Nice Museum in walking distance from town center. Works from local artists. They had an exhibition while we were there and we got to meet and talk to the artist himself. Awesome experience.

The collection is from regional artists and primarily contemporary. Set in a former convent the museum itself is of architectural interest.

It’s a quick (20-40) minute drop by, for 25 pesos, in an interesting building. Nothing overly “wow,” or memorable, but some out-of-the-ordinary artwork. Enjoyed a yesterday and today traveling exhibit. And, there was a somewhat disturbing, but interesting, traveling exhibit by an artist that is...More

This is a good museum to visit if you wish to see a variety of art that you could see at local churches and museums. Ability to read Spanish is helpful. Does not take long to visit.

Both years I visited this museum I enjoyed the exhibits. The building itself is architecturally interesting and the exhibits are well displayed and always interesting.
