  • I visited the museum a couple of weeks ago and took the very pleasant surprise of seeing the exhibited one of frida Kalho's main works: Las dos Fridas, The way in which this important work is shown allows to know a part of the history of this Mexican sign Or New York and Paris. The excellent curatorship that distinguishes this museum allows the visitor to delight and learn a lot from this unique collection. In addition, we visit another room where photographs produced by Mexican women and residents of our country distinguished by their great artistic quality are exhibited. The museum also has an excellent library and bookstore where you can buy copies of the works on display and specialized literature, as well as beautiful souvenirs. Guided tours can be requested by one of the museum's curators.

  • Small but great pieces and well designed spaces for viewing. I would have loved to have seen more protest/political art since there is so much that is told mostly in art due to problems in journalism. Mostly either abstract or early modern.
  • FREE ON SUNDAYS! This Museum is located in a big, beautiful park, 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.
  • Excellent museum with 4 exhibition centers and a statue garden. The museum is lovely and great to visit. Remember to keep your backpack in front of you.
  • This place its so amazing!! Really you should visit it. Change your mind with this museum.
  • Beautiful museum. Full of art and green areas to enjoy. Interesting exhibitions and friendly staff... Highly recommended to visit.
