The Museum is not so big, with cylindrical floors, one above the other. Now it has an Ivory Objects Collection donated to this place, excellent. Paintings, Sculptures, a Sophia Loren Tribute Exhibition and so on. The outside of this museum is spectacular, so modern, besides it is for free.

Had some business meeting nearby and took the lunch break to walk around this museum. It's free admission, after all. Beautiful building and interior design. Very easy to walk around. Unfortunately all the placards and commentaries are in Spanish. (This is quite a common occurrence in Mexico City. All the major tourist attractions have very little English signage.) If I... More

Excellent art collection. a must place you need to visit if you love art. the building is an amazing infrastructure and the art you can see is wonderful: Dali, picasso, and more.. Plaza Carso is also a big mall you also need to visit and the aquarium if you have kids.

Went to see the Rodin sculptures on the top floor and was pleasantly surprised by Dali sculptures on top floor and entire fifth floor devoted to Sophia Loren in honor of her 80th birthday last fall. Everything from Oscar to formal dresses to magazines to movies and a dedicated Happy Birthday song by Paul Anka. Wonderful!!

An unexpected highlight, I am very pleased I heard about it before travelling to Mexico City. The building itself is unusual and eye-catching and then the various collections, including Dali, Rodin, Van Gogh, inside are breathtaking. The Sophia Loren exhibit was interesting too.

Wow, a must see in Mexico City for the lovers of art and architecture. Beautiful construction and the galleries are amazing. Please do not miss the top floor, there is the biggest collection of Rodin.

Plaza Carso, where this Soumaya Museum is placed, is more than a mall, it's a place to walk around sculptures, original Salvador Dalí's sculptures, from the parking lot to the Soumaya Plaza Carso Museum (free entrance). Inside, you can choose to take the tour in Historical order, from bottom to top, or just jump into the elevator to the last... More

As if Mexico City didn’t already have enough fabulous museums, this new addition is reason alone to return. Located in a part of the city not previously visited by tourists, there’s lots of exciting architecture in the surrounding, emerging area. The building is definitely unique. Best to start at the top and work your way down along the slanted ramps... More
