Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian, Leon

4.6
Observe colonial and contemporary art in a complex of five colonial-era buildings connected together at Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian. The art collection consists mostly of Latin American art, though some sculptures and paintings in the collection were created by European artists. Hire an English-speaking guide to take you through the exhibits and talk you through the pieces and the artists’ stories. The standing collection is impressive on its own, but the museum also changes out exhibits regularly.

  • Exceptional art collection that is very diverse. Incredible garden setting for the galleries. Prepare to spend a few hours or visit twice.
  • Really neat museum. Especially the building itself. The art ranges from very bad to really great :)
  • The most impressive gallery I have ever seen - just the building itself is breathtaking. Very unique collection of latin-american art.
  • The museum is centrally located and is surprising large (spread across two buildings) for a small town like Leon. Collections are quite various and the building is very pretty with water fountains in most of the rooms to keep the temperature cool. Unfortunately , photos are not permitted in the museum.
  • Surprising and outstanding collection of art that goes on and on and on. The city should be shouting from the rooftops about this collection.
