Historic and modern art share this small museum inside a historic mansion. The historic art includes portraits of some wealthy ancient families. The Spanish ladies certainly were no beauties! There were two modern art exhibits, one on toys/magic and the other on women's psyches and...More

The City Museum of Guanajuato has historical religious and secular paintings and three different galleries of contemporary art. I suspect this building might originally have been a convent and it still contains a small and beautiful chapel which contains a triptych illustrating the conquest of...More

It’s a quick (20-40) minute drop by, for 25 pesos, in an interesting building. Nothing overly “wow,” or memorable, but some out-of-the-ordinary artwork.

This is a good museum to visit if you wish to see a variety of art that you could see at local churches and museums. Ability to read Spanish is helpful. Does not take long to visit.

Both years I visited this museum I enjoyed the exhibits. The building itself is architecturally interesting and the exhibits are well displayed and always interesting.

Good museum if you are interested in modern art from the region. The building is attractive and there is a small baroque chapel.

This is a nice combination of an old church and a modern artist. You will see his works as well as religious and cultural paintings from 19 and 20 century. The 'chapel' has a good, big mural, seats, quiet. There is even free banos! But...More
