A beau arts exterior with a deco interior, the building hosts some of the most important of Mexican murals. The Ballet Folklorico performs on Sunday's and Wednesday's and there are very inexpensive pops concerts on Sundays as well.

interior contrasting with exterior is worth a visit. However, I find it a bit exaggerated to ask to buy a ticket, just to climb a few stairs and see the paintings on the third floor. It was also not possible to see the main room. So I would say: enter in the main lobby and admire the hall, but the... More

I really liked that Palacio de Bellas Artes. I booked a ticket to watch a folklorik ballet and was quite cool! Go in front of the Palacio crossing the road in the shop and go to the 8th floor to have a coffee, they have a terrace with an awesome view!! You will be able to take pictures there :)

The neo-baroque exterior hides a dazzling Art Deco interior. The exterior predates the current interior by 30 years and the contrast is profound. Though the art exhibitions in the galleries are fascinating, the true delights are the Diego Rivera and Siqueiros murals emblazoning the four walls around the atrium on the 2nd level. Go to the rooftop cafe on Level... More

Truly enjoyed walking around the grand lobby. Also watched a show on the cultural dance of each province of Mexico. Classy and educational place. If you have time, a must-see.

This Palace even though not too old...just around 89 years old is one of the best places to listen to concerts, live opera and performances in general. Prices are very reasonable and the acustic is fabulous, plus the inside is magnificent.

Take the time to see over the murales. It is full of history and details of Mexico. Great place worth a visit. A must go. I am visiting it every time I visit this country. Most of the known artists are represented there. Mexico is full of art everywhere. Enjoy!

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
