A fantastic building with thousands of aluminium plates! Very good colection of Salvador Dali and Rodin. Also a very good virou colection from China and Japan. The temporárias exibition at that time was about Sophie Loren! Nice place to visit!

The architecture of this building does overshadow the collections a little as it is incredible. Having said that it is definitely worth visiting. It was free when we went and had a Sophia Lauren exhibition.

Wonderful art collection. World class. Not to be missed. The Dali and Rodin sculptures were jaw dropping. A great way to spend a few quiet hours on a hot afternoon.

The museo Soumaya it's a beautiful building on the out side and inside, however the way they the gallery is presented is like an open room that doesn't let you appreciate every painting or sculpture.

Just because the building is worth a visit, admission is free and open every day which is a plus in Mexico City where museums are usually closed on Mondays. The architectural ensemble is remarkable, glass buildings that keep the corporate headquartes of Mr. Slim. where before there was only factories and warehouses. The museum collection is eclectic to say the... More

What do you build if you are the richest man in the world? The Museo Soumaya, claro. And the building is distinctive, worth seeing for sure. I am less converted, however, on the merits of the art collection it houses. Slim has amassed a true mishmash of items: coins and historic bank notes are displayed alongside religious art (if the...

The building is an unusual space-age design with a five floor interior that is packed with amazing art from all over the world. Each floor is a theme or time period. A 3-4 hour trip for art lovers. This museo is next to the Jumex, so it is easy to see both.

The architecture is fantastic, the museum is easy to navigate with access for disabled to all levels, there is something for everyone, the descriptions of the exhibits are in Spanish but you can access an app (either apple or android). We went on a Sunday morning at about 11.00a.m. and parking and access was quick and easy. I went to... More

A very atttactive building from the outside and very bright and luminous from the inside. This makes the visit more chearful and agreable. I liked most of all Dali's sculputures they are outstanding . All the other sculptures are beautiful too. The paintings are average, whereas Sophia Loren's part of the museum is really very very nice. Everything in this... More
