This museum is located next to the Church of Santo Domingo just a few blocks walking distance from the Zacatecas Cathedral in el Centro. The building is a former monastery and upon entry, visitors find themselves inside the library where 25,000 antique books are displayed in dark wood bookshelves that run floor to ceiling along the entire length of opposite...

Excellent museum with a surprising collection of 20th century art, which consists of Pedro Coronel's work as well as his private collection, with lesser known works from Miró, Chagall, Picasso, Dalí, and many others.

The location is nice and the building is beautifully renovated, but we found the majority of the collection to be average. I would not rate it as one of the top attractions in the city

This is one of the best small museums. It showcases the work of Pedro Coronel, a well known Mexican artist. He was friends with and collected a wide array of "modern" artists, from Kandinsky to Picasso, as well as many lesser known Latino artists. Not to be missed in Zacatecas.

The mask museum is generally favoured out of these two brothers spaces, so I was not expecting the art museum to be so incredible. Pedro Coronel hosts an expansive collection of Miro, Picasso, Goya and even some Dali. Because of the minimal traffic in the museum, it is easy to take your time and appreciate each piece as you are... More

I was hoping to see some of the work by Pedro Coronel, and I got to see some great paintings and sculptures. The house where the museum is located is very nice. And the collection is large, large and eclectic. You can find many pieces, some by Mexican artists some by international artists such as Miró or Picasso, a Kandinsky,... More

This museum is right next to one of the orders churches in the town. The collection is housed in an old, colonial building which is worth the price of the ticket just to see, the collection, mostly European modern art, is very good and well worth seeing.

If you only have limited time in Zacatecas, make sure not to miss this museum. The collection is terrific and the building is also great.

The Pedro Coronel houses a surprising collection of art focusing on the early 20th century with pieces by Picasso, Dali, Chagall, and most notably 42 works by Joan Miro. On a recent weekday around noon we practically had the museum to ourselves, a nice escape from the heat and hustle and bustle outside. Nice giftshop, too.
