No performances happening while I was in town but there was some displays for day of the dead outside which was nice. The architecture is nice and is right across from the main Jardin so you will see it at some point during your stay without going out of your way.

My wife and I went to several performances in the Teatro Juarez during Cervantino. We sat in several different areas of the theater and the acoustics were excellent in all the seats. It is hard not to stare around at the interior of the theater, that presents new details with every look. Awe inspiring to be inside looking around.

This marvelous and very well kept theater is a must. Built in the heydays of the silver mining in the region, it was a gathering point for Guanajuatos high society. If you are lucky you can get a tour guided by Sr. Ascencion Guerra who brings the theater back to life.

Very nice theatre in university town. Would have been great to see a performance as the sound is very good. I enjoyed the quick tour to see it. Go in and have a look.

The theater was built by my great grandfather who was the Governor of Guanajuato. The front of this building and the interior of the theater are amazingly well kept. All sorts of events are constantly programmed such as classical music concerts, plays, etc. It is a very important site for local culture

The Juarez is now over a hundred years old and has been well maintained. Get a ticket for an orchestra concert during Cervantino to see the pretty interior and hear the clear acoustic, as the Juarez is dark much of the year.

Beautiful theater... Was not able to go inside due to time constraints. However the amazing exterior is well worth giving it a moment to take in.

Both the front of this building and the interior of the theater are beautiful. It is well worth the small cost to step inside. Better yet try to attend a concert there. I just returned from a government sponsored free orchestra concert. The place was packed and there were very few tourists. The audience loved the performance.
