Admire works from Mexican and international artists at Palacio de Bellas Artes. Construction on the domed palace begun in 1905, using art nouveau and neoclassical architectural styles, but was it delayed by sinking foundations and a political uprising. When the building was finally completed in the 1930s, a touch of art nouveau influence added to the melange of styles.

  • Awesome exterior and good place to hangout. On Sundays is free admission, but we went around the building on Wednesday. Good photos. There is a coffee shop on the eight floor in sears building, where you have better views.
  • Nice monument
  • An extraordinary museum right in Mexico City, massive and beautiful architecture. Great place to explore art exhibits and spot interactive local people.
  • Plenty of art with influence of Paris. It keeps you wondering. If you look closely you will notice the building needing care. The architectural exterior is worth the trip.
