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.

Impressive building with whole lotta carrera marble. If you can attend an event in this place, you will be well satisfied. Otherwise, just look around and get a good cup of espresso in the restaurant.

I went here because the murals were recommended to me. They are worth seeing, but not as good as the ones in the National Palace, which are free to see. These cost about $4 to see, which is not a huge amount but is relatively expensive compared with other museums in Mexico, especially considering it takes just a few minutes... More

One of the fundamental artistic references in Mexico City, this palace is beautiful from the outside and in the inside, it really is an icon in the center of the city which can't be missed with its luminous dome and balanced proportions. The interior is a wonderful representation of the most renowned Mexican muralists including the "famous three" (Rivera, Orozco,... More

Even if you don't want to see a show, just go inside to see the architectural beauty of the structure. There are all sorts of shows going on, you can pick up a brochure inside
