Instituto Cultural Cabanas, Guadalajara

4.8
#1 of 79 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.

  • have been visiting this place for many times, The last one was to show my grandkids the wonderful paintings of Clemente Orozco  more »
  • This Place is worth it, this at the end of a macro plaza that continues from Guadalajara Cathedral to the Hospice now called Instituto Cultutral Cabañas, so the road is nice and culminates with this Institute, in its orginenes was hospice, but is part of it Who will learn to do the guided tour with which it counts every day, visiting the paintings and murals of José Clemente Orozco, as the man of Fire in the central dome of the building, as well as the various temporary exhibitions in the various galleries that There are and the various patios, an experience of at least 3 hrs.

  • Few words can define the feeling of being in front of the Cultural Institute Cabañas... From its construction in quarry to its exterior design, townhouse with columns and its capital topped in dome flanked by Windows skylights... It Rivals easily with similar structures found in Europe (Montmartre in Paris, The Capitoline Museum in Rome, The Palace of Orient in Madrid and the Museum of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square in London)... I Recommend that everyone discover their own feeling when visiting.... Impressive
