The big event in this building are the historical murals on the second floor. There is a placque explaining each. There is good security here as well as nice bathrooms.

This place is highly recommended. Not only does the building has the authentic look, but outside they have the dancing in the streets, Old traditional dancers and singers make this place a great atmosphere.

The building is open all day and into the evening to wander the second floor of the government building. Art representing the Mayan struggles under Spanish colonialism.

I was not impressed by the artwork in the Palacio Municipal. It seemed to be political, celebrating the Mexican Revolution with disturbing images. However, there is a free baño inside.

Easy to find off the main square - although the security guards looked intimidating - a quick smile and hello and you are in. Up into the second floor via a sweeping central stair case off the open courtyard there is a great vista over...More
