Once the governor's mansion, this large structure now serves as a museum with exhibits on the art and history of the region, specifically the work of Goitia, a famous local painter from the early 1900s.

I'm not sure how to rate this museum as art preferences are so subjective, but given the art collection, the historic building, and the garden setting, I think it's a 3.5 - 4. The Goitia Museum is easily accessed and worth a peek if you...More

This museum had very good paintings by Francisco Goitia and other famous painters. One of my favorite Goitia paintings was on display "El Ahorcado". Unfortunately no photos are allowed inside, however i still recommend this museum if your in Zacatecas.

This lovely old mansion that has been converted into a museum is dedicated to Zacatecan artists with occasional exhibits by other Mexican artists. On two floors connected by a lovely sweeping staircase, the amazing work of Francisco Goitia will certainly catch your eye, as well...More

I had never heard of Franciso Goitia and what a revelation I found in this museum. The permanent collection here is excellent and I was very engaged by the temporary exhibit "anida" by Susanna Salinas - an exploration of the nest as nurturer, hindrance and...More

The highlight of the museum are the building that houses it and the gardens that surround it. The pieces in exposition aren't very interesting. The temporary exposition, overexposed and overly edited photographs, was worthless trash. Too expensive for the contents, and didn't provide discount for...More

If you have an interest in abstract painting and sculpture, give this museum a try. The building and exhibit layout is interesting and inventive as well.

I agree with the prior review. This is a wonderful little museum with very interesting art by a number of artists, not just Goitia. It is just slightly off the beaten path at the outer edge of the historic district but worth the few minutes...More

Francisco Goitia, an important Mexican artist whose life spanned the 19th and 20th centuries, had a tortured and mostly poverty-afflicted life, making it an odd bit of irony that his art should now be housed in such a handsome ex-governor's mansion. But this turns out...More
