The Man on Fire ceiling painting is worth the price of admission, which is really inexpensive. The is a lot to see within this old historical building. Just browse around room to room and section to section, there is plenty to see.

Orozco's murals are the highlight of any visit to this gallery, but there is so much more! Mostly modern art. Lots of changing exhibits. Extensive bookstore. Free entry on Tuesdays.

Orozco murals are really interesting. Other temporary exhibits of interest as well. Beautiful historical building. Free guided tour of the Orozco paintings with museum entry fee. Easy walk to other downtown sites.

This is one of the places you must visit while being at the historic downtown area. They charge around $50 pesos per person for entrance and you can leave your backpack in the main office. They have several exhibitions going on and I really enjoyed...More

You must take the short 20 minute free tour to be able to appreciate the murals. There is a tour guide who speaks english.
