The murals on the second floor are incredible. Don't miss them! On the groundfloor there is also a great bookstore that has many interesting books.

Beautiful murals inside on the second floor. Make sure to read about the stories depicted in the murals to get a full appreciation of these pictures. Don't miss it! The park outside is also nice to around and escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

You can spend there hours. The building itself and everything inside it are interesting. The murals of Diego Riviera are unforgetable! Very good museum shop.

This is a stunningly beautiful building both inside and out, and has an amazing symmetry to it from above. Inside it has the most elegant light fittings and chandeliers, do look up when you go into rooms. We payed to go upstairs and see all the amazing murals by Diego Rivera amongst others and there was also a lot of... More

Built in the begining of 1900. Began by architect Adamo Boari and finished by Architect Mariscal in 1934. There is always something going on in this theatre. Check the program in the official web page http://www.palacio.bellasartes.gob.mx/. There is a restaurant inside the Palace great food. No tickets needed to go inside, visit the public áreas and maybe have lunch.

Went there late afternoon, and really enjoyed the architecture of the building. Had a look at the paintings- level 2 has a really interesting set of paintings with lots of historical references. Use the interactive screens if you can.
