Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian, Leon

4.6
Observe colonial and contemporary art in a complex of five colonial-era buildings connected together at Museo de Arte Fundacion Ortiz-Gurdian. The art collection consists mostly of Latin American art, though some sculptures and paintings in the collection were created by European artists. Hire an English-speaking guide to take you through the exhibits and talk you through the pieces and the artists’ stories. The standing collection is impressive on its own, but the museum also changes out exhibits regularly.

  • The Museum is very beautiful with its fountains, its patios, sculptures, paintings, highlighted with finesse. Great Museum to the countless small rooms decorated with beautiful ceilings. A museum to see without hesitation.

  • Exceptional art collection that is very diverse. Incredible garden setting for the galleries. Prepare to spend a few hours or visit twice.
  • Really neat museum. Especially the building itself. The art ranges from very bad to really great :)
  • Wonderful selection of central American art that gave me an entirely new perspective on the areas creative offerings. Excellent exhibits and very expansive showcase.
  • The most impressive gallery I have ever seen - just the building itself is breathtaking. Very unique collection of latin-american art.
