A painter named Filemon Santiago was on exhibit and the cost was free. Santiago's work was almost appealing as Diego Rivera is too me, so I was pleasantly surprised by our visit. The museum is local to the Zocolo center and can be reached by...More

This museum is housed in a colonial building that dates back to around 1700. Although the rooms have been heavily modified in their transition into galleries you get a strong sense of the building's heritage. Check out the welded iron railings upstairs in particular. The...More

Depends on the exhibit, the building and architecture is very nice. Tamayo is amazing but other exhibits can be avoided.
