Wonderful collection of paintings

We really enjoyed the paintings here. There are many rooms, with Picasso, Goya, Dali, and Miro represented through lithographs.

Beautiful building in excellent conditions, easy to walk through all displays of different pieces of art from the private collection of Pedro Coronel, recognized artist from Zacatecas. Abstract work.

Beautiful modern art works. Gallery is in a building that has a rich history. We were there 2 hours and could have spent more time if our schedule would have permitted. A Mexican treasure!

Must place to visit when in Zacatecas. Contains the private collection of masks and other objects of Rafael Coronel. The building is an ancient convent, which by itself is wonderful

On my trip to Zacatecas I was not expecting to find this incredible museum, the Coronel brothers knew how it's done. Their collection is beautiful and the buildings are incredibly well preserved. Take a complete day for these gems because they're enormous, and trust me, it's worth it!

This museum had some nice prints and was a beautiful space, but the collection of books was not my thing and so it only rates a three for me. The Arte Abstracto museum was a lot better in both its collection and its architecture.

This museum is located next to the Church of Santo Domingo just a few blocks walking distance from the Zacatecas Cathedral in el Centro. The building is a former monastery and upon entry, visitors find themselves inside the library where 25,000 antique books are displayed in dark wood bookshelves that run floor to ceiling along the entire length of opposite...

Excellent museum with a surprising collection of 20th century art, which consists of Pedro Coronel's work as well as his private collection, with lesser known works from Miró, Chagall, Picasso, Dalí, and many others.

The location is nice and the building is beautifully renovated, but we found the majority of the collection to be average. I would not rate it as one of the top attractions in the city

This is one of the best small museums. It showcases the work of Pedro Coronel, a well known Mexican artist. He was friends with and collected a wide array of "modern" artists, from Kandinsky to Picasso, as well as many lesser known Latino artists. Not to be missed in Zacatecas.
