The Museo Casa del Risco is also known as the Centro Cultural and Isidro Fabela Library. Its former owners, Don Isidro Fabela and Dona Josefina de Fabela, decided to donate the mansion and art collection that necessitated turning it into a museum to permanently display works of European and Mexican art from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
The museum includes a library, archive, educational and cultural activities, sponsorships and donations. Upon visiting the house, you can not help but admire the fountain in the courtyard, that was created from pearly shell, Talavera pottery, china porcelain, and other elements with international roots which make it a truly unique sculpture.
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00. Admission is free.
