  • What I like most of this museum is the work embodied in his Studio (there was) the painter Joaquín Clausell. Now well built in Tezontle and Cantera was the House of the counts of Santiago de Calimaya dates back to the 16TH century is a real Museum, one of those noble mansions of epoch that delights the visitor by its architecture and details, no doubt that worth the visit worthwhile, at the main entrance sports the coat of arms being flanked by a pair of columns with capitals attached Ionians. Inside runners, arches and playground are signs of the greatness of their owners. Attractions to visit in this street: the Church of Jesus of Nazareth (Tomb of Hernán Cortés); The Hospital of Jesus and the Church of San Miguel Arcangel. Enjoy the Museum of the city of Mexico. LIFE... it's a TRIP!

  • The Museum is a beautiful colonial Palace, the museum boasts the library Jaime Torres Bodet (the largest bibliographic heritage about the city of Mexico), the library of the Portico, and the central courtyard of the venue where conferences and presentations, as well as artistic and cultural events are held.

  • This museum includes both temporary shows as permanent. Uses a building there is little reformed and beautiful, Spanish style, I believe. Also has a section dedicated to earthquakes that occurred in the city throughout its history and the tragic consequences that they brought, besides, of course, the fight of the citizens by the necessary structural and moral reconstruction of society. Is very worthwhile!

  • This is a cool museum, worth spending an hour or two in. The staff was friendly and professional. They had a compelling exhibit on racism, and there's an impressive mural in the studio of Joaquín Clausell, which was located in that building during his lifetime.
  • A must if you're getting to know Mexico City and its museums.
  • Outside on the street corner you can find an aztec temple stone making up the corner of this museum.
  • Interesting exhibit on the 1986 earthquake, otherwise, relatively average.
  • Oops well building and excellent exhibitions
