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 art work. Plus there is a lovely open court yard in the middle with a coffee shop and a grand piano and sometimes people play.
Oh, Gto. also has an entire DQ festival once a year.

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 good. Worth at least a query. The 1 show I went to was excellent. Admission fee is very modest.

This museum features a broad range of pieces of art (mostly paintings and ceramics) inspired by the Cervantes's story of Don Quixote. The quality of the works is outstanding, even surprising. It is not have all that much info about Cervantes himself.

Impressive exhibit! Self explanatory. Easy to follow. We did the exhibit in less than 2 hours. It was down the street form el Teatro Juarez.
