  • Great gallery inspired by Don Quixote. 18 different rooms showcasing a huge mix of art styles and influences, from Renaissance to Comic Book, worth the 30 peso's. Great detailed descriptions in each room to help guide you.
  • Pictures, statues, paintings and prints… There are various art forms all depicting the old Spanish icon, don Quijote. It's interesting in its own way, but not worth making an effort to get here.
  • A surprising amount variety! Definitely worth the look.
  • My first time here and I love it, modern and clean place.
  • Not being from this country you don't realize the culture significance Don Quixote had on art across the decades. This really is a unique experience.
