I have seen this building during the day, at night, when it's sunny, when it's rainy, when it's hot, and when it's cold. . .and I can honestly say, it is always beautiful. It is an architectural masterpiece conveniently located right outside of Centro Histórico. It has Parque Alameda as the backdrop. This building houses the Folkloric Ballet of Mexico.... More

We saw a lovely opera here during our stay in Mexico City and enjoyed the art that was exhibited as well. The architecture itself is beautiful and worth visiting

This is a beautiful space located in a great spot in the city. It is a quick visit, but well worth it. You can also walk from here to the Diego Rivera museum, the Old Post office, the Casa de los Azulejos, etc.

I had a chance to visit a very correct folk dance and ballet show, where you can really enjoy the fierce momentum of latin folk dance!!!

Beautiful art museum right downtown close to the famous zocolo. In expensive to visit the various presentations, but top floor they surprise you with the need to buy yet another ticket...silly.

I think this is a must-see if going to Mexico City. It is beautiful inside and out. There are on-going and ever changing showings, but the murals on the top floor are the jewels in this crown.

The building is spectacular and the Ballet Folklorico is not to be missed. This is another must-see when visiting Mexico City.

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.
