Nice house downtown with interesting temporary photo exhibits

A rebuilt house down town houses a couple of temporary photo exhibits, mostly by local young people.

The place consists only of a few rooms surrounding a little courtyard but when I went they had interesting exhibitions on display. Photography or art lovers shouldn't miss this place. It's free anyway and just comes with a small donation box.

These are not beautiful photos here. They are political statements of the political struggles and violence that have plagued this country. The commentary is only in Spanish so bring someone who speaks the language to get the most out of your visit.

A small, yet charming museum that features four photography galleries. Really cool exhibitions featuring different aspects of Mexican culture and history. Definitely would recommend to visual artists.
