Too much of the museum was closed off for exhibit changes while we were there to truly be able to weigh in, but the Art Deco building is amazing! Just walking through was worth the admission. I also want time to eat in their cafe next time we go... And there will be a next time!

I was struck by the similarities with Russian Socialist Realism, yet find the Mexican work more passionate, humanistic and, for me, much more inspirational. And the architecture - oh... More

We blew some money taking in a folkloric dances show at the Palacio des Bellas Artes by the Alameda park--one of those monuments to national artistic pride that seem to survive all kinds of political change. The show was sily, with some strong dancers but mediocre choreography (at one point, a group of dancers came out with pretend rifles and... More

The palace itself is full of majesty and beauty. Inside out qqall types of marble delight the eye of the visitor. The museum, the permanent masterpieces in its halls and the superb concert hall are a must visit in Mexico City. A classic place to visit.

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
