Museum of Paleontology Guadalajara: what do users think?


José Manuel Mejía Martínez: The paleontology museum was so amazing, they give us a free tour an a good explanation about the prehistoric guadalajara history.Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Lino Coria: A small museum that offers a lot of interesting insights into Jalisco's past and present. Free entrance. Great for all ages.

Uta Friedrich: Cool, interactive, interesting. Even we as adults learned something new in every part of the exhibition. The only part that was not up to international standard was the bathroom. Otherwise, a great experience for kids and adults!

Francisco r Vernet: BEAUTIFUL!!!! Despite it was a wee bit small to what I have expected, it turned out to be amazingly interesting!!!!! The people, the museum staff were AWESOMELY polite!! I really loved the place; GREAT PLACE indeed!! Anyone who goes to Guadalajara MUST not dare to miss... visiting it!!!
Response: Thank you for your visit.

Will van Ingen: Small collection but interesting of different minerals. Still it's kind of small for such a big city. Nothing much apart of that. It's good to go there to help this Museum. 1h-1h30 is enough to have a regular visit.

Irvin WC: Cool little museum. Packed with neat interesting displays. Great way to kill an hour or so.

Łukasz Maciuga: Great museum, they have a lot of ancient bones and some full skeletons

Gaby Maroki: Free on Tuesday, free parking too, not crowded, my 8 and 10 year old really enjoyed looking at the mammoth bones
Response: Thank you for your visit.

Mike Smith: Small but interesting museum focused on some of the local paleontology around Guadalajara. The exhibits are well displayed and there's lots of information. It was free entry when I went which was a bonus.

Alfredo Fettucine: Free! Quite good. Located in a park with many other attractions and all are free. Did I mention it's free?Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Regional Museum of Guadalajara: what do users think?


Srini S: Not a lot of exhibits at the moment. It’s a beautiful building though.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Noor: Would spend no more than 2 hours here, lots of rooms, some of them locked. What attracted me to the place as I assume is the case with a lot of others was the skeleton of the woolly mammoth. If you’re only coming here to see that, it does not disappoint. It’s amazing how well preserved this specimen is. The tusks on the skeleton are almost unbelievably large.

Andri: Unfortunately there are no English descriptions of objects in the Museum .But anyway it’s totally worth entering ,to see the building itself , mammoth skeleton ,prehispanic handcrafts .Now it is operating 11-15 .

Anna Madaschi: The museum is open on Sunday for free entry. The first floor is not open to visit, only 2 rooms on the grounds floor are open. The bathrooms as well closed because the lady said as you don t pay the ticket today are not available. People very unfriendly, the security lady very rude.I have visited many many museums all around the Mexico, no one like this. the ticket price which is 80 pesos is absolutely not worth it

missmary: It's beautiful. Plan on spending at least a few hours to really see and appreciate it, not just the displays but the building itself.

Jim Mann: A must go to. The building itself is magnificent. The art work some of the best religious art I have seen. pieces of history for you to view everywhere. Worth the effort to spoil yourself.

mister dumpling: Majority of the info is in Spanish. I don't know how they selected the pieces that had English information.I don't understand how they organized their collections. Things seemed randomly placed, jumping times/subjects and overall a little hard to follow.

michael arredondo: Alot culture moder and history.Wait time No wait …More

Marisol: Small museum of history. Good walk through of about maybe 30-45 minutes top. No flash photography allowed but free entrance when we went on Sunday.

Larz Waggener: It's not a big place but you can tell the people that work here are very proud of it. Their main attraction is a giant Mastodon skeleton that is complete. And it's free!

Andri: Very informative museum about GDL - history and development .But unfortunately all info.cards are in Spanish .

Jenny Aguilar: No charge to enter. Highly recommend to view the historical context of the city. Building is beautiful with nooks and crannies full of unexpected items

Joseph Andrews: Wonderful free museum detailing the history of the city. Also has temporary exhibits. Lots of info if you read only a little Spanish.

Brent Tannehill: Very nice museum, and it's free. You'll learn the history of Guadalajara. The displays are in Spanish, but with Microsoft translator, I was able to take a picture and it would display it in English on my phone. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Figure on being here about 3 hours.

cormac diggins: Beautiful and succinct exhibits across 600 years of history. My only request would be to provide language translation for non spanish speakers/readers.

Robert Victor: Worth visiting to get an overview of the history of Guadalajara. More artifacts would be welcome and English language signage for foreign tourists would be helpful.

Ricardo L: The history of the city from the 15th century is exhibited in this museum. This place is recommended. However, you must be able to read in Spanish.

Carlos Saavedra: Nice place to quickly learn about the history of Guadalajara.Free if you’re Mexican!

Mohamed “MJ” AlJneibi: Humble ppl 💗

Becky Pylant: Very few items on display. The items there are interesting and very old. Free.

Ronja Ehmann: Opens at 10am sharp. Free entry and safekeeping of bags/jackets. Exhibition on two floors. As a non-native Spanish speaker I could have wished for more English translations of the explanations, but enjoyed the artwork nonetheless.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Daniel Cheung: A relaxing and unique experience. A lot of culture into each exhibit. Not too far from Downtown and venue around a few block every direction.

Monica Martinez: Beautiful museum to visit. The architecture and design of the place is breathtaking. I had the honor to see a Jose Clemente Orozco mural inside and it was absolutely beautiful.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait …More

Alice Bushell: We went to see the Leonora Carrington exhibition and it was really great! At the moment there is no entry fee just a donation. There were various fascinating exhibitions of different mediums. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the historical centre of Guadalajara! The shop also has lots of lovely bits for anyone looking for souvenirs!

Casa Viajeros: Free! Art quality varies, but well worth a stop. Beautiful building and located in a nice neighbourhoodVisited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Tony Ward: One of the many free things to do in Guadalajara. Great museum with a mixture of contemporary and classic art and sculpture. One of the most stunning classical architecture in Guadalajara. As it’s the old university, there’s a lot of graduation ceremonies held there. Definitely add this to one of the places to visit as part of your sightseeing

kaya dasha: We had the opportunity to visit the expo "En casa con mis monstruos" that is about the work and collection of Guillermo García del Toro. At the end of the 2 and half guided tour we were so pleased and happy with all the things we got to see. It is a really vast expo, divided in three, his work, his personal collection and a lot of the art that has inspired him throughout the years. The place looks so pretty and it has the right atmosphère. The guides were nice and helpful and the lobby at the beginning was very cute, overall we were very happy with everything, it's worth seeing and taking the time to see everything.

San Francisco: A must see in GDL for art lovers. This place is a gem for serious art aficionados. The building itself is an architectural gem. I was so glad that I got to visit this place during my brief stay in GDL. I got exposed to an artist named Leonora Carrington ! I had never heard of her nor recall seeing her artwork in Europe or US. The MUSA was having a special exhibit on her. The museum has very interesting collection from mild to spicy. The building is well maintained and cared for. If I am not mistaken even there was no admission fee!! Thanks MUSA staff and management on job well done.

Donna Moser: The outdoor sculptures by Jorge Marin were fabulous!Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More
Response: Thank you Donna.

Atziri Trejo: Only because there were only two exhibits, otherwise beautiful

Joel Gómez Hernández: Cool

Karla Herrera: The tour with the guide's explanation is very pleasant, it helps to understand the history of the community in Mexico

Héctor Manuel Arámburo García: A museum that leaves a guideline for future research on the visualization of LBTTTIQ+ people

Adan Chaidez: Attention with a very active listening to all your needs, mainly emotional, if you are looking for a break, here it is

Skater baddie94: They help the community a lot and excellent attention
Response: It is a pleasure!

Quetzal Malena: I've been to this place twice and I really love the way they serve you, there are people with a nice way of being :) The first time I went they did several tests and gave me condoms and didn't charge me anything. This time I went in a kind and respectful way, they told me about the situation that they were going through, that the government is no longer supporting them and that they are charging 50 pesos for each test that you apply, it is not expensive and it is understood that they need income for the budget . Something to improve would be that they have more fourth generation tests :) since it was the one I needed, they sent me to the inn because they had it there and it was free but hahah nothing to do with this place, the people there are super cold and indifferent, no They attended me, that I had to have an appointment and you know what else, it's sad because that is an association supported by Censida: p
Response: Thank you Luzquet Coatl, for your comments, we hope that soon we will have the 4th generation tests available, we continue to order

Cómics Historietas de México jaime cobian: Excellent atention

Angel A. David Ibañez: Very good place and especially in these cases, the people who manage it are very friendly, which is why the 5-star rating
Response: Thank you Angel, for your good comments and confidence! We continue to order

Gabriel Gutiérrez García: One of the most important civil society organizations in Jalisco. Dedicated to the defense of people from the population of sexual diversity.
Response: Thank you for your comment, every day we strive to do our job better.

Juanfra Padilla: It is an excellent work that is carried out in this association, I wish we could support this type of organization more.

Daniel López Castañón: Good place to know about the history and labor of the mexican army. Airplanes are exhibited inside.Access is free. Military staff is kind.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Not sure …More

Patrick Traichal: A nice self escorted museum with placards in Spanish. The site is well maintained with a variety of objects and photographic descriptions. A good way for military buffs to spend 2-3 hours.

Jeremy Jared Lozano Enriquez: It's wonderful. You need like 30 or 60 minuts to see all the museum. The airplanes, the weapons and the art exhibitions are incredibles. If you want to know about the mexican independence, military force and the importance of the women in the army, this is the correct choice.Visited on Weekend Wait time 30–60 min Reservation recommended Not sure …More

Nancy Foster: Located in downtown Guadalajara, they have some creepy dolls in cases with different uniforms, real military transport vehicles such as a tank, jeep, various helicopters and planes from the Cold War era mainly but they also had a few planes from WWII. Staff is all military and super friendly, perfectly pruned lawn and the building is visually really nice. Lots of creepy mannequins dressed in various uniforms throughout mexican history. I would have been more than happy to pay an entrance fee, really surprised you can take selfies with so many cool planes for free! Well worth a visit if you're in town and like old planes in good condition.

pepsbasurto: An outstanding place to visit while in Guadalajara. The best Mexican military museum to visit with the family.

AJ M: I hadn't the chance to visit it on the inside, but I could took these pics.

SYD: You can get in on some of the airplanes and there's so many things to see here.

marco tornero: A good place to spend half a day

Edgar Noriega: I liked this place! I learned alot , they have some intresting artifacts. The aviation halls were my favorite. Best of all its free.

Leandro Perez Felix: Is a great place to find the history of the mexican military from the aztec empire to the modern military, and also they have a awesome expocition of the fx-5 huitzcoatl the oficial weapone of the mexican military

Gabriel De Avila Sifuentes: I didn't entered the wax exhibit, but the games area.They have a spinning tunnel (be careful, you can get really dizzy), a mirror house, a 4D projection room and a 3D simulator.Great fun for an affordable cost.

War penguin: Very nice fun and interesting lovely place to bring children.

Jose Ibarra: Had lots of fun, and amazingly many of the art display look a lot like humans hahaha.

Edgar Maynez: This place is based on the travels of Ripley across the world, in which they show you the little extravagances found in its cultures, places and so on. It's next to other museum and they sell a package for both places

Jacob Beaton: Worth price of admission. Many life size wax figures. Most are very realistic. My son and I enjoyed very much.

figz fam: Awesome place, i loved it

Juan Alfredo Blancas Velázquez: Nice place to visit in the town of Guadalajara

Marco Alexis Hernandez: It's ok for the price but don't expect something wow

Gabriel Miranda (blinkerskate): The figures look amazing. Some of them are pretty creepy because they almost look alive. It has a very affordable price and the museum had a lot of known characters and people.

Jacob C: Free and stunning old covenant. Small enough for a quick visit when in the historic centre of Guadalajara. Worth seeing and rotating art exhibits are interesting too.Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Oscar H. Fajardo: It was an convent church with nuns but now it’s a contemporary art museum. Free to get in and rotating exhibits makes it a great place to visit often. Great space and clean restrooms.

Dan Reyes: This was a nice museum we found, the historic aspect can’t be ignored. It used to be a old convent, you can see where some of the old pillars were. The convent used to extend out into the modern street. The exhibit we view was very emotional. The bathrooms are very clean as well.

Jerry Wang: A historic building that has a couple of exhibits when we visited. You can still see the evidence of the cement arches cut off to make room for the road.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Andri: Beautiful place,free entrance ,constantly some events are going on .

Catia Paratí: Nice place to get a glimpse of local artist. Place also have a small movie theater but not so sure about schedule and capacity. Better go there to find that out. Location is very convenient to move around to other downtown landmarks. There are some handcraft goods being sell in the area. Good option to have a quiet chat in downtown.

Al Espi: It was free to go in. They have a second floor. Locals tell that before that main road existed that historical building was part of the structures that are across the street. There is a building on the corner of the street when you exit the art museum walk to the right on the sidewalk and you will see a statue of a man pushing a building. That building used to be located closer to the street. They did not want to demolish it because it's historical. So during the time they were building that main Street they decided the best way to preserve it was to just move it out of the way. They managed to move the building with heavy machinery to where it sits now. That is the meaning behind the statue According to locals. Regarding parking make sure you drive slowly and pay attention to the public parking entrances. I kept passing them because the driveways look smaller than what I'm used to. There are parking locations scattered all around the blocks. You have to pay for parking we payed about 35 pesos plus tip and it was for a valet parking located 3 blocks before the art museum. We enjoyed our walk after the museum. There are so many book stores and things to see.

Kirby Iwaki: This is a cultural center that has exhibitions, conferences and many other art-related activities, including a small cinema room where they show very interesting movies that aren't in commercial movie theaters (either oldies or art films). The place is nice and quiet, and it's never a waste of time to go in there.

Alexis Gregg: Everytime I have come they are closed because their hours are wrong. When I tried to explain they should fix the hours on Google they went on on how they have it posted in the building and tell me their hours..that was not the point.Hours are 11 to 5pm

Leon Xantopoulos: This is a great place to visit right on Juarez street. The place has some really good exhibits. This is a 2 story building with various halls, rooms, and walkways surrounding by local and national art. The architecture of the convent is great for pictures. On the weekends there is a "caminata artesanal" (artisan stroll) where various businesses set up right next door in the alley and sell their handmade products such as: bracelets, candles, soaps, "cuadernos artesanales", books, food, and so forth...

Yair López: General speaking this place is quiet and nicely. They are doing a really good job with the exhibitions and also they are doing another projects on Guadalajara neighborhoods.

Berenice Aguilar: Really nice museum, modern art of New Mexican artists.

Choong Shil Kim: We went on free admissions day (Tues) but it is not exhorbitant if you go the other days. Very small with only three small wings so its not overwhelming. And it was all local art. Worth checking out even if you are not an Art History major.

Mattias Strid: Small art exhibition but since it's free there's not too much to complain about. Mixed some different styles but it was definitely lacking something to connect the different parts together. Felt like three completely separated exhibitions.

Natalie Alderete: Lovely little museum, free the day we were there.

Andri: This is a beautiful place worth visiting . The tour is in Spanish (maybe there is someone to give. In English if there will be a group of people ) .You walk one Circle and can’t go back or wander around , so you have to capture everything in the moment . Entrance- 32 pesos and 81 if you Wannasee photos .

K. T.: I had something different on mind about the place. The tour guy does not speak English

damien sautter: Wow went on the day of the dead for the extra spooky experience, great history lesson.....p.s. you better be fluent in Spanish or you will miss everything

Ann Hardwick: My family and I had a wonderful day at Museo Panteón de Belén. It's a free attraction but you'll want to allocate 5 hours of your time to visit! We went on the guided tour, which was great because it helped us understand the significance of many of the people buried there. I would highly recommend this place if you're in town with kidsVisited on Weekday Wait time 10–30 min Reservation recommended Yes …More

Александр Виноградов: The tour guide doesn't speak English and nobody can explain how much I have to pay for ticket. Thanks to another tourists, who translated information from staff. Also guide was rude and unpleasant to communication. We just wanted to see this place but we was awared that we would be kiked out for photos without special ticket... Place is not so good cleaned. :/

Annie Ornelas: In love with the cemetery. Dont forget to visit the vampire with the huge tree on top! Stunning😍

jc_only: The tour is awesome, I took it a couple of times before the pandemic. Today I went because the web page says it is open until 11:30pm, but they close it at 10 pm because of the pandemic.

Cindy Colorado: Enjoyed listening to the history of the cemetery while on my night tour. You are not allowed to use your cell phone flash light because according to the guide it negatively affects the paint and structure of the building. You can use a regular handheld flashlight if you wish. The night time tours are busy and I presume that most people visit during that time because it's morbid and spooky. If you are more of a history and/or architecture buff then you are better off visiting during the day so you can truly appreciate your surroundings.

Copper Boi: My visit was great. I learned that a notable American is buried along perhaps some free masons and some other foreign personages. Our guide let us know that that the buildings design incorporates mason's rules and traditions. For example the columns represent the marks on a mason's square. I especially liked the echo display at the corner of the building. Take one step forward and you hear the echo, take one step back and you don't. Very interesting and full of information. I cannot remember half of the hour and so tour. They have night tours as well where they dwell in more detail on the myths and stories about the people buried there. Too bad I did not have enough time for the night run. The only drawback is the museum is only slowly getting maintained. I only wish it would be in better repair. Good visit thought with a lot of interesting points. Don't forget to buy your tickets at the little window to the right of the main gate. They charge extra for the use of the camera inside. No flash is allowed to preserve the building and no touching of surfaces or wondering around. They stated they had to do that because some visitors painted graffiti while other broke things. Despite the restrictions the guide was great and you can wonder a little as long as you are near your main group. Ticket prices are very reasonable. My tour was all in Spanish.

Miguel June: I would make this a stop in your adventures in Guadalajara. Short uber ride from the central plaza. Its not expensive, however please pay the extra fee that they charge to take pictures. It's worth every penny. The tour guide will ask and will be monitoring who is taking pictures. Learn about the legends of the city, the history, and the significance. The Vampire, Nachito and the architect that built the cemetery. Each one has a great story. The tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable. We took the last tour of the day which is at 3pm. Get there on time. Enjoy

Casa Museo Lopez Portillo: what do users think?


Aaron Miller: This former palace has free admission and is worth taking a look at if you're into antique furniture. The rooms are decorated in the era it was built. There seemed to be a nice garden out back but it was blocked off. A quick stroll inside is recommended.

Lex Renteria: This museum is a hidden gem in this part of downtown. The interior of the house is well decorated with furniture of that period, but it worths to take a quick look at social media or in person to check out the cultural program so you can enjoy from Jazz or Chamber Orchestra concerts, to temporary art exhibitions.

Anwar: If you like antique furniture this is the museum to go to.i had a guide explaining all the furniture,it's origin,it's utility, and the etiquette of centuries past.european and Asian objects are represented.beautiful furniture and it's original.former home of a Mexican president.

Joseph Andrews: Very nice period house. Interesting to see how the elite lived.

Jana Nawrath: Free on tuesdays, nice furniture

marco tornero: Good downtown location

hiromi figueroa: Like

Martín O. Delgado: Beautiful place

Gabriela Leal Calderon: A small museum, but very well cared for the details of the decoration of the time. Adequate lighting and friendly staff. If I don't give it 5 stars, it's only because you can't go to theaters.

Nay Morales: A small and discreet but very interesting museum with musical recitals and various exhibitions throughout the year. I think it needs a little more publicity, as it goes unnoticed despite being in the heart of Guadalajara. I attended on 04/16/22 and the exhibitions were closed due to the pandemic, so we could only appreciate the objects from afar. It would be great if there was an audio guide or someone to explain what you are seeing in more detail. On the occasion of Children's Day there was a very nice Playmobil exhibition and I think it is a good way to bring the little ones closer to cultural centers. The place in general and the toilets are clean. Admission is free.

Museo de Sitio de El Puente de las Damas: what do users think?


Vladimir Shnayderman: It's a small free museum. I would even call it avenue or a stopping place more than the museum basically tells you about the old bridge of Guadalajara. It's an interesting stop on the way nothing major to see or a specific point to go to but if you're walking around downtown Guadalajara might as well stop by.

Delia Nichols: Didn't know about this bridge! It was very interesting to hear the history, and the tourist guide made it very pleasant.😊Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Silvia Camarena: .... Nice

Christian Escutia: Gunpowder vgp

Luis Fernando Fernández Juárez: 👌🏽

Fakefire: Free museum, long waiting time and long lines to enter, the guided tour is fast, the turn of the contingent ends in a maximum of 20 minutes. Wear comfortable shoes because it is very likely that you will remain on your feet for a long time before entering, also take patience because the place has become famous and many people go to visit it. All in all, the place is interesting and a machine that transports you back in time to the historical past of the city, recommended for those who want to learn more about the city and its past.

Daniel Alejandro Avila: It is not what is expected. It is a short journey of approximately 30 minutes. It's totally historic, and you actually go through the "canaletas", arches where the river previously passed through many decades ago. They explain everything there. Very good to take your children to know and their grandparents to remember their times. 09/25/2022

Museo de las Artes Populares de Jalisco: what do users think?


Andri: Beautiful building .Free entrance .

Noah Tucker: English name of the museum is not exactly what you would expect - this is the museum of folk arts and crafts native to Jalisco. It's several rooms across two floors with everything from textiles to pottery to traditional clothing and wax art. Admission is free.

Karen Peters: One small room open.

Rajneesh Singh: It's very small but nice
Response: Thanks for your comment, we hope to see you soon

Lauren Paige Isaacs: Was not open on Saturday at 11am

Alejandro Castro: Culture
Response: Thanks for your opinion, regards

Daniel Victores: A Museum that is not very large but when you enter you stop seeing the Size, a Beautiful Remodeling and changes in the Exhibitions that in my opinion look better in all aspects. Please Visit the Museums Support the Culture and Art of each place you visit, you will not regret it and I promise you that you will spend incredible moments, Thank you.

Detours Mexico city: It is a beautiful and well-kept venue, however the exhibit is very small. When visiting it (June 2022) there is an interesting temporary exhibition, well informed about the artist and his work. I would have liked them to have the posters in English since there were several foreigners who had no idea what they were seeing and it seems important to me that they know more about our culture. It would also have been an excellent opportunity to sell handicrafts from the region (or from Oaxaca, depending on the exhibition). They ask for the name and age of one when entering and yet I did not see that they keep any record. Free entry

Hugo Bello: I am happy that I found the museum open this time and was able to enjoy the beautiful work of the artists of the threads.... I'm glad I was able to enter this time, very beautiful work by the artists of the canvas.

Oscar H. Fajardo: Nice park with great views of the government Palace and cathedral. Plenty of parking nearby . The new light rail station is also nearby . Great views of the palace and cathedral. Lots of pigeons here .

Sachin Louis: A beautiful historic square right desire the church. The gazebo there is a gift from the French. The construction of the new bus station there though may not have been the best idea. Nevertheless worth taking a tour to see the gazebo and the four statues signifying the 4 seasons.

Gabriel Román: History place, very beautiful, great place, hotels, restaurants, tapatio bus, the calandrias, museums, cathedral of city, nice place, gardens, tourist agency, banks, atm, ice crean store, the kiosk have architecture of french, the principal clock, have a shot of Pancho Villa, it is very important for the region history.

Lame Loser: Yes, it is a great place to people watch and to look at many government buildings, but the best part is playing with the PIGEONS. Go buy some ice cream or corn with creme and cheese and play. Just play and have fun

Carlos shows you things: Great family site, perfect fo kids to feed the local wild pigeons. Great historical place, right now has construction on the side an does not look as good as it used to, but when construction is over it will look just as good

Fred Arias: Beautiful place to visit in historic Guadalajara. It's safe to walk around at night and enjoy the scenery.

Aaron Miller: This is a great spot to relax and take a break while walking around the historical center. There are plenty of benches to sit, relax and people watch. The historic buildings around the plaza were amazing.

Paul Smith: Absolutely beautiful. Building surrounding are just incredible and in the centre there was performing musicians. Nice area to walk around and explore.

Airfox: Great place for pictures

Anthony Gonzalez: Romantic and magical place. An historical and traditional in the heart of the city. Wonder baroco art
