Surrounded by tons of polica with guns ! Get used to it in Mexico ! They are not overly friendly but they have a job to do You ll often find peaceful protests here too Dont worry about them. Take the time to read a lot of the information posted inside its a beautiful old building !

“Nice murals by Orozco !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place is free to just walk inside and take pictures. The paintings by muralist Orozco are well worth photographing. Some of the inner courtyards have orange trees like those I've seen in Seville, Spain. You can even walk into the congressional debating hall-complete with more murals!!!

“See this.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

There are two levels, murals, and various exhibitions of different types. For example, on my visit there was an exhibition of fabrics, clothing, natural dyes, an exhibition of agave and tequila, and an exhibition of paintings.
