Museo Soumaya reviews

Beautiful building, immaculately clean (I have never seen such amazing bathrooms) and fantastic art. A real must visit in the Polanco area after or before shopping the President Marsyck street of... more »
This museum has art work from Mexico as well as a very impressive collection from Europe. There were several works by Rodin, Rubens, el Greco, and the list goes on. Plan on a minimum of 3 hours. more »
Huge fan! The best part is that is for free. If you think the building looks great from the outside, wait to go inside and start going up through all the artistic expositions. There's a locker area where you can put your bags in order to walk in the museum (also for free). My favorite one is the one at the very top: surrealism. Nice stop if you're visiting Mexico City.
Wow there's a lot in this museum. And it's free. Amazing. My favorite piece is the bronze casting of the "Gates of Hell" by Rodin. 20 ft tall, some much detail. Spent 30 minutes looking at it. You'll see it when you walk in. There are a number of floors with a wide incline ramp running along the walls all the way to the top floor. There are also elevators (which I didn't realize until I nearly arrived a the top). Very nice museum. Very beautiful building. I went around 1pm on a weekday in July. Only had to wait 15 minutes in the security line (behind a school group. Now that's a field trip I wish I would have gone one when i was a kiddo!). Thank you Carlos Slim! This museum in honor of your late wife is an absolute treasure and the best memorial anyone could have.
Hello guys, if you are visiting Mexico City, there is another place that you cannot miss: The Carlos slim Elu museum. It is a huge building that will tell you the story of the Mexican people within art. They have a lot of peace of art, the building itself is a master peace of art. It is an amazing place, very clean, with restaurant. You will be exited, by visiting this museum. I visited it with my wife in, till now, we are thinking about it. Make your plans guys! You will be surprised to see the amount of antiquities they have. It is a treasure! Make sure you bring comfortable sneakers because you will walk!
Top 20 museums to see before you go to the big museum in the sky. Magnificent structure. Free admission. Take elevator to 5th floor and walk up to the top where Rodin and friends are exhibited. Then start down. Great gift shop: quality selections, fair prices.
This modern building is beautiful from the outside and inside. There is no entry fees. I did not find anything interesting as I am not a big art lover. The place is filled with different sizes of statues and beautiful paintings.
