This is a must while vistng Mexico City. You can spend hours looking at and reading everything. Or you can make a quick trip threw just to see everything. The murals are just amazing.

I spent hours in this wonderful museum. The building is so grand, I paid the extra to be able to take pictures and it was worth it. It is quite chilly in there, so if you are going to browse for hours, take a sweater.

I think this is one of the great museums in Mexico. Emphasis on painting, from Colonial times to the XX century, and special exhibitions of very high quality. This month there is a very good exhibition from Musee dÓrsay. I specially love the Dr Atl and the Velasco landscape paintings. After your art experience, have lunch at "Los Girasoles" (exit the museum, go left ... right there at the end of the plaza).

It's a wonderful muesum. The building itself is impressive. The pieces shown illustrate different periods of the Mexican art, such as the colonial era, XVIII and XIX centuries, modern times and some contemporary works. It also offers really interesting temporary exhibits, concerts, films, guided tours and other activities for the public. A great place to visit!
