4.8/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • It is located in the Centre of the city of Mexico, is the most important cultural precinct in the country and there are always interesting exhibitions. Sundays it is free entry, for what it's worth much it worth visiting it.

  • Increible vista desde el balcon de Sears
  • Very nice architecture - I think art Deco - not certain as I am not a specialist in architecture. The murals inside are amazing and great distraction. The admission is free but you need to go to ticket window so they provide you with a ticket- I am guessing for counting # of attendees. Bathrooms are free and clean. There is no wifi. There are people keeping an eye for you if you are taking pictures that you have purchased a special camera ticket (30 pesos) enforced somewhat sporadically as I saw people without any special token attached to their clothing yet I was the only one to be singled out so I either buy the token or stop using my phone to take video and photos.
  • Sitio obligatorio para turistear
  • Not much to say. The jewel of the "Porfiriato" era in Mexico and a must see atraction in Mexico city.
  • Beautiful building with amazing architecture. Best view of it is from the 8th floor of the Sears Building across the street. Plus the park next to it is beautiful and great for a stroll.
