“Must see”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

There was an exhibition of Brian Nissen's work when we were there, and it was so beautiful..
Besides that, the museum is in the middle of many attractions, such as the Torre Latino on the next corner and the marketplace behind it.
So, just enjoy..

“Sunday it's free!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

A lovely museum with many amazing artists and exhibits. The murals were incredible and told the story of Mexico. Did't take too long to go through but the surrounding palace and Zocalo area could take all day.

“Great place!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This museum is a good place for everyone, whether they are art lovers or not. The building which houses it used to be the Ministry of Public Works, and still you can see some reminiscent symbols of that use.

But as dull as it may sound it actually is an interesting “palace” with its eclectic architecture and the squandering that marked a time known as “Porfiriato” in Mexico.

That said, it has an interesting art collection that goes from the 17th century to the beginning of the 20th and... every Sunday is free.
