Lovely bulding containing very modern works of art. But the central courtyard is beautiful. The building itself is worth a visit.

A huge two-story elegant building with revolving exhibitions. Larger than life sculptures of horses and humans, sometimes grotesque, by Javier Marin dominated the space. Stunning work. Entry free on Sunday.

I know this building since I was very young and it was not a museum but full of business offices, so everytime I go there I feel like this building and I go way back. The structure is amazing, it was part of a dowry present for Mariana Berrio de la Campa y Cos when she married Pedro de Moncada... More

Beautiful building, a quiet spot away from the chaos of Madero. Exhibits seem to change, but when I visited, I saw Diego Rivera's Flower Seller! What a lovely surprise.

Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays.
