I came here to see Diego Rivera's most famous murals, but was disappointed to find few of his works are permanently housed here. Otherwise, an incredibly breathtaking building, and the ability to see and learn about other Mexican artists made it definitely worth the visit, but there could have been some improvements. 1st, the staff could be more well versed...

We were short of time when we entered the building, but we had to see the marble on the first floor. A quick trip to the second floor murals was enjoyable too, and we have plans to return when time allows.

The scope of these murals is beyond words. Tamayo is my favorite Mexican artist (male) and Rivera is second, so to see them WITH Picasso was quite an experience. And it was by chance! What an amazing exhibit!

This landmark is one of the oldest in Mexico City. A must see monument and a point of reference in the city center, or Zocalo. Plenty of different activities to do in and outside the Palace itself. It was being remodeled the last time I visited but the renovations should be done soon. Perfect for art lovers, travelers, and families... More

If you are an Art Deco fan, a trip to the Palacio de Bellas Artes is a must. Situated near the Alameda Central within the Centro Historico district of the DF, the Palacio rivals any of its peers in Europe or the Americas. Both a performing arts venue and an art museum, it is a majestic and historic homage to... More

Just approaching the building requires some time to soak in the various details. From a distance it appears to have many of the classical queues of architecture. Upon closer inspection, we see an interesting mixture of old world and new world styles. The inside of the structure itself is also quite impressive. For lovers of the various arts and culture,...

A place where you can find murals of Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, Siqueiros. Listen music, or see a ballet in their theather, eat really fancy food, and buy a beutiful book.

We went there by feet over the beautiful streets of Mexico city. When we arrived the museum was open a clerck told us that day we could not visit the Frida Kahlo works today only tomorrow, very strange as on the web side nothing was mentioned. So we have to go again,as this was our last day.
