This museum for us was a random stop through centro histórico and Im happy we stopped there because it was beautiful and worth the sights. It's free to get in as well. This is something you don't want to pass up in El Centro Histórico.

If you love baroque painting at its best then the Villalpando exhibit is a must. For those familiar with his work you will find paintings that are in private collections as well as others that were unknown to experts. Absolutely magnificent.

Stumbled in on a beautiful fashion show and saw as much of the building as possible and we were delighted! A wonderfully rich 18th century Mexican palace.

We spent 7 weeks tooling around North America last September/October/November, and I am still doing TripAdvisor reviews as I edit my 3,000-odd photos.
