“Wonderful Wonderful Museum Not to Be Missed”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Many of the artists who painted Don Quixote are presented here and it is great fun to look at the different interpretations. One of the most interesting are 2 rooms of Orlando's incredible art work. Discounts offered for senior Dif cards (Inapan)

“Lots of Don Quixote”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The museum's large collection is amost entirely of representations of the great Spanish archetypal character. Definitely a unique experience for us. The character seems at home in GTO.

“If Don Quixote is your thing, this is the place for you!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We visited this museum as part of a tour of the fascinating city of Guanajuato. It is full of every possible representation of Don Quixote in every medium: painting, sculpture, porcelains, murals. It is good to get a guide to here the fascinating story of how the museum and the collection came to be here in Mexico. Fun for art lovers.

“Not a place for us”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We were here with our 15 year old. This museum is so pretty on the outside, but inside it just has pictures and statues of every conceivable idea of Don Quixote. This is fine if you are an artsy type but we did not love it.
