  • It is a unique architecture, completely out of the ordinary. See it, appreciate it is all a delight. Inside you will find works priceless best of this world within the Museum, sculptures and paintings are a delight for the eyes. What a shame that the curing of the works is so but so poor, if only hire experts in the field, which Mexico has many, so heal them the presentation

  • This is an okay museum to visit. It's free, which is great. The outside architecture is beautiful as well. I just feel bad whenever I see his collection of elephant tusks carved into intricate Japanes...  more »

  • It's very nice and the best of all, It's free! You can see many years of art and discover unique pieces! Best of all, is near another good places like Plaza Carso Mall, cinemas, supermarkets, Jumex museum and Inbursa Aquarium.
  • Muy nice... Y súper entretenido... Maravillosos cuadros y esculturas!!!
  • 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.
  • Don't waste your time, terrible expeirence. I have been to many museums and I have never had such an unpleasant experience. I went out of my way to visit this museum during my visit in Mexico city and I regret it. I was approached by an extremely rude security guard when I was photographing the interior of the museum, he told me I wasn't allowed to take photos unless it was of the art, there are absolutely no signs that states this, when I asked his name he refused to give it to me and after I approached another guard the girl and asked for the guys name and again was denied, then I asked to speak with the head of security and was told that he wasn't available the second guard, a female, started laughing as if it were a joke. These people are the most disrespectful employees I have ever encounter in any museum, and in no museum have I ever been denied to photograph the structure, If in fact this isn't allowed in that museum they should invest in putting the appropriate signs. Don't waste your time here, Mexico city has many more museums that are far more interesting and you won't have to leave with a bitter taste. Would give it no stars but thats not an option. Avoid this museum!
  • Size of the museum will fool you as there are 5 different floors of art gallery. Really impressive!
