Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays.

Not worth it
Feb 2019 • Couples
I love all things gastronomical but this tiny museum was basically an ad for the Herdez company. Everyone was really nice but the exhibits where extremely basic and not all the audio worked. We were in and out in 20 minutes. If it has been free I would have given it two stars but it was not.

I'm a foodie, but....

This museum is a joke, tired and old and stale. A Mexican food museum should and could be amazing, given the country's complex and fascinating food culture. This one was so NOT.

Interesting for food lovers

This museum can take a long time to visit or very little time. If you are not interested in food, don’t go there. If you are interested, then, by all means, take at least 2 hours. If you can read Spanish, then take a day. The museum has many rooms. The first you see is the library. It contains books from all over the world but, of course, especially from Mexico. This is where you could spend the most time. This library will be the first medium that will present the cultural, social and religious customs surrounding the culinary arts of Mexico through its history. After the library, you will find a room that shows the pre-hispanic traditions and legends relating to food preparation, rituals and flavours. Then, the Vice-Regal Mexico, after this the current Mexico and, finally, the future Mexican cuisine. In all three rooms you will see foods and appliances.
Other rooms contain artifacts from all periods and still another, computers where you can choose between many articles such as: Chinampas (floating gardens), how the Aztecs hunted and fished and all sorts of interesting subjects. This museum is located in the Zocalo, close to the Templo mayor site and museum and right beside the Cathedral.
