I went to Bellas Artes for a few times. You could watch music concerts here and there's also a museum inside which shows architecture and also Picasso. It was worth it to visit. You'll see some maintenance around the building because the Bellas Artes was made of marble, the building was too heavy and it's started to sink. Outside of... More

I dont want to overcrowd the cafe or lose my seat BUT you have a superior view of the Palacio from the outdoor cafe in the sears building across the street. Its a great place to sit outside and sip an expresso overlooking the Palacio.

If you love Mexican art and murals, go here. Spectacular murals in a beautiful setting. Enjoy exploring and check out the regular exhibits that they host. The displays for exhibits in so unlike the often sterile US environments for presenting artwork. Definitely put on your list of attractions while in Mexico City. And check out the little bookstore/handicrafts shop on... More

Incredible architecture. Have been to Mexico City several times and seemed to not have made it inside. Huge regret. But what I like about Mexico City is that there's always something new to discover. This was the case. The interior and its murals are stunning. Breathtaking. The ceilings are unbelievable. They also have a museum and well stocked bookstore. The... More

Just poked around a little bit and found it very interesting. It is not a must see, but if you are close by go ahead and stop by.
