Like a miniature version of Frida Kahlo's house. Well-preserved home on a beautiful lot with a garden and one floor of artwork by the house's owners. Knick-knacks are also distributed throughout the small home. Admission fee is reasonable and Spanish-speaking guide available. Unfortunately, the home...More

Located up a hill off Calle Pastita, this museum is worth the trek from the Centro. It is the home of two famous artists of Guanajuato, and houses their wonderfully curated personal collections, their own artwork, a beautiful little garden, and an exhibit of contemporary...More

Before you go, visit the Museo del Pueblo to see the murals by Morena. This museum is his and his wife's house. Very quiet, with a nice garden. Lots of artwork inside the house and also some fascinating pre-hispanic sculptures in the garden. The guide...More

This was one of the most well organized museums/houses we have been to. Every little attention to detail was great. The house is wonderful, and the artwork of the two is spectacular. Many of Chavez Morado's pieces are lithographs because the originals are in the...More

Out-of-way but so worth the trip. Art collection from their travels plus their own work - Olga's is more approachable perhaps, his is political. A lot of his work is in other places in GTO so helpful to get some context.
