University of Guadalajara Museum of the Arts (MUSA) Tours

University of Guadalajara Museum of the Arts (MUSA)
If you walk west from the Centro Historico along Avenida Juárez, you’ll come the University of Guadalajara campus and the University of Guadalajara Museum of the Arts. A two-story neoclassical building of white brick, the museum is designed on a cross formation and is home to two important works by Jose Clemente Orozco. The murals are located in the auditorium: Stone columns support a domed ceiling emblazoned with the dramatic "El Hombre Creador y Rebelde,” or “Man, Creator and Rebel.” Behind the lecture stage is Orozco’s famous fresco, “El pueblo y sus falsos líderes” or “The People and their false leaders.” The clever use of space creates the impression that you are inside an Orozco mural. In typical Orozco fashion, the effect is mesmerizing but slightly unsettling.

The museum also houses a rotation of traveling exhibits and a fine permanent collection with works by important Jaliscan artists such as Martha Pacheco, Javier Arévalo, and Carmen Bordes.

Practical Info

The museum is an inexpensive cab ride or a pleasant 15-minute walk west from the Centro Historico. Admission is free.
Address: Av. Juarez N 976, Centro, Guadalajara, Jalisco 44100, Mexico
Hours: Tue-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat-Sun 10am-4pm. Closed Mondays.
