  • THE MUAC is a reference for understanding contemporary art. On this occasion is the controversial Chinese artist AI WUEIWUEI who was imprisoned for being dissident, the exhibition combines concepts of repression that he suffered in China, bringing to Mexico the famous CASA DEL TE of his hometown and that the Chinese government wanted let time destroy it and on the other hand makes an analogy with the disappearance of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa who were played by thousands of pieces of Lego that were donated by their followers in the world. Worth the exposure and lends itself to excellent subsequent discussion in The Blue and Gold

  • One of my favorite museums of the city. Definitely worth the visit. LOVED the Jan Hendrix exhibition
  • We visited the cafe rather than the museum. Efficient service, but very expensive pastries and hot chocolate given the size. We paid our bill, but the lady gave it back telling us service wasn’t included (we had a drink and pastry, not even breakfast). First time we’ve had that happen in Mexico - if you are happy to pay for it, it’s a nice place, but overpriced for two tiny pastries.
  • The Museum is cool and to form part of University City (CU), surrounded by nature. Expositions with much creativity and artfulness. Besides having environmental and social significance as the exhibition of Ai Weiwei that showing the chronology of 43 missing students in Mexico.
  • Of course a review of an art museum will depend on the works it contains, but MUAC is, first of all, a well-designed space, and secondly, I'm consistently impressed by the thoughtful vision of the curators and the way they use their platform to discuss important issues and ideas in modern Mexican culture and society.
  • This Incredibly inspiring cultural center offered more than I imagined. Knowledgeable staff. Totally affordable. I was in awe throughout the Aei Wei Wei, Jan Hendrix & Melanie Smith show. I could stay there all day and never be bored. I can’t wait to go back. Exciting gift store.
