“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We saw the Ballet Follklórico de México and we really enjoyed it. We visited the building both during the day and at night. It is an amazing building and there is always something good to see. Be aware though that if you are buying tickets on site, you can only pay with Amex or in cash.

“At least have a Cappuccino here...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This area is full of things to see. The Palacio de Bellas Artes is amazing, European in construction, Strong presence and great sound. You will find almost every day something to listen too. Folklore dance or high level Philharmonic orchestra or a famous mexican singer.
I was there early before a show and sat in the second floor restaurant which by the way is amazing. Had the Best Capuccinno. They also have a Corn based dessert which you must try.

“Amazing Building and Murals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Bellas Artes is a magnificent art museum and worth your time and money. The building itself is a work of art as is the theater. I would recommend a tour if you don't know much about the work. The one they give of the theater is good, however I'm not sure if they have it in English, but I imagine they would. Put this on your to-do list if you're going to be in Mexico City.

“Powerful murals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Nothing like arriving on the top step and have a great fist coming at you from the opposite wall. Looking at images of the murals in books shows nothing of the power behind when seen in full size. One can understand after seeing a few, why these artists are recognized as some of the greatest muralist in the world

“A fine Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This venue was constructed during the time of "Don Porfirio Diaz"
Many critics say he was a cruel dictator, but this and many other buildings were made during his period, and at that time Mexico City was called, "The City of Palaces"
Its made of marble, has the biggest curtain made of steel and stained glass, with a wanderfull view of the valley of Mexico.
House of the fine arts, you can see there the "Ballet Folklorico de Mexico", classic music, and several other concerts and operas.
Located at downtown, a place you should visit.
