We toured the history section of this museum which gave a solid overview of the Bajío region and then saw a fantastic exhibit of the work of Rufino Tamayo. If you are in Leon, don't miss this museum.

I couldn't believe that this large modern museum is free! In most cities this would cost $10-20 usd. I especially enjoyed the exhibits on the history of Guanajuato and mining, especially after having toured the mines in Gto and Zacatecas. The 20 peso (!) Ruffino...More

I liked the building and cultural campus. Definitely worth a few hours and an easy walk from the center of Leon. It is Leon at its most expansive and open.
