Museo José Guadalupe Posada

Though it only occupies a small building in the Jardín del Encino about 1km south of the centre, the Museo José Guadalupe Posada is one of the main reasons to visit Aguascalientes. Indeed, the town is almost a place of pilgrimage for devotees of this influential printmaker, who is best known for his political satire and criticism of the Catholic Church. The permanent exhibit here contains a well-curated collection of Posada lithographs, along with the original plates and background information in Spanish.
