The Palace itself is amazing, but if you want to see more than the mural paintings and the exhibition rooms inside, you will have to buy a ticket to a specific show to have access to the main show room. The Folkloric Ballet is an awesome experience and you can get cheap tickets in the Gallery.

Beautiful building especially if you love Art Deco. It is 'sinking' so it feels off to walk around because the ground is crooked.

Best time to see this building is at dusk. Beautiful architecture with a surprising art deco interior. If you can, see a performance. We saw the famed Ballet Folkorico of Mexico.

Beautiful example of art Deco. It was a very nice visit as it is close to downtown and the Palácio dos azuleijos. Please visit.

We went to see the Ballet Folklorico. Very good. We got the second most expensive seats which were better than being up the gallery. Buy tickets the day before. I would get 9:30 a.m. performance if you are going by metro for security. Taxies are hard to get there and dangerous. Make sure you go early before the show at... More

Not only is the building beautiful outside but inside it is totally worth the small amount you need to pay to get in and see the murals on the walls. Those murals are charged with social and political content that will make you think about the times when they were painted and will also help you understand the political landscape.

We avoided the queues that were hours long for the exhibitions and just went to the main entrance and visited the murals inside. They are so impressive. It was free to visit and 30 pesos to take photos

A good place to see some of Riviera's, Siqueiros' and Orozco's murals. Interesting, however columns in the building sometimes obscure vision of full creation. For art-lovers a must, for the rest a nice attraction in easily-accessible place.
