  • Set in a wonderful colonial building the exhibit we saw was wonderful. Exploring the tragedies of the Guatemalan uprising of the 80s. This is a free museum with rotating exhibits.

  • Wonderful photography exhibits that change throughout the year. The gallery is a traditional colonial building.
  • They had a very beautiful photo exhibition at the time I visited.
  • Nice colonial building housing a small photo gallery. Entrance is free, donations welcomed. The exhibition I saw was quite moving.
  • The place is very nice and has good expositions nevertheless it lacks in good illumination of the artwork with sometimes makes it difficult to appreciate each piece. Aside from they it has a nice view and offers diverse workshops.
