Attend the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico on Sundays at 9 or 9:30 am, or on Wednesdays in the evening. Arrive on time to see the glass curtain at the theatre. Its a wonderful work of art. Allocate some time to enjoy its magnificent architecture, inside and outside. A most see experience in Mexico City!

Check out the Art Deco here! Such a stunning building. Amazing murals. My only disappointment is that we didn't have time to attend a ballet! They have matinees as well as evening productions.

Belles Artes has wonderful murals and is a delightful marvel of architecture. Some of the murals may not be appropiate for children ( I think anyway)

We were able to see the dozen murals on the walls on the 2nd floor. However, the two rooms on that floor dedicated to particular painters of the mid-twentieth century were not open. We then sought the other large 1st floor, and found it was entirely closed. We finally sought to visit the architectural displays on the 3rd floor, and... More

This cannot be missed by anyone interested in the history of architecture and design. The most extravagant and perfect example of Art Deco. The interior of the building is stunning, as are the famous murals on the second landing. You might do do nothing alse in Mexico City but this is a must. See my comment on the Ballet Folklorico...

The Theater Curtain, the Marble, the Art Nuevo and Art Deco are fantastic a must see with Aztec touches .. the Siquieros, Riveras and Orozco paintings are well worth it too.. Nice history behind the sinking building. I would love to see or hear a performance in that facility. A must see for the cultured busy Bee..:)
