If you want to know the Mexican History from the Architectural and artistical perspective, do not miss this exhibition that is open till June 2014. The setting is faboulous! A colonial house from the 1800's transformed in museum. The exhibition combines original architectural sketches, pictures, scale models. It relates architecture, art, furniture and history, the exterior influences and the look... More

Located on Madero Street, the Palacio de Iturbide is an easy stop to see both a wonderful historical building as well as interesting temporary exhibits. Currently, 20th Century Mexico City architecture is showcased. Even if your not particularly a student of architecture, you'll find the exhibit interesting. From photos to architectural drawings to scale models, one gets a good sense... More

We stumbled across this museum as we walked down Calle Madero in the heart of the capital.Mexico City has made great strides since I lived here around 10 years ago and the pedestrianization of this street has been one of them. There was an interesting silver exhibition in a lovely historic building.

As you stroll down Madero Street, take a break from the maddening crowd to pop into the Museo Antiguo Palacio de Iturbide. First, the architectural brilliance of the building is worth a visit with or without an art collection housed inside it. Second, the collection of silver and jewelry will inspire both the artist as well as the hopeful collector.... More

There is little that I can add to other reviews except to reinforce how gorgeous this building really is. I have now visited it on two occasions on separate trips to Mexico and both times there was a very interesting, well-curated exhibition on offer. When I drifted in today, there was a fantastic silver exhibition and I turned up at... More

They're having amazing beautiful exhibitions of popular arts by master artists of Mesoamerica until June 2012. Each work is amazing quality and some of the works must have taken more than a year to make. Free admission. Must see.

The Palacio de Iturbide is owned by Banamex and has outstanding art exhibitions throughout the year. Admission is free and the Palacio is located just up the street from Sanborn's House of Tiles when heading toward the Zocalo. I live in Oaxaca, Mexico, and frequently visit Mexico City. The Palacio is always on my list to visit while in town... More
