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.

  • This is a must-see art museum. We were enthralled by the very large murals by Diego Revera and others.

  • One of the most beautiful, breathtaking places in Mexico city, even for Mexican citizens. With a unique history of it's construction (to mark a century past independence from Spanish rule) its architecture is a confluence of Mexican, Spanish and French work. It has both Neovlassical and Deco (modern) art. It ha memoirs of Spanish heritage, Art and culture of Mexico. It has a performance theatre, open to all. If you're a student travelling with a international student ID, you can probably get into one of their finest theatres for real cheap. Built into the heart of the city, it is the most popular spot for CDMX.

  • One of my favorite spots in Mexico City and it's the equivalent to the palace of fine arts. I highly recommend to check what exhibits are open when planning your visit so you can go inside and enjoy the architecture. This building is a beauty during the day and also at night. There’s a parking garage but I don’t remember how much it costs per hour. The museum is open from 11am to 5pm, general entrance is $75 pesos, and you can pay for a photographer permit if you have a DSLR or other camera ($30 pesos). You can only pay with cash on location, no online tickets. Free entrance on Sundays for Mexican and tourists. The admission is also free if you are 13 or younger or people with disabilities.
  • Impressive structure. The metal work through out is spectacular. Open during the pandemic with strict health procedures. The murals by the Big 4 Mexican muralist are stunning. Was amazed to see that Amalia Hernandez Ballet Forklorico de Mexico is still performing. Saw the show many years ago when I was young. Make sure to go to the book store for amazing treasures.
  • The palace is gorgeous from outside. There is lot of hustle bustle around it. It is a total experience. Great location to take amazing pictures. Those interested in art can witness some huge paintings on the wall by great artists.
