This is a must see if you love studying art,collecting art or seeing fabulous architecture. The Guggenheim like interior is perfect for transporting the viewer into different time periods and genre of art. The depth and breadth of Carlos Slim's collection is staggering. The top floor featuring Rodin and Dali sculpture is curated like no other space I have seen.... More

Loved going through this (free entrance) museum. Owned and commissioned by Carlos Slim, the wealthiest (or second wealthiest) man in the world. Beautiful and modern building, great collections of wonderful art. Highly recommend.

Messy and paranoid but free. Visited with my 2 restless sons, guards were very scared that they would touch or run or do anything at all, so didn't have a good time inside with them. Would avoid it as an advice unless your children can behave as adults for the 30/40 minutes and you want to do a quick visit.... More

Over 6th floors, start by the top and take the lift and then walk down. The 6th floor is definitely my favorite. Plenty of Dali sculptures and of some very known artists worldwide. All is mixed with no logic but does not matter much when you are not keen on history. Was nice to see different things never seen before... More

Although advertised as a Guggenheim-sort of museum by the fact that it is Carlos Slim's private collection, and he himself build the museum, etc. the whole experience is well, underwelming. The design and architecture is interesting although controversial. What is reaaally poor is the execution itself. The craftsmanship, materials and finishes are what you'd expect from a public bus station.... More

I feel bad for having this monstruosity in my city. It looks like a washing mashine from the Jetsons. The inside is even worst it seems the owner bought art in bulk and had like one pice of every bulk that mattered the other pieces were mostly rubbish. But he had no place for it to be displayed so he... More

This place is owned by one of the richest men in the world and to be honest its quite mediocre, he could have done better with all the money he stole

Starting with the unusual and beautifully shaped building with mirror like, hexagon shape cladding, through the walking experience within the building and the amazing art content, make this visit a memorable amazing experience. I wanted to go with my friends to the archeological museum, but it was a Monday and I found out that most museums are closed. It turns... More
