A great art museum in downtown Mexico City housing a vast collection of Mexican art from the XVIth century to the second half of the XXth century. The beautiful building was the old communications palace and was built in early XX century.

This museum is located in Tacuba street in the center of Mexico City. The museum shows mexican painting with some very nice paintings and also some temporary pieces. The museum is not very big but it shows nice paintings. The building where the museum is located is very beautiful by itself. It's worthy to walk inside and enjoy it. This... More

A good way to spend an afternoon. It is free on Sundays. The work is mainly by Mexican artists. Everything is written in Spanish. Limited English translation is available in some rooms.

This exhibition is on loan from the Tate in London and is a wonderful history of Landscape paintings - on until mid June - the gallery building is a show of its own and don't miss the Velascos upstairs.

Free on Sunday, but I would have been okay paying the $3 (USD) admission on another day. Enjoyed the building as well as the art. The collection was a good size and we were able to get through without being overwhelmed. On our late Sunday morning visit it was not crowded, except in the special exhibits.

Visited the MUNAL to see the Landscapes of the Mind exhibit and loved it. Great exhibit and when you combine it with the Jose Maria Velasco, it can't get any better. And do walk around for the building is exquisite
