  • The Museo Soumaya is beautiful and huge. Great place to walk around and see some more of the Mexican culture. TIPS: the ride is free, so enjoy. 2) he is next door to the Imbursa, then Acuario enjoy the ride to meet also the Aquarium; 3) you can get a cup of coffee after the ride in the mara Mall next door (which is super chic).

  • This is a must go for architecture and history buffs. The 16,000 hexagonal tiles that coat the exterior make up for a truly sci-fi mesmerizing structure. The interior holds one of the world's largest Rodin bronze statue collections and paintings from many time periods, featuring Van Gogh, Renoir, el Greco and Rembrandt. Oh, and it is free forever! Lots of good restaurants and malls are less than a 5 minute walk.
  • A free museum with temporary displays and collections from several master painters throughout history. Some items are lesser-known works, but it's always worthing seeing a Van Gogh, Monet, Rubens, Renoir, Degas, Rodin, etc. The impressive architecture, inside and out also make it worth a visit. We were able to see most of the museum in a couple of hours, though that left us short-changed on time to see the massive coin collection, including a bunch of old gold Mexican monedas.
  • This place is crazy. Oh, the humanity. 100's of sculptures inside of a sculpture. There are Picassos, Renoirs, and more Rodins than you can shake a stick at. Off. The. Chain.
  • Amazing Architecture and one of the most beautiful exhibitions ever seen about Rodin's Porte de l' Enfer
  • Great architecture; superb collection of Chinese marfil pieces. Don't miss Rodin sculptures on the fifth floor.
