  • A little neglected facilities... Switzerland exposure is very good, but I think that they could have better Collections.

  • Lovely galleries, seasonal exhibits that worth to be watched, and high quality courses make this museum more than that. An auditorium, a place to contemplate, a learning well and a knowledge exchange house of a universal subjects. Isn't it what modern art inspires? Check the billboard and pick an event to enjoy!
  • Old but well maintained building. Lots of personnel to assist, very accommodating. Admission was 65 pesos or about $3.20. impressive permanent collection and an exhibit from the very wikd Guillermo Gomez-Peña. Well worth the stop.
  • MAM offers an eclectic mix of modern Mexican art, mainly from the 1930s onwards. The works are paintings and sculptures belonging to the Mexican School of Painting and the Breakaway Generation: Orozco, Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Kahlo and the usual talented suspects. A great 2 hour visit before and after a stroll through the park.
  • Museum featuring multiple exhibits and also houses Frida Kahlo's famous painting, "Los dis Fridas!" Worth the visit amongst the other museums in Chapultepec Park.
  • I didn't expect to see the original Two Fridas painting there so it was a pleasant surprise. The nude portrait collection was great.
