  • I'm amazed by the colección Slim acquired over the years. Excelente taste, great variety, and impressive style!!!!!
  • There is no museography, it seems the winery of Slim. The works are unordered and cluttered. It's uncomfortable for people with disabilities. On Sunday there is no shop or cafeteria.

  • Beautiful Museum, has very nice temporary exhibitions. I had the opportunity to see an exhibition of Venetian paintings from different authors. The interesting thing about this expo (for my) was to be able to compare the style of different artists on the same location for his paintings. Good service and no cost entry.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
