Gorgeous building inside and out. Great paintings by Jose Clemente Orozco. Do not miss it! Hopefully there will be a docent who can explain the meaning behind the stunning paintings when you go. Learning about the art made for a wonderful experience for us.

You get to see one of the most famous frescoes by José Clemente Orozco. The congress hall is a must see inside. There’s also an interactive museum of the history of the city.
