Guadalajara has become one of the most important cultural hubs in Mexico. With its identity and rich history, the city’s artistic expressions can often be found in the museums, plazas, and streets of the second biggest city in the country.
Instituto Cultural Cabañas
Undoubtedly the biggest and the finest place for the arts in Jalisco, the rooms and patios of the Institute, once a home for orphan children, have now become beautiful galleries that exhibit the best art from national and international artists.
Museo de las Artes de la Universidad de Guadalajara
In addition to being a work of art in itself, this building is home to one of the most active and visited museums in the city. And beyond the art exhibitions in the galleries, there are often workshops and lectures about history, literature, and politics.

The Museo Raúl Anguiano (MURA) opened just 14 years ago, but it is considered one of the finest places for modern art in Guadalajara. The constant showings of art have allowed a great number of artists to exhibit their work in the three galleries of this incredible place.
