  • I loved the sculture garden as w r ll as the Remedios Varo exhibition. The building itself is beautiful. It is calm and manageable. It has a nice cafe with lots of suoer friendly squirrels. 
  • It is an interesting Museum, but in a city with so many cultural options should not be his priority, if already visited the main or at the end of the day is close to Chapultepec and remain a free hour, visit there are usually an interesting exhibition

  • This is THE Art Museum to visit while in Mexico City. Amazing modernist building from the 1960's that showcases a permanent collection of the big name in Mexican Modern Art: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Orzozco, Siqueiros and Tamayo. Also a great place to discover other not so-well known (at least abroad) but interesting and amazing artists from the XXth Century. Montenegro, Izquierdo, Rodríguez Lozano, Goeritz, Mérida or Gironella. The temporary exhibitions are usually flawless and relevant, covering painting, sculpture, architecture, fashion or even design. Walking through the sculptures garden on a sunny day is pleasant and rewarding. The restaurant in the Tamayo Museum, just across the street is perfect to have lunch after the visit.
  • This museum was a pleasant surprise. I love modern art and have visited many museums around the world; I must say, this museum can compete with top-notch establishments. They have a handful of works by a few prominent artists; the rest of the collection is by lesser-known artists; regardless, I found the collection to be exquisite. The curator has an eye for aesthetic. Definitely worth a visit.
  • It's a really small museum with four exhibits that are usually very well curated except for one that was just cryptical. I visited while the Balenciaga exhibit was there and it was a good experience over all
  • A museum will always be an excellent place to go. Visit it !!!
  • Mexico City's most undervalued museum. It's awesome!
