This is a simple structure with a huge front yard. I suspect this is a GREAT center for public events, protests, concerts, etc. On a regular weekday in May it's just a big open space with a simple building in the background. But this isn't...More

The murals here, by O. Barry Cunningham, are among the finest in Mexico. The architecture is beautiful as well. It's free and nobody seems to mind the tourists wandering around with their mouths agape.

In the public areas of the Palacio you will find some of the most impressive murals in Mexico. They tell a great story about Mexico and it's independence.

Over the years I have worked with several officials in Aguascalientes - the Palacio is where things happen. It is built around a courtyard with murals around the inside walls. The big plaza is also a place for many things to happen in this city.

I love to visit the palacio. It is beautiful and the people are very friendly! There is food always nearby and places to just sit and watch.

Only got to go through quickly but the architecture and murals are quite nice! It is good for a quick look around if you are in the historical center of Aguascalientes.

It's Free to walk in and the bathrooms are clean! If you get a chance to check it out during Christmas, then this sails up to a 5 star must stop attraction, your photos will be beyond gorgeous!

We had gone to see the "Broken Christ". Our guide decided that I was sufficiently curious about Mexico that I should see the murals of the Palacio de Gobernio. This palace was built in the 1700 First, It has to be said that those murals...More

It almost seems to required that important governmental buildings be decorated with spectacular murals, and this one was no exception. (Copying Mexico City maybe?) I found Aguascalientes to be a bit drab; these murals were not!
