Once the governor's mansion, this large structure now serves as a museum with exhibits on the art and history of the region, specifically the work of Goitia, a famous local painter from the early 1900s.

This museum was an old mansion that has since been converted into a museum. There were some of the most morbid works of art I've seen but beautiful nonetheless!!

I'm not sure how to rate this museum as art preferences are so subjective, but given the art collection, the historic building, and the garden setting, I think it's a 3.5 - 4. The Goitia Museum is easily accessed and worth a peek if you...More

This museum had very good paintings by Francisco Goitia and other famous painters. One of my favorite Goitia paintings was on display "El Ahorcado". Unfortunately no photos are allowed inside, however i still recommend this museum if your in Zacatecas.

This lovely old mansion that has been converted into a museum is dedicated to Zacatecan artists with occasional exhibits by other Mexican artists. On two floors connected by a lovely sweeping staircase, the amazing work of Francisco Goitia will certainly catch your eye, as well...More

The temporary exposition, overexposed and overly edited photographs, was worthless trash. Too expensive for the contents, and didn't provide discount for...More

I liked the displays of his early works, but the later works left me cold. It is a pity that he former Governor's Mansion they are displayed in has been chopped up with no consideration given to the original architecture.

If you have an interest in abstract painting and sculpture, give this museum a try. The building and exhibit layout is interesting and inventive as well.

I agree with the prior review. This is a wonderful little museum with very interesting art by a number of artists, not just Goitia. It is just slightly off the beaten path at the outer edge of the historic district but worth the few minutes...More
