Regional Museum of Guadalajara



The museum is located in one of the most appreciated buildings by the people in Guadalajara, both for its extraordinary beauty and architectural harmony and its age (it was build between 1742 and 1758) and its multiple purposes throughout the history of the city: seat of the Council Seminary of Saint Joseph (founded in 1699); jail and quarter (1810); high school for boys and state public library (from February 8, 1818 to December 2, 1860).

During the War of the Three Years, it shared its space with the Executive Branch of the State while the palace of government was being repaired. In 1917 it housed the Conservatory of Jalisco. On November 10, 1918 it opened as the Museum of Fine Arts and in 1923 it changed its name to Museum of Guadalajara, although it became popularly known as museum of the state whose first director was Ixca Farías.
