This museum is free, but I'd pay good money to view this diverse collection. First of all, the architecture is awesome, so unique and that carries through on the inside. Collection is vast and comprehensive. One of my favorite things was some of the paintings were hung on wires so you can walk around it and see the backs of... More

This museum features galleries of art central to México's history. Built in six rooms, or galleries, one is on each floor. The sweeping architecture of the building means the stairs from one floor to the next are woven into the design of the building. Between each floor, a ramp is provided as an alternative to walking up steps. I'm not... More

The building is a dream for someone who enjoy "avant-gard" in construction. It is really something to visit.

Carlos Slim certainly has done a wonderful thing for the people of Mexico and us wandering tourists. This collection--housed in a purpose built museum that looks and feels very much like NYC's Guggenheim--is a magnificent assemblage of Rodin & Dali sculptures along with a more modest collection of French,Spanish and Dutch master from the 16th - 18 th century.. admission...

We visited here because it was near where we were staying. The building itself is interesting both inside and out, although it makes no use of natural light (windowless) and is just kind of plopped into a commercial corner in the Polanco neighborhood near a mall and Costco. The best part of this museum may be that it's free, so... More

I can't really describe how i feel about this museum, but dissapointed isn't strong enough . As a monument of Polanco, one of the finest (if not the best) neighborhood in the spectacular México City, I'd have expected so much more; starting from an artistic point of view to stop at an effort of making things properly. México City is... More

I don't love this museum; I find it awkward and poorly curated (Who puts sculpture. indoors, on the top floor?) However, I love when unexpected things happen like this: Ever since I'd studied the Renaissance and Art History, I've always hoped to see a work by Artemisia Gentileschi. I was pretty sure that would only ever happen if I were... More

This is a very good museum, if you are in México City for a short time, Museo Soumaya is a must. They have a great Auguste Rodin exhibit, which is simply wonderful. Of the other exhibits, the "Asian Ivory" is also very good. You need about three hours for the whole museum. Access is free, but parking is not.

If you want to see real pieces of art from Dali, Rodin, Miró, Picasso, and so much others in a place and for free, this is the best place to visit, the museum is also a great piece of architectural art, they have over 20,000 pcs of art on permanent exhibitions and also some intinerant exhibitions too.
