This is a must see place if you are visiting the city of Mexico. They have some of the best pieces of art in Bellas Artes. My experience was even better after we came upon an art student walking around with us and explaining the different artists´ interpretations.

As a regular visitor to Bellas Artes, this time I wanted to comment about an exhibit that is worth visiting as it showcases two of the most influential artists of their era. The efforts that the government went through to put this together are well worth the two-hour queue to get the tickets for this experience. We tried booking in... More

My husband and I saw the Balet Folklorico on a Sunday evening. Our hotel (Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico) purchased our tickets for us ($MN 800/ticket). TIP: Don't purchase your tickets via Ticketmaster because it is much more expensive. Buy it at the site or if your concierge can purchase them even better. Apparently if you go wait in line... More

Not only beautiful from the outside, but I found it worth it to pay for the visit inside, it is not a huge collection but very interesting, showing some of the history of Mexico (and this comes from someone that doesnt usually appreciate art!).

Not a bad seat in the house. I'd say the best seats are in the lower middle row L through R. We went there to watch the Ballert Folklorico and the acoustics were fantastic.

The art deco interior of the concert hall is gorgeous, as is the sound acoustic. Do not miss the Diego Rivera murals in the lobby.
