This museum is well worth a visit. Very interesting and varied collection - including mexican and european art by all the great masters. Maybe not their masterpieces, but fascinating nonetheless. Top floor has tons of Rodin bronzes.

This museum is free and located in the Condessa, nestled between the aquarium, the Jumex museum and TelCel theater. If you plan it just right, you can go to all of these attractions in one day! The museum offers a very small souvenir shop and 6 floors of art. It is not ideal for small children and teens may find... More

The Rodins, Renoirs and many other masterpieces are great, security is really present all over the corners. Next to the museum it's a shopping mall with all the brands Mr Slim is marketing in México-including a Saks Fifth avenue, entrance is free for life according to the owner/ Fundación Carlos Slim

The most of the art is classical paintings, the artwork is layout to fit as much as possible in each gallery, feels very chaotic and random. The collection goes from, sculptures from Rodin to a collection of coins.... If... More
