Lovely building and exhibits. There is a paid entrance and if you wish to take photos you must pay a camera fee. Orozco murals are absolutely stunning.

Art displayed in different areas of the historic orphanage building. Wondering bronze sculptures outside, and murals in the cathedral. A nice walk to get there too, passing many lovely buildings and sculptures.
