  • A little gem totally ignored by most tourists visiting Mexico City. In a beautiful 18th-century building houses a small but formidable collection of drawings, paintings and sculptures of artists covering a period from the 14th to the 20th century. There are works by Parmigianino, Goya, Rubens, Hals, Cranach, Perugino, Potormo, Rodin and this just to mention the artists that I remember. Which were dedicated to him at least an hour. Open every day except Tuesday from 10 to 18, MXN 25 input.

  • Always interesting is the visit to this Museum, which has an excellent collection of painting and sculpture, and not be busy allows you to appreciate the art at your discretion under the temporary field. The building that is installed is a beautiful sample of the great architect Tolsa and sculptor that I bring good amount of works to the new Spain, personally I love the staircase. Enjoy the Museum of San Carlos. LIFE... is a trip!

  • If you are in the area of the Museum you have to see it. The building is a classic of the colony. It has temporary exhibitions sometimes very good, sometimes not so good. Always inspired and learn something here. There are no queues, no waiting. Entrance fee $45.00 and if you want to take photos are $5.00 more.

  • There a few minutes I visited Francisco de Goya exposition, it was amazing. It'll be open till the last days of March
  • Amazing spot near Mexico City's historic downtown, few blocks from Alameda square. This museum (MUNSC) curates European art exhibits all year long, from Renaissance to Romantic and Neoclassical. It's an amazing palace built by the Buenavista Count. Architecture is astonishing.
  • The gothic area is immense and expectacular.
  • Pretty place. Clean and taken care of.
  • Beautiful museum with stunning permanent collection
