Jose Maria Velasco exhibit well worth the stop. A great artist. The main exhibit space given over to Nahui Olin. It appeals to some. I found it a predictable hyperstated assertion of breakthrough transgression of then-current social norms - aka politics more than art. If...More

If you are an art person, then don't miss this museum. If you are an architecture person, then don't miss this building. And do visit the telegraph museum in the same building.

This museum is one of the most important in all of Mexico, with a wonderful permanent collection and great special exhibitions. Not to be missed if you have an interest in Mexican art of the last 500 years.

We happened to walk by and were interested by the architecture. It is free on Sundays, good security, not super crowded. No pics allowed unless you pay 5 pesos to use your phone. Worth it, the exhibits were great and I would return!

Excellent art exhibits, including original works, some borrowed from other famous museums.Missed the Opera performance due to timing - hours were advertised in Spanish on the website, so we got there late.

We didn;t know many of the artists before we came, but the collection was of high quality, really well presented. Mexico has invested heavily in its art galleries and museums. We were disappointed that the galleries with the Rivero murals were closed on the day...More

Sorry to say I did not see any of her paintings while at the Art Museums in Mexico City, DF. This painter seems to have exhibits in different parts of the world and her paintings can be bought at art sales.
