On this visit, we only had time to enjoy the refreshments and pleasant service at the small cafe on site as well as the beautiful architecture just inside the building before we had to continue our walk toward Centro. Worth a stop for a long or short visit.

We went on a Sunday, and it was kind of busy. The interior of the building is so cool. We were there to see the Diego murals, and all the other murals. They were amazing.

I walked around the front lobbies and the art deco décor was amazing. There is also a beautiful, open dining area that, although I did not eat there, was busy and seemed well suited for the building. A great set of photo ops inside!

Great place to walk around and view the work of some outstanding Mexican artists. Free on a Sunday to wander around the halls admiring the art. Unfortunately I didn't go to a concert to see inside the concert hall.

yes there is a fee to enter, and another fee for photos but the murals are stunning, especially the Rivera - man, Controller of the Universe. too bad for the Rockerfella centre. it is a beautiful, detailed work. Go to the sears oposite the palacio bella artes for a good photo op of the building

Within walking distance from Zocalo, just take Madero and go straight in about 10 minutes you are there. Madero street is pedestrian only. they had a Picasso pictorial of his life very intresting.
