  • First time here and what a delightful experience. Architecturally talking the building is excellent. Clean lines with tons of different textures. On the other hand the work in there is quite appealing and relevant. Modern and contemporary art. One day of the week entry is free.

  • FREE ON SUNDAYS! This Museum is located in a big, beautiful park (with a children’s play area), and there are many outdoor sculptures as well as incredible exhibitions inside. There are guided tours available during the week, and they’re closed on Mondays.
  • Beautiful and nice, if you go to the restaurant inside the museum are the best. Really nice place.
  • Great space and nice on- site restaurant. Make sure to see what artists are being shown before you go.
  • I am a huge fan of Rufino Tamayo so logically I wanted to visit his museum. It is a small, cozy place with 1 room that houses a permanent exhibits of a few of his paintings. The rest (majority of the space) is dedicated to temporary exhibits of other artists. I left feeling cheated since I was hoping for a "Tamayo feast"
