At the historic center of Antigua, not far from the "Parque Central " and almost in front of the ruins of the old "Catedral de Santiago", you will find a beautiful baroque building. It housed, from 1675 to 1773, the third oldest university of the Americas, the "Universidad de San Carlos de Borromeo". After the earthquakes of 1773, everything moved to the new capital - "La Nueva Guatemala de la Asunción" (todays "Ciudad de Guatemala") and the building had different uses along the centuries. Finally, from 1936 onwards, it houses the "Museo de Arte Colonial". A noble use for such an important and historic construction. Visit the museum, with its interesting collections of paintings, sculptures and furniture from the 16th to the 18th centuries. But, principally, enjoy the colonial building, with its beautiful courtyard, central fountain, perfect arches, impressive columns and exhibitions galleries. A must visit to all those interested in art and architecture! Enjoy!

I was taken by surprise by the serenity of this museum. The galleries are laid out with exceptional care . One can see the intense style of colonial Hispanic artist and feel the heavy effect of the picture upon the viewer. Included in the museum is a life size mock-up of the church school classrooms that were also housed here.This is a very enlightening view into Colonial Antigua

I have always been partial to old Latin American ecclesiastical art, and this is probably the primo collection of this type of material in Antigua.

It is worth walking around to see the lovely architecture. The fountain in the courtyard is very relaxing to sit by and take a break from touring.
