The building itself is worth a visit but Silva's sculptures are amazing - and evocative of other, ancient Mexican sculpture and ruins. A must to visit in this marvellous city.

Excellent sculpture museum of a renowned regional sculptor! Really cool to see a lot of sculptures with Native Indigenous Mexican influence!

I had never even heard of sculptor Federico Silva until I walked into this museum, located in exquisitely restored former school and hospital. I particularly enjoyed the juxtaposition of the classic lines of the building with the looming modernity of Silva's creations.

The museum's dedicated to sculpture (or it was when I visited) and it's quite impressive. The first floor is occupied by the concrete works of Silva, and the upstairs had a beautiful exhibit of metal sculptures that complimented Silva's works nicely.
