A great little visit to this place is worth it to see Orozco's famous mural of Hidalgo. Don't miss this place! It is free and easy to access. Plus there are free clean public restrooms here. This was our go to place for many reasons!

You get to see one of the most famous frescoes by José Clemente Orozco. The congress hall is a must see inside. There’s also an interactive museum of the history of the city.

It is a big building built in stone with a neoclassical architecture. Built in 1790 to function as the seat of government but ceased to operate as government offices and at the moment is a museum. You can will find many pieces of sculptures, paintings...More

Nice little free museum in the middle of town. The murals are outstanding and the museum is interesting, but small. Worth a visit.

This is a place of work, but it's open for the public to view the Orozco murals in the stairway. They are fantastic. We were told to sit on the bottom step and look up to the ceiling for the best view.

The Palacio de Gobierno, which houses state government offices, was finished in 1774. It’s open to the public – just walk in – and it’s well worth stopping by, mainly due to two impressive socialist realist murals by local artist José Clemente Orozco (1883–1949). The...More

The Orozco murals were absolutely amazing. There were no more tours for the day when I got there, which would likely have been more interesting but it was still a nice time. We kept going back to the mural in the stairwell, noticing different things...More

Not too many governmental office are usually this accessible. The artwork and historical information is quite informative. My wife and I enjoyed poking around for a couple hours here. Clean restrooms, staff is friendly, and photo ops are plentiful.

Orozco masterpiece murals! Spectacular. Two Quinceañeras appeared within the grand staircase and colonades and created a fantasy vision within the Palace.
