Probably our favorite art thing we did in GTO. Lots of new surprizes and looking at something and saying "cool". If you enjoy art that makes you think a bit, check it out.

This is a unique museum that offers a little bit of Cervantes, Quixote, interior architecture and design and a coffee shop. We wandered through both floors. Interesting, but if you have other priorities, I would skip this place.

A fabulous museum! Of course there are many pieces you'd expect to see, but it also includes some avant-garde pieces as well. It's exciting to see sculpture, painting and performing arts in this lovely location. Highly recommended.

This pretty museum has many paintings of Don Quixote, some better than others. More interesting are the various Quixote printings in many languages from several centuries. This museum is located in a well preserved old residence. The day I visited the ticket was free! Well...More

The collection of art and artifacts is quite significant. Tours are free on Tuesdays. Be aware that the floors are uneven and buckle in many places. You will need to be able to negotiate stars as there are no passages that don't require you to...More

the reach of Cervantes is deep. This museum does not disappoint and contains beautiful work by artists touched by the character Don Quixote.

Who knew DQ could be depicted in so many ways, by so many people, for so many years. The scope and quality of the artwork of the museum is impressive. This was my favorite museum in Guanajuato.

Its a little tough to visit because its at the entrance of one of the main tunels. You either have to have a taxi drop you off or stop off at the shuttle.
