Instituto Cultural Cabanas, Guadalajara

4.8
#1 of 71 in Museums in Jalisco
Named a World Heritage Site in 1997, Instituto Cultural Cabanas was built in the 19th-century as refuge for at-risk people. The building was unique at the time in its attempt to accommodate these people--from the handicapped to the orphaned. Designed to be on one level for ease of movement for its occupants, the complex was founded in 1791. Today you can wander the courtyards and corridors, taking in some of the finest examples of Mexican art in murals painted by José Clemente Orozco.

  • You can't go to Guadalajara and not to know this place. We travel with 3 small children and interested very much, especially the murals and the interactive Hall of Siqueiros. Highly recommended. If you have little time alone visit the murals and the permanent exhibits.

  • It is a place that has an impressive structure, most of 20 halls of art exhibitions that are worth visiting. They should come is an evening that is worth very good pictures. You pay 30 pesos in order to use your camera inside. If you go with children and want something different, it is very appropriate.
