    You could spend two full days here and not see everything. I was blown away by what I saw and learned in this museum. If you can only go to a couple places in CDMX, this museum should be one of them!

    I found the walk up to the castle a bit hard at my age, but upon arriving loved that I did the climb. Beautiful grounds and spectacular castle with permanent and temporary displays in each room. No concessions or water for sale, so pack some. Allows free entry for senors and teachers, which was a bonus.

    Important world historical site, it is a collection of buildings from the past ~500 years, culminating in the 1970s modernist "new" basilica which is a brilliant piece of architecture. I recommend visiting on a tour so you can get more background and see more than is obvious on the surface.

    Hands down one of the most beautiful buildings i have visited during my trips. Also the history behind it is really interesting. Keep an eye out on the exhibitions they have, some of them are really amazing. Go early morning when there isnt a big line to get in.

    Very interesting mix of museum and old house.
    Narrative about Frida's life could have been presented in a more comprehensive way to make it easier for visitors
    Bathrooms need some maintenance and improvement. Crowed rooms with visitor, no well control of people flows thru the visit.
    In general, it is worthwhile to visit this place to know better life and death of the most important Mexican female painter

    The zocalo itself is pretty cool, but it is also surrounded by beautiful and/or interesting buildings. You can also see where they are doing new renovations on the Aztec temples in the corner of the zocalo. There were awesome Aztec priest re-enactors in super detailed costumes in the zocalo as well, performing cleansing rituals and blowing on jaguar whistles. Fascinating!!!!!!

    This is a wonderful museum with an extensive collection of Rodin sculptures. There are many paintings and other art objects here. We spent at least 5 hours viewing everything. Recommendation: take an elevator to the top floor then walk down the ramps. It is the best way to see everything.

    Such an important site for understanding the scale of destruction wrought by the Conquistadores, and the glorious extent of the society that was there before.

    Very large, very nice park in CDMX. Not sure how big it is, but it usually takes me 45 minutes to make a circle around the gated area. Lots of places to sit and take in the beautiful trees. Fun to check out the vendor stands. On the outer part of the park there are a lot of cute dogs to watch. Entrance is free and its close to a lot of other sites worth seeing. This is a must.

    Located within the courtyard of the secretaria de education publica (current offices of the education department) are 120 frescos painted by Diego Rivera. He was commissioned to do these over a few years in the 1920s and they have been perfectly preserved since.

    Because of its location within the education department building you have to present some form of ID to enter (We only had a photocopy of our passports). It was free to go inside. It was actually a little tricky to find the entrance to the building. The frescos were extensive and impression, although there was not any English translations of what we were looking at and I would’ve appreciated some more context.

    The site is within walking distance of the Centro historico area.

    I felt it was a good use of 1-1.5 hours.

    This National Palace has a museum with various works of art that can be visited for free. The courtyards and artwork, sculptures displayed are very enjoyable and away from crowds of people that are in this part of town.

    Such great fun and a must do!!

    We attended the Sunday match at 5:00pm. I would recommend arriving about 20 mins before to purchase tickets and drinks.

    We decided not to purchase on Ticketmaster after reading other reviews. We used the ticket office at the entrance to the stadium and paid 250 pesos each and had really good seats about 10 rows back from the ring. You have the option to purchase cheaper or more expensive tickets depending on your budget and where you want to sit. You can pay cash or card.

    The ticket office and entrance is on Calle Doctor Lavista You will see the stalls selling merchandise before you go in. You will know you are heading in the right direction when people start asking you to buy tickets on the street!!

    As we arrived for 5pm and finished at about 7pm we didn’t feel unsafe in the area. We took the metro to Cuauhtemoc and walked about 8 minutes to reach the stadium.

    You can buy drinks, beers and crisps as you go in and there are also plenty of sellers who will serve you at your seat too. Drinks were good value 50 pesos for a bottle or 100 pesos for a large (two bottles in one cup).

    The arena was about 30% capacity but a great atmosphere. There were a number of different groups and characters in the ring during the evening and it was great fun to see good vs evil with some jaw dropping moves!

    Since my childhood I have lived in Mexico City but I had never been to this museum so when I went on an excursion I regretted not having gone earlier.
    The museum is large and very educational, I personally like the history of the second world war so that experience made what I had forgotten more valuable. I really enjoyed it a lot, I didn't buy food but living in the city I know it's a bit expensive. Definitely a memorable experience since it is a museum where you learn a lot in an easy way and that you will enjoy if you like history.
