.... it's truly magnificent! And it's free. Nothing really to do here, but well worth the time to walk in, gawk at the architecture, snap a few pics, and continue your Mexico City adventure.

While not a museum per se, it is definitely something you should take stop in and take a look. The building is beautifully restored and maintained

A very old building with the first elevator in Mexico City! A very nice art gallery also! Near the Belles Artes!

I visited the post office today and was floored by it’s beauty. I was on a free walking tour with Estacion Mexico and my guide explained that that the building materials were imported from Italy. You can see evidence of this on the bronze placard on the Newell post of the staircases by the elevators. It was a wonderful short visit. Half of the first floor is a museum and half is a working post office.

This is by far one of the most interesting buildings of the Porfirio Diaz era, reminiscent of the Venetian Gothic style. The inside served as an inspiration for customs/immigration office for the Dead in the movie "Coco" (wasn't told but recognized right away). Worth a glance.

If you go to central district you must see this interior.
The exterior is great but nothin compared to stepping inside.
This is a working post office.

Beautiful building for a quick "wow moment". Some vendors were selling postcards by the entrance and I decided to send a few to my family back home.

Cute little space. It was VERY crowded and that's why it gets a 4 but other than that, very good place.
