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
