Architecture is off the chart amazing - inside and out. Exhibits are very impressive but not as much as the building itself.

Fancy architecture, once you get in, you should go to the top floor where all the sculptures are, most were done by Rudin, and walk spirally down the floors, with paintings (a few by Van Gough), pocket watches, ivory carvings, and other art collections by Carlos Slim. Free entrance.

Anyone that gives this museum anything else than 5 stars other than for the Ivory collection of who else but the Chinese art (animal cruelty) must not be thinking straight. Whether you are a real art connoisseur or not. It is packed with a myriad of art from allover the world. In fact its almost too much to absorb in... More

First If you arrive you will see this amazing architecture building and start to walk around enjoying all of the sweeping curved lines in the structure. It is also stunning outside from all sides. Don't expect modern art inside. If you like art from last centuries you will love it. This is really a nice place to go, don't miss... More

The collection of Carlos Slim. Nicely displayed but logic of placement sometimes hard to decipher. Lots of Rodin and Renoir.

The building itself may overshadow what it contains. It certainly did for me. There are great pieces in this museum, but I just walked around enjoying all of the sweeping curved lines in the structure. It's also stunning outside from all directions. Additionally, this museum may be free. I searched around but found no ticket kiosk and aside from coat... More

Don't expect modern art inside this modern building. If you like art from last centuries you will love it. If you are looking for modern art, this is not the place.

The building itself is an attraction, especially at sunset as the light reflects beautifully on the curves of the exterior. In a slightly ironic twist, the first thing you see is Rodin's Gates of Hell, well presented but with a very confusing Guinness World Record thing beside it...who knows. Much bigger than I had imagined, modern, impressionist and post-modern at... More
