The building itself is a spectacular art work. Once inside there are several collections, my favorite is the top floor with a wonderful collection of 19th and 20th century masterpieces by some of the most famous artists of that period.

At first I was skeptical, but it has so much to offer and you definitely need more than 3 hours to enjoy this gigantic museum. I was amazed by the quantity and quality of the collection. It's not only about Rodin sculpture and European and Mexican art, but it also has collection of old vintage artisan watches, glasses, and so... More

I was not sure what to expect inside this amazing structure. I started from the top down as the museum building is a circular shape inside, you walk down in ramps. The collections were varied and wonderfully displayed from Dalí to Rodin, Asian treasures, local Mexican coins, watches and jewellery, European masters and luckily for me a Sophia Loren exhibit...

The building is stunning from the outside and at night, when illuminated, try to visit one of the resturants / bars in th adjacent shopping mall to take some pictures. The view is great. Entry is free and the collection well worth it. When we visited recently they had a special exhibition of Sophia Loren, which was beautiful. I especially... More

The building is spectacular, incredible, amazing. Then there is the art collection. And it is free! You need a couple of days to see the collection; it is so vast. There are 6 floors - the sixth is dedicated to sculpture. They house the most Rodins and Dalis I have seen at one site ever. And there are so many... More

We visited with my 5, 8 & 11 year old girls. When we told them we were going to a museum they were a bit disapointed. After the visit they were convinced that museums are fun & cool. This is a very easy museum to visit. If going with family, go to the top floor and start going down. Our... More

This is a great museum. The structure is great. It has many collections. Sophia Loren's collection is great. The day we went was crowded but access was fast.

This museum is housed in an architecturally interesting building with wonderful collection of Mexican and international art. For English speaking visitors, you can ask the info desk for an English speaking guide. Our guide Elena was complimentary and she spent 2 engaging hours with us. She was well versed in the art and history of Mexico.

This is a rich man's collection where someone told him he must have a "Degas" and a "Renoir" etc without regard whether it is a good Degas or Renoir, etc. There is no curator behind the collection. Some pieces are very good. Most are terrible. Another criticism is that there are no signs in English nor guides. An international museum... More
