  • One of the best museums in the City, the gardens, temporal exhibitions and main collection and house are always great. they have special dates in wich they prepare events like in the "día de muertos" or "semana santa". There's also a cafeteria with good food
  • Wasn't amazing for art work but the grounds are great to walk through and enjoy. Worth a visit if you are in the area but wouldnt travel all the way from downtown mexico city for it.
  • Great Museum with some variety in the art work available as well as a nice grounds to stroll through. Tuesday is free entrance.
  • Nice house to walk around. Was a bit disappointed cause frida kahlo work wasn't available as it was exhibited in Florida.
  • Except of a beautiful building ... all was wrong. 1/ entrance fee: 20 pesos for publico nacional, 75 pesos (over 350%) turismo extranjero. What is the difference between human beings? We went there together with our Mexican friends and had a different prices. Why this differencies??? (No English translation, no guide...). 2/ entering the room, you hat to put your cap/hat down (???) Are we in the church? 3/ can not wear my small backpack at the back (???). I totaly understand this in a places where there are many people, small place and you can easily throw things away from its place. But there was non of this. Huge space, everything on the wall, nearly no people. 4/ can not go close to the paintings, photographs (which some of them are miniatures), or to the glass showcas with jewelery (where detailes are the most interesting part) next to the wall as there are alarms buzzing anytime you go closer. I never experienced this. Either you do not show the small objects or make it accesible. I do not want to listen to this anoying sound following by anouncment from the guard I am too close. Go to other museums and get inspired. I can highly reccomend Soumaya Museum. It is for free (for everyone) and you can get close to the glass showcases with no trouble. 5/ some of the expositions were close I had a very nice day till entering this place. Being two months in Mexico, I am sorry to say that, this was the place with the worst approach.
