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.

I was hesitant to go to a museum where there would be nothing but images of Don Quixote, but in fact, it was way beyond my expectations. There was quite a variety of art, some of it quite modern, others, more classic. What struck me most was that there were works by significant international artists. There were works by Robert Motherwell, Joseph Beuys, and Kokoschka, but the best piece was by Gabriel Flores which took up 3 sides of a room. Quite an impressive piece. It's located in the center of town, and when you're done you can have a nice meal at La Capellini a few doors down.

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.

For fans of Don Quixote, this is a "must see" place. Centrally located within Guanajuato, it is an excellent place to see various artists' interpretation of Don Quixote and his epic journeys -- from classical, somewhat realistic views to contemporary, edgy views. These interpretations cause you to reflect on your thoughts of Don Quixote or noble, but hopeless, "knightly" pursuits. The building itself is beautiful and the exhibits spread out enough to manage the flow of people. There is also a coffee bar and place to sit for a bit of relaxation. They also have a nice bookshop to peruse.

This museo has great temporary exhibits and frequent gallery openings. A monthly calendar is posted on the front wall of the building. The coffee shop inside is on the expensive side but worth it!
