Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City

4.8
#2 of 759 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 the 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 :)
  • One if not the most beautiful building in Mexico, just to walk in and seeing it from the inside is an experience. Take the time to visit this place and take some cool photos it is totally worth it. If it is season attend to a concert or gallery. Also a cool plus the cafeteria is really nice and not that expensive. Cool for a intellectual date.
  • It is a great place to truly get to know mexican culture and the international interventions on it. The architecture is completely breathtaking that with the murals inside, it creates a complete picture of the different sides of Mexico's culture. Since it is considered a national patrimony, the original structure can be seen which takes you back in time, creating an unforgettable experience
  • The palace was full of energy and action even when we made it there in the evening. The courtyard around the Palace was full of people all different ages and all having fun with music, playing games, and socilaizing. A definite must to visit and take in a performance.
  • We went for the folkloric ballet which was a lot of fun. Loud, exciting and unique. The whole building is also plain beautiful and the bar is decent though I can't speak to the food.
