“Great collection & overbearing security”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

I had 40mins to spare while working downtown and a short hop over to Museum. First of all the galleries are amazing and the paintings are wonderfully organized and hung. The Security was a nightmare being constantly followed with at least 4 guards per room. Excessive considering I was in a suit etc. Definitely worth the trip.

“Amazing collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Amazing collection of Mexico's history and culture. You must visit! We stayed a few hours, but you need a lot more time to capture it all.

“Fantastic venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

The service at this meal was exceptional - no lengthy waits between courses.
The food was well prepared and presented however, the surroundings were the exceptional part of this meal.

“Always something for every taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

The permanent exhibits here are so extensive that they merit multiple visits. Additionally, the temporary exhibitions are of the quality of a true National Museum of Art. The one that I viewed today, while only on display for a few more days, is typical of such quality: Male Nudes in art and sculpture.
