beautiful building

We went to see the folkloric ballet and the building was spectacular. Please take the time to appreciate the art inside the building. At night it is beautiful

Unfortunately, the only way to see the murals was to stand in line for 2 hours and buy tickets to a current show which we didn't want to see but it was on the second floor and the murals were on the third floor.....frustrating.

Just a short walk from the Zocalo this spectacular building houses a theater, art exhibits, famous murals from people like Diego Rivera, a bookstore with a large collection of art books, a restaurant, and so much more. A new exhibit on Leonardo da Vinci Exhibit opened in late June, 2015.

One of the most beautiful museums we've visited by far. The great thing is that you can visit as many times as you want and they are always showcasing renown works of art. We also visited the theater and the acoustics are remarkable. A must when visiting Mexico City

The architecture of this magnificent house to musicians, dancers, and artists of many kinds is absolutely captivating. You have to see it both during the day and at night.
