The place consists only of a few rooms surrounding a little courtyard but when I went they had interesting exhibitions on display. Photography or art lovers shouldn't miss this place. It's free anyway and just comes with a small donation box.

There are about 4 different galleries. Each one is unique and represents Mexico in a way that many haven’t seen or learned about. The photos are magnificent! Free entrance and sometimes the artists are there. I believe that they offer classes too... one of the...More
