The visit is worth it for just the fabulous Orozco murals. When we visited there were 3 special exhibits, all excellent. Most noteworthy were the photographs of Toni Catany. Outstanding!

This repurposed building houses art exhibits that periodically change. In the past few months I've seen several excellent contemporary art exhibits.

Well, I'm not trained in art, but I do enjoy viewing and contemplating art. I think this only took me about an hour to go through. It's not huge, in other words. But the choice of art was interesting and thought-provoking. One of the rooms...More

There is always something interesting to see at this compact museum that is part of the University and the Orozco murals never disappoint.

I find this a very average art museum. There are not many exhibitions and nothing in particular very memorable except the giant bronze face sculpture right outside the museum. Visitors are not allowed to carry backpacks into the museum and have to store them at...More

Not a big collection but a good one, if you're in to contemporary art (for there's not much here that isn't abstract), with fine traveling exhibits on display on a regular basis.

This was a really neat art museum. It has murals from Orozco and a variety of beautiful pieces of art. It only takes about 1-2 hours to see all of it.

The building itself is very nice both inside and out. When I visited in October 2016 it had two fantastic exhibitions. One was about the works of fashion designer Balenciaga. Even though I am not a fashionista I enjoyed the exhibit with its many dresses...More
