Very pretty building with a very well curated exhibition of "The King and I" with art pieces from private and public collections. The best pieces are the ones from El Prado, in Madrid, Spain.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and there were hundreds of vendors on the walk there. The square in front of the building was filled with families enjoying the beautiful day. There was an outdoor movie playing. I only was able to see the front lobby of the museum because they were having a show inside, but still enjoyed the... More

The most beautiful Museum. Its a palace turned into a museum. There are lot of palaces across the place so you may hop around from one to another and keep looking. The prices of the tickets are not so expensive.

Beautiful museum housing a not very exciting art collection, but its temporary exhibitions are top notch. The building in itself is breathtaking.

This is an awesome building as well as museum of art. The huge stone structure is impressive. It's exhibits are extensive and largely explained in Spanish, as expected. I like the layout and the art was top rate. A good mix of European and Mexican art as well as art based history. "Yo, el Roy", an exhibit on the first... More

Fairly extensive review of nationally revered artists. It took me about 2.5 hours, going at a leisurely pace to see it all.

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.

There are many wonderful works of art to see in this museum. It's easy to find from anywhere in the historic centro of Mexico City. Definitely worth a visit.

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
