Somehow I missed this place on my first visit to Taxco, so what a surprise to find an absolutely lovely cultural centre. I believe the exhibits will rotate, but we saw an amazing one about a well known local clothing designer and her history over the decades. Also a wonderful poster exhibit and works of silver art. Don't miss it... More

We had a local guide who told us wonderful stories about William Spratling and the beggining and consolidation of the silvercrafts in Taxco. He spent about 45 minutes telling us charming and interesting stories, it was worthwhile even if 50% was true!

During my travel from Mexico city toward Acapulco I paused at Taxco for about four and half hours. I decided to make a trip up to a view spot in the town. The temperature was warm and I provided myself with mineral water. I turned my face up a little every minute and I was quite exhausted when I reached... More

Kept the local trades busy knocking up this building and still looks great centuries latter the surrounding silver shops are a nice distraction.

I loved this place and this is how I imagined Mexico. This old silver city with its spectacular church deeply impressed me. It is an 4 hour drive from Mexico City, but really worth it.

After taking a very winding mountain road you will arrive at the quaint little town of Taxco, know for it's silver. This is a fairly long day trip from Mexico City (about 2.5 hour drive) The town itself is small with narrow cobbled streets and many silver jewelry shops. There is a beautiful Catholic Church on the square. Lots of... More

Free to enter, with nothing of note to see. Most of the rooms were locked on all three floors and the staff on show weren't interested at all. Nothing in the walls explaining anything, poor showing.

They had a beautiful display of silver pieces that were part and parcel of an annual Silver artifact design completion in Taxco. There is so much art, design and silver to admire in this exhibit that you finally recognize the quality of workmanship and creativity of the Mexican silversmiths. The Casa de Cultura also offers free movies, conferences and displays... More
