North American critics seem to love to pooh-pooh this museum as a random collection held in a building built by the founder's son-in-law. For starters, the building is a masterpiece---I've studied it at great lengths from the outside and still don't understand how it works--it's like a magic trick about how much gallery space can be hidden in what appears...

Very modern building and architecture situated in the city center, beside a nice shopping mall. Free entrance. Repository of paintings and carvings depicting Mexico history and culture. There is a floor showcasing intricate carvings on elephant ivory, I don't really like this part because I can only imagine how many elephant casualties happened to come up with this wide collection.

The museum’s name is... More

This museum is well worth a visit. Very interesting and varied collection - including mexican and european art by all the great masters. Maybe not their masterpieces, but fascinating nonetheless. Top floor has tons of Rodin bronzes.

This museum is free and located in the Condessa, nestled between the aquarium, the Jumex museum and TelCel theater. If you plan it just right, you can go to all of these attractions in one day! The museum offers a very small souvenir shop and 6 floors of art. It is not ideal for small children and teens may find... More

Went just to see 'the thinker' and actually lost ourselves amongst the Renoirs etc, etc. This is s beautiful gallery and very well displayed. Catch the lift to the top floor, walking... More
