About the museum
The museum displays a sample of the archeology of the cultures of western Mexico, colonial material, photographs of historical personalities and sketches by the painter José Clemente Orozco. It was founded in the 1950s through the efforts of a group of artists and intellectuals known as Arquitrabe, whose members included Juan José Arreola. The museum was incorporated into the INAH network in 1956. It has two permanent exhibition areas and one temporary exhibition gallery. The Western Archeology gallery presents a general overview of the social, economic and political development of this region of Mexico by means of interesting stone and ceramic artifacts, as well as some human bones from burials. The exhibition on the colonial period features a baptismal font and a Christ figure from the seventeenth century, which demonstrate that the control of the southern region of the state of Jalisco depended on the success of evangelization. The museum also features works by the illustrious Jalisco artist José Clemente Orozco dating from 1930 to 1937.
