As the name says, this is a museum of contemporary arts. The emphasis is on Oaxacan and mexican artists but their ever-changing exhibits include work from all over the world. A terrific gift shop with affordable art and crafts.

I am not a huge fan of contemporary art, but if you are, this is a good museum to visit, in an interesting structure on the Macedonia Alcalà. Good gift shop. Free.

If you happen to be walking by certainly stop in. There is nothing I would consider world class in this museum but it is kind of fun. We got in free because it was Sunday and that seemed to be about the right price:-)

What impressed me the most was a project that teamed American artists with Oaxacan artisans, each pair producing hybrid art. The building is lovely.

The museum is little, but nice and worth to see. Unfortunately it was partially closed when we came to visit (they were changing an exposition) but event though we spend an hour watching the contemporary Mexican art.

A must see for those interested in galleries. Fun, inventive and well worth the visit. Great building as well.

Beautiful bulding and a great gift shop, but the art wasn’t my style. I guess the name modern art should have been a good clue.

I am a huge fan of Mexico's art museums, which is one of the reasons I find this one so frustrating. Every single time I've gone there, it's been closed. I hope to have better luck this November.
