I only visit this place for the Sunday shows. The show and artists have been excellent at the 3 shows I have been to so far. Nice touch.. wine and snacks after the show in the garden.. great meet and mingle time. It is a bit of an expat & lost tourists hangout. Parking is very limited but street parking... More

I've never been to this place before, it was quite worth it. I absolutely loved it. The museum was quite beautiful, and the guide was really helpful. You can take as many photos as you want, and the architecture of the place is lovely. The houses have the enchanting vibe of a Mexican hacienda. They have many paintings from the... More

This was our third or fourth trip to GTO and wanted to get out and explore the area a little more. What a treat the casa is. It's a colonial era home remodeled in the 60's with colonial and modern antiques. I LOVED the aesthetics of the home, the lovely gardens and property were a treat to visit. So much... More

We visited the house where Gene Byron had lived at one time. Her work was displayed throughout the house. Very nice place.

The house and art are definitely worth seeing. The person who showed us around did not attempt to give us much information and only seemed interested in making sure we looked at the clothes she was selling in the gift shop. Her 97 year old husband likes to hang out there and chat with visitors.

All the work produced by Gene Byron is impressive, from lanterns to art and furnishings, What made our visit special however was the chance to talk to her 96-year-old husband, a Spanish doctor who lived a fascinating life, from being active in the Spanish Civil War where he knew Norman Bethune and Hemingway to working in Chiapas.

This house museum is a favorite of mine. Located among a string of old silver ore processing haciendas, this 17th century property was purchased in 1954 by Gene Byron, and her husband Dr. Virgilio Fernandez. Hernandez was a Spanish pediatrician. The Canadian Byron was born in 1910, and came to Mexico for the first time in 1942. Her background was... More

Maybe if the staff person who showed us around would have been interested in providing some information, giving us some time to view the art and artifacts, we would have enjoyed it more. This site is out of the way, and in a city of many cultural sites, it is probably not worth your time.
