... and garden. Beautifully presented pieces with an interesting permanent collection. Goitia, a fin de siecle artist, had a very dark vision. Some interesting pieces to be sure.

I'm not sure how to rate this museum as art preferences are so subjective, but given the art collection, the historic building, and the garden setting, I think it's a 3.5 - 4. The Goitia Museum is easily accessed and worth a peek if you...More

This museum had very good paintings by Francisco Goitia and other famous painters. One of my favorite Goitia paintings was on display "El Ahorcado". Unfortunately no photos are allowed inside, however i still recommend this museum if your in Zacatecas.

I liked the displays of his early works, but the later works left me cold. It is a pity that he former Governor's Mansion they are displayed in has been chopped up with no consideration given to the original architecture.

If you have an interest in abstract painting and sculpture, give this museum a try. The building and exhibit layout is interesting and inventive as well.
