Big museum with 6 stages and a wide collection of masterpieces from different parts of the world, including sculptures, paints, pre-Hispanic and colonial era coins, works of art by Rodin and Mesoamerican art. The one I enjoyed the most was the Chinese collection which is impressive, all different forms made of Elephant Tusks.

This museum houses what is arguably the largest private collection in the world of August Rodin's work, plus a fantastic Colonial-period collection of art, among others. The museum's architecture may seem unique and attractive. However, if you look closer, you will realize the owner did not consider its surroundings because the museum is smacked between lots of office buildings, this... More

It is one of the best museums you can find in the world, one of the best collections of Rodan in an amazing architecture, after it you could have lunch at Loma Linda, just infront of it

This is a must go for architecture and history buffs. The 16,000 hexagonal tiles that coat the exterior make up for a truly sci-fi mesmerizing structure. The interior holds one of the world's largest Rodin bronze statue collections and paintings from many time periods, featuring Van Gogh, Renoir, el Greco and Rembrandt. Oh, and it is free forever! Lots of... More

This museum was very closed to the aquarium and the Ferrari Cars dealership, so it had tons of people around it. It is surrounded by other interesting and modern buildings. This museum has some interesting pieces to see. Some of the collections are divided into the other building, but if you have not seen the collections in Europe, then this... More

WAOOO that was just my fist impression when i saw the museum. An amazing structure, very modern, a clean design that leaves you breathless. It was free entrance which was very good, the exhibit was perfect, a lot of art and culture all together at this one place. I absolutely loved going there and learn a little more.

What I liked best about this museum was the architecture, that it was open on a Monday and there is no admission fee. The layout of the artwork is somewhat confusing, and the traffic flow is odd, it's hard to tell which way you should go. There's a lot of artwork by recognizable names, much of it seemed to be...
