the reach of Cervantes is deep. This museum does not disappoint and contains beautiful work by artists touched by the character Don Quixote.

Who knew DQ could be depicted in so many ways, by so many people, for so many years. The scope and quality of the artwork of the museum is impressive. This was my favorite museum in Guanajuato.

Only 30 pesos but the art isn't great. Not a must do, esp. if you haven't read Quixote. It's a collection of fan art, basically.
