Historic and modern art share this small museum inside a historic mansion. The historic art includes portraits of some wealthy ancient families. The Spanish ladies certainly were no beauties! There were two modern art exhibits, one on toys/magic and the other on women's psyches and...More

This is a nice combination of an old church and a modern artist. You will see his works as well as religious and cultural paintings from 19 and 20 century. The 'chapel' has a good, big mural, seats, quiet. There is even free banos! But...More

We were thoroughly impressed by the diversity of artwork on display from 3 contemporary Mexican artists from Oaxaca. Well worth the time.
