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

Such and interesting building, the exterior is intriguing and the interior is very open with no windows. It is a free museum which is great because it is pretty far and requires a metro and bus trip from most parts of town (About 4-5 miles from the nearest metro station). They recommend you start on the top and work your... More

Great place to take a quick break from the city's pollution and enjoy some free art (and wifi). Really spectacular collection.

Museo Soumaya, dedicated to and named for his late wife is an interesting piece of modern architecture housing an incredible collection of art, sculpture, and local items of interest with one floor dedicated to a changing exhibit. The amazing thing about this cultural jewel is that the admission is free to the public. The museum is easy to navigate especially... More

Excellent collection of Rodin and Dali works on the fifth floor. The building itself is already worth a visit. Rest of the exhibition is ok and a mixture of different works and artists. Free entrance.

This place was not on top of my list in DF. So many other interesting museums and with so unique pieces in Mexico than seeing european master paintings instead of Mayan sculptures did not make sense. I still think you have several places to visit while in DF before this one. Yet, this one worth a visit at some point.... More

If you haven't got time to go inside at least drive past this amazing building. It's near two great shopping malls so it's an easy detour.

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.
