At least that is what I was able to ascertain from the door guard today with my mediocre Spanish and just wanted to pass it along. Suggest checking before going.

Went to see the paintings of Villalpando but found they only had nativity scenes on display made by artisans, they were nice but not what we are interested in so wasted trip and since I've been to this location before, nothing new.

A beautiful museum on the doorstep of the hectic Avenue Francisco I Madero. Beautiful artworks on display and free entry. Well worth a visit.

This museum is located in Historic District of Mexico City. It has temporary exposition of different artists all of which are free! Just to go inside of the building is worth the visit it was restored a while ago but it has been preserved beautifully.

This museum for us was a random stop through centro histórico and Im happy we stopped there because it was beautiful and worth the sights. It's free to get in as well. This is something you don't want to pass up in El Centro Histórico.

If you love baroque painting at its best then the Villalpando exhibit is a must. For those familiar with his work you will find paintings that are in private collections as well as others that were unknown to experts. Absolutely magnificent.
