It was constructed in the year 1948 and it served as the home of the architect Luis Barragán himself before his death. The house measures 1,162 square meters including the house itself and the green areas around it.

Temporary exhibits change yearly and the museum has been home to showcase important ones such as Equus by Teresas Zimbrón, Little Did He Know by Aldo Chaparro, Frederic Amat, La Mancha by Santiago Borja, Valeria Florescano, SANAA by Kuzuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, and countless more. It also hosts the University of Arkansa’s summer architecture program.
