Beautiful home / museum!! My Most favorite were the displays of Frida's attire. It's surreal, there is so much history within. The gift shop is lovely, made sure to take a couple of things. Will definitely cherish my trip to Mexico City and visiting this amazing place.

A must!!! Seeing all the dancers in their colourful Mexican typical customes was amazing. It speaks so much about the culture and the people. The songs the ballet danced were happy and inviting. I'm sure many wanted to get up and join the dancers.

The building is one of a kind in Mexico. Built with an Art Deco architecture in the 1930s it houses one of the premier spots in the city for classical music concert venues. The inside of the building is pretty neat (place close attention to the stone busts on top of the exits) but the facade of the building is... More

It is a magnificent building from the outside and just as good on the inside. Whilst we unable to see the actual theatre, it is worth the small fee to go up to see the murals on the upper floors. They are outstanding.You have to pay extra to take photo's. However hard to get good angles as the murals are... More

I've tried several times to go on the tours they offer, but the hours are difficult if you're living/working in the city and you have to be there an hour before hand otherwise you're not admitted. For tourists it might work great but for ppl who live there , it's impossible to go . The tours of anyone is interested... More

Bellas Artes is a beautiful cultural center with a gorgeous auditorium, galleries, theaters, a bookstore and a restaurant. Its architecture depicts the changes made through time to the building, mostly harmoniously blended. It is so worth a visit and attend an opera or a play or find great books.

This place is an amazing piece of art. Every detail is something worth seen. The art work is really spectacular. It is really a place that inspires tranquility. If you are an arquitecture fan, this place is great, as it mixes varios types of styles. It is a must when in Mexico

A beautiful building - very art deco in style inside. Some interesting murals, but not an essential visit when in CDMX. I would not go out of your way to visit, but it's certainly worth a look if you are in the area. The entrance fee is low and the art collection is OK; I did not visit the architecture... More

The Palace of Fine Arts (Bellas Artes) is an iconic architectural structure of great marble beauty. If you like architectural photography this is a must. There is much to relish on from the eye of the camera on the exterior as well as interior. There is a museum, museum store as well as a restaurant cafe to enjoy the full... More

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.
