Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City

4.8
#2 of 798 in Museums in Mexico
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. Immerse yourself in Mexican fine culture at the impressive palace, which today houses several museums and galleries, as well as a theater.

  • Upon entering this place, you can find that you back to two centuries ago where the Gourmet fun and scenic art merge. The Viewer is to be transported to another dimension. I recommend arriving early and know am0liamente its internal and outside intalaci9nes, also from the Torre Latinoamericana will notice its large dome that inside there are stained glass windows that. They announce the beauties of this place

  • One of the most beautiful buildings in all of Mexico. Unless you have tickets to a show the next best way to visit the building is buying tickets for the museum, which gives you access to most of the building, but not the concert hall. On the second floor there is a marvelous collection of several murals by Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente, and Alfaro Siqueiros probably the 3 most famous Mexican painters. We tagged along on an interesting and informative free tour the museum provides, which helps bring the context and meanings behind the murals to life. Even without a tour I think the murals would still be stunning in their own right. Note: Google currently list the closing hour as 5 pm, but as of January 2, 2018 it was actually 6 pm with the ticket office closing at 5:45 pm. If this was helpful hit the "like" button below. Thanks :)
  • A must see if visiting cdmx. The museum inside is small but nice and the murals are amazing. There is and architecture museum on the top floor.
  • This building is a beautiful neoclassical masterpiece with the interior very art-deco. You can visit it without seeing a show but i highly recommend you do. The theater is stunning with a glass dome and many painted scenes. I saw Ballet Foklorico De Mexico in here and it was one of the most beautiful and enjoyable shoes I've ever been to!!
  • Outstanding and a better experience than the national art museum. Amazing art. Dont let the elevator operator scare you away. Top floor is all new artist, student art which is fun.
  • Gorgeous architecture that takes my breath away every time I pass it by. There seems to be new details that reveal themselves every time you pass it. I was lucky enough to watch the world cup in one of the rooms where Korea destroyed Germany 😉 We paid less because the exhibitions were still being prepared but it was worth it to see the stunning murals and walk around the majestic building.
