An art deco masterpiece. The murals surpassed our expectations. The permanent and new exhibits are world-class. Their book store is full of art books of every type and genre, from muralists to cinema.

I visited the palacio last year and it was terrific. This year there is restoration work on several murals on the upper level and it is harder to view the art. It is a little difficult to get a full view of the works when you are up close. The Rivera at the end is still terrific and it is... More

This gorgeous building is even more spectacular on the inside. While the murals are the main attraction (aside from opera, of course), Art Deco lovers will want to spend hours poring over the beautiful architectural details of this landmark. Afterward, stroll through the lush park next door -- a true urban oasis.

Architecturally, this building exhibits multiple personality syndrome. The exterior neo-Classical shell was built first (naturally) and to me is super boring. But go inside and you will, in my opinion, see the most consistently art deco interior for a large building that there is anywhere in the world; it is fully deco AND stylistically consistent. Important murals also!

A beautiful performance that lasted about 1.5 hours. The dancers are clearly at the top of their game, and each dance told a story. There is also some fun moments that would be good for kids aged 8 to 16, which I enjoyed too.

Most exciting two hours with the perfect, colorful and skilled dancers accompanied by local rhytms' musicians. You can buy your ticket at the boots within the place preferably in the morning. It is also recommended to buy the show's DVD sold during the interval.

We bought tickets for Amalia Hernandez Ballet, and enjoyed every second of it. No doubt my country has some of the best "history" in the world, and this dances were absolutely amazing, costumes the best!
