Kill two birds with one stone and visit the Rectoria of the University of Guadalajara and the Cathedral immediately behind. The entry is free and there are many murals by Orozco to see and a museum and display of work by national artists etc. it is a short distance from the center of town.

We are staying near Templo Expiatoria and this building so dropped in. No charge. The Orozco murals are very nice in the little theater. The building is lovely but the art museum is nothing special - if there was a charge I would say don't bother but if you are visiting Templo Expiatoria then go for it. However, the main part of the museum is a temporary exhibit so a lot depends on who the exhibit is featuring. Right now it is Hugo Pérez Farías and I did not care for his work much but you can google him and see if he is your cup of tea.

Partially closed. Mostly local artsits. Limited hours.
SECURITY ALERT in Guadalajara - Street shootings, kidnappings, drug planting at the ariport. If unnecessary, DON'T TRAVEL TO GUADALAJARA.

It is just a piece of architecture that is striking, inside and out. It is even more pretty at night ,with the Expiatorio looming in the background.

Walk the area, pretty and drop in. A wonderful sample of the "maestro"'s art. The murals are in something called the "paraninfo", a spacious room in the form of an auditorium. Very worth thr visit.
