The murals are very powerful and are best viewed with a guide. Orozco was an engineer and our guide explained in great deal the perspective of his figures such as a horse's head following you as you move around and the same with the main mural of a Man on Fire. The area is busy but you can linger as... More

The highlight of our trip to Guadalajara was visiting Museum Cabanas. The fresco by Orozco are simply amazing. You must pay for a guide to learn the most about these fabulous paintings. We were also fortunate to see a photo exhibit by Pierre Verger.

We were so pleased to visit this beautiful structure and view the famous Orozco murals in the chapel. The other highlight was the Xavier Mascaro sculptures. What an exciting visit.

Go on a Tuesday for free entrance. The Orozco murals are the one must-see in Guadalajara. The building complex itself is beautiful. Changing exhibits of contemporary art in the rest of the building, including some interesting sculpture on our visit. Located about a ten minute walk from the Cathedral and Degollado theater end of the pedestrian mall.

This is the one place in Guadalajara that I always bring visitors! The Orozco murals are amazing! There are English speaking guides for the murals, which I highly recommend. There are also other rotating exhibits in the museum. Tuesday is a free day.

Without a doubt this museum or center should be on everyone's "must see" list. The German temporary exhibit was outstanding, the Orozco murals were breathtaking, as were the other paintings and art pieces.The architecture itself is well worth the price of tickets. We'll definitely return soon.
