Bellas Artes is divided in three parts: 1. The outside 2. The Museum 3. The Theater The Museum has wonderful murals (Tamayo, Rivera, Siqueiros, Camarena) and usually good temporal exhibitions. In the museum, you just need to spend about an hour. The outside is an amazing location for selfies, and also to visit other places around in the same day,... More

Right in the center of the Centro Historico it's a great meeting place but inside the palace offers an amazing time. Be sure to see the stained glass theater curtain that is beyond incredible!

There seem to be good views throughout the theatre. The ballet was different from European style ballet.

Great acoustics. Amazing architecture. Historical building amidst historical area. Centrally located, walking distance to other interesting places to visit. Good restaurants nearby. Folklore and art, great combination.

This place is a must see when you come to mexico, it has several metro stations nearby, in the blue line (in mexico the metro is easier to identify by colors), the metro station is called "Bellas artes". You can go up and down from here to other famous places such as Zocalo, La torre Latino americana, El templo mayor,... More

The building is extremely beautiful, and should be included in your downtown visit and building sightseeing. It is incredible the way it has sank in the soft soil surrounding it.

One of the most beautiful and with history buildings in Mexico. It is best known for its murals by Diego Rivera and Siqueiros, as well as the many exhibitions and theatrical performances.
