While the architecture of the windowless building itself is amazing, we really enjoyed exploring each of the six floors. My favorite wasthe 6th, which has sculptures primarily by Dali and Rodin. Having been to the Anthopological Museum a few days before (absolutely amazing, can't recommend it enough!), we did skip some things. Allow a good 2-3 hours. There is nowhere... More

Putting together an art collection can be the work of a lifetime, and the collection itself can eventually become an institution. You will not find anything of the sort in this museum. It is, as a critic rightly described it, “a grab-bag” of disparate objects, a tycoon’s “wunderkammer” where there’s very little to marvel at. And the architecture is sadly... More

This museum has an impressive private collection of art, the building itself is an art piece of architectonic delight. Make your way to the last floor, the sculptures displayed are just amazing.

The coolest building museum I have ever seen; however; the collection leaves a lot to desire. In sure they can do better with the flow of the different themes but it gives you a small idea of the Mexican Culture. Dont miss it, its free of charge.

This is a very nice and modern museum. The outside arquitecture is really outstanding. I was fortunate to visit it while they had in display an special Dali and Rodin exhibition in the top floor, so it worth the trip. The remaining collections have their stars like the only Van Gogh in Latinamerica ( or I was told) or some... More

One of the worst art collections in Mexico. This museum has no theme, style, or even curatorial idea.

Loved the outside and the area. When inside i was a bit disappointed. Not about the collection in it self but the way it was all presented. There is no natural flow to look at things and you go like a ping pong ball to each ting and back. This museum needs a better curator as i think the one... More
