The house is beautiful itself and on a very convenient location, just few steps from the main square. Don Quijote is the greatest book of the Spanish/Castillian language ever, the essence of a great culture. This museum, unique in the world, is a wonderful homage...More

Only 30 pesos but the art isn't great. Not a must do, esp. if you haven't read Quixote. It's a collection of fan art, basically.

I was hesitant to go to a museum where there would be nothing but images of Don Quixote, but in fact, it was way beyond my expectations. There was quite a variety of art, some of it quite modern, others, more classic. What struck me...More

If you are in art lover do not miss this museum, located just a block from the main square in Guanajuato. It houses a collection of art inspired by Cervantes and his classic work Don Quixote.

This museo has great temporary exhibits and frequent gallery openings. A monthly calendar is posted on the front wall of the building. The coffee shop inside is on the expensive side but worth it!

Even if you don't know Don Quiote, I think you will find satisfying art work to enjoy. If you do know him, you will find wonderful interpretations of him and his story. Free on Tuesday!! (Though it only costs 30 pesos). VERY comfortable building, VERY...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the huge variety of artistic representations of Don Quixote even though we've never read the book. The museum has inspired us to get a copy of the book.

Marvelous, elegant building in the center of Central Historic. Sixteen rooms, hundreds of artists represented and ONE subject. Clearly I need to read the Man of La Macha again. There must be some profound, universal truths in this book to inspire such an outpour of...More
