There is nothing in it! Just a bunch of empty space. The outside is unique and draws you in, but for what?

The Slim foundation has done a great job laying out all of these wonderful art pieces out for the free enjoyment of all. It is very well explained and you will see art pieces that you would only expect to see in the US or Europe, but they are in Mexico City.

This was our first museum visit in Mexico City. It's free, for starters, and it's a great museum with something for everyone. I loved the mix of European paintings, Rodin and Dali sculptures and their inclusion of famous Central American Artists. It was a great afternoon spent winding our way up the wide ramps leading to the top of the... More

This was a surprise to me. It is free of charge. The building, designed by Frank Gehry, has become a landmark. The first floors display colonial and pre-colonial art from Europe and sacred art from Mexico and Spain. The contemporary, surrealist, and modern art are in the upper floors. I would recommend starting from the top floor where the Dali... More

Words cannot describe this museum! There are 6 floors of Carlos Slim's personal collection of different types of art, coins, and memorabilia. Do not miss the 6th floor where there are many different sculptures! Free wifi and free entrance to this amazing museum.

This awesome museum contains the art collection of the Slim family. Statures of Rodin and Dali, paintings of Van Gogh, and loads of Mexican painters abound here. I even saw a wonderful retrospective on the Beatles on the ground floor with Beatle albums and articles in Spanish!

We easily spent 3 hours enjoying all of the art on display at this visually stunning museum sprawled out over 6 levels. One of the temporary exhibits were closed when we were there so would recommend over 3 hours if all the exhibit halls are open. Highly recommended, especially if you are an art/museum lover.
