The entry fee is a bit steep (60 pesos) for the caliber of the collection, but I got in for free with my student ID, so I can't really complain. It was a hassle to get in to the museum as the official ticket person...More

This smaller museum can be seen in about an hour. It has six main exhibits, four large, two small. Monstruosismos exhibit was very unusual and interesting. The central atrium skylight is a great photo op! It is an easy 5 minutes from the Museum of...More

Some great ideas here in this wonderful space. Just contemplating the building is inspirational. Some fascinating exhibitions and life stories and Mexican artists either by birth or adoption share their world view. Wooden furniture created by Don S Shoemaker fills most of the downstairs. Statues...More

This is a decent enough modern art museum, but I would not call it world-class by any stretch. I think the sculpture garden is likely more compelling than the exhibitions, which feel very dated, given that they are. I dunno, I was a little underwhelmed....More

It appears that one of the galleries is currently being worked on, there are no works on show by either of these artists. The rest of it - well modern art is a subjective thing but I didn't connect with much of what was on...More
