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

This place is amazing, the look of it it's just marvelous. There are a lot of ppl always visiting this place, but it's worth it. If you have the chance to go to any performance in its theater just go, the place is just magic.

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.

It is the best place to enjoy classical music or opera. It has excellent acoustics besides being a not so large enclosure , allowing enjoy the presentations in relatively close locations around the palace.

One of the most beautiful structures in Mexico City for sure. A masterpiece entirely made of marble, glass and gold. The auditorium features an almost 20 feet high glass curtain with the Anhauac Valley landscape and the ballet shows with live orchestra are amazing. The mid-upper levels show massive murals by world-class painters Diego Rivera andDavid Alfaro Siqueiros. The uppermost... More

I don't enjoy fotos in museum . At the time I went they were showing black and white fotos. So I regretted going to see the artwork. The building was beautiful . I loved the plaza outside . It's a nice place to rest and enjoy the day.

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.
