  • This is an international art collection crossing the centuries of all things Don Quixote; it is housed in a beautiful building and there was little or no admission fee. The anti-war painting on the ground floor rivals Guernica in its emotional impact. This is a university town worth visiting and this museum is its crown jewel.
  • A must in the museums of Guanajuato, perfect to meet Cervantes and his work, there are performances by various artists. It is a small museum, inside there is a cafeteria with a very good coffee.

  • Everything is amazing, really worth visiting the Museum, have guides and trained staff to answer your questions. I would put him five stars but store prices seemed to me something expensive.
