I was lucky enough to also see a Henri Cartier Bresson exhibition at the same time as we visited to view the murals. For a fee you can also take photographs, make sure you do this as I did see the cards stopping people who did not have the required sticker. The interior of the building is amazing and they... More

First of all, congratulations on the tour guide that took us around the palace. Amazing and motivational all around. What an amazing place, excellent stories around it and a true gem in the middle of the city. I would love to have a place like this in Lima. Congratulations. A true palace.

The Ballet Folklórico de Mexico and the Palace de Bellas Artes together are a must thing to experience. Built over several decades which translated into a Beau Arts exterior and an Art Deco interior The Placio de Bellas Artes is an incedible venue for the Ballet Folklórico. Stunning interiors and the incredible Tiffany glass curtain alone make the visit an... More

A well preserved piece of architectural history in Mexico. The hike up the long stone road to the palace is more than worth it. The staff is nice and you just can't get a better view of Mexico City.

We saw the Ballet Folklorica here on Sunday morning. It was stunning! A real treat as the building is magnificent and the performance was tops!

I like the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit, but other than that, it's not worth paying to go in unless you enjoy art (not much in terms of quantity anyway). The exterior of this place is beautiful though....Do catch both the night and day view of this place (don't forget the golden roof!)

The structure from the outside already is by itself a cause of awe. I don't even have to mention about the inside of the building with its manor house like structure, its shinny marble floors and its immense amount of opulence! Don't miss this!

But for the entrance price would have expected more than 1 floor of murals 50% of which were covered by scaffolding & one only of the 2 current exhibitions. If your objective is the Tiffany curtain this is free & on display at 1.30am....do not be late & be prepared for a 30 min lecture in Spanish.
