 17th century..The building si impressive from all four sides.

Go there to see the murals. Well worth a visit for that alone. There are also changing exhibits from various artists. Wasn’t that impressed with the one that is there now, but wait a while and it will change.

Little gem!

This impressive building is located right in front of the best gothic cathedral in Mexico. You must see both.
The architecture of this building is impressive enough, but inside is a small, tasteful art museum. Entrance is free. There were 3 or 4 exhibit rooms - paintings and pencil drawings, abstract modern art, portraits, and some science art exhibits. The theater dome has some very impressive murals. In the hallway outside, portraits of the university's founders line the wall. Ornate chandeliers hang from the ceilings.
This little museum is free to enter and takes no more than an hour to walk through. There are clean, nice restrooms inside as well. Stop by on your way to the cathedral behind it.

How fabulous to see the role that a great University can play in an important city like Guadalajara. So much centre around the university and the 31st film festival returned to its original home and visitors get a chance to witness the impact this educational institution has had and is having....very inspiring!
