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.

If you are in art lover do not miss this museum, located just a block from the main square in Guanajuato. It houses a collection of art inspired by Cervantes and his classic work Don Quixote.

Marvelous, elegant building in the center of Central Historic. Sixteen rooms, hundreds of artists represented and ONE subject. Clearly I need to read the Man of La Macha again. There must be some profound, universal truths in this book to inspire such an outpour of...More

i guess Guanajuato has an obsession with Cervantes and this museum is a testament to their love of the most loved of his characters.

Others have appraised the art gallery. Another thing or event is the Thursday night music show. During the season a musician(s) will perform in the evenings. The theatre is quite small, with maybe 30 very hard chairs. Quality depends on the artist but usually very...More
