This is the place where lots of cultural activies are held and where you can take some "culture" classes like dancing, writing, painting, and others. It is a very antique place with a beatiful architecture. Its a nice place, but there's nothing like tourist information for visitors.

I stumbled across this, and was so glad I did! I have a friend named Carmen, so I meandered over to the Virgen del Carmen church to look around and take photos. At some point I became aware that the former convent, connected to the church, is the Casa de Cultura. To begin with, there were lovely sculptures of Don... More

This is a large and superbly built building with a large courtyard facing a portico and a second floor built in pink rocks. The architecture is beautiful and well preserved. At different times there are many cultural activities, painting shows and a great selection of local folk art.

Travel guides suggested that this would be a good place for a tourist to go to see various artisans and cultural exhibits. It is a lovely building, virtually empty when we arrived, which is used for many types of classes in art and music, but does not have anything to offer a tourist who wanders in.

Many of the artists studios are not open all the time but the gift shop is first rate. This is operated by the local government. Artists who have studios or sales space are juried in so the quality of the work is high.

Morelia and Michoacan are very important to Mexico. I think everyone that visits Mexico should visit Morelia and learn how much culture Mexicans have developed.

Oboy, what can I say? We spent several hours just soaking up the beauty and balance of this stone palace that houses the Casa de Cultura in Morelia. You can feel the energy of the Spanish and indigenous craftsmen who carved this palace from stone. There is a perfection to its proportion and design seldom seen anywhere in the world.... More

After reading previous reviews I felt that some posters confused the Casa de la Cultura with the Casa de las Artesanias (museum and shops) which is next to the San Francisco church. The Casa de la Cultura is about a ten or 15 minute walk from the main plaza and cathedral and you need to enter from almost the backside... More

It has a wonderful display of the work of excellent artisans around the state and tells you what town they are from
