Situated in the country's second city, the site of the original Guatemala City, the Museum of Colonial Art houses a collection of paintings by colonial artists such as Cristobal Villalpando and Tomas de Merlo, as well as religious sculptures from the same period. The building dates from 1676, when Guatemala's first university was founded on the same spot. Murals on the museum's walls depict scenes of student life from the period. Admission is ten quetzals for foreigners and two quetzals for Guatemalan nationals.
