  • I visited him many times and there is always very good exhibitions. For lovers of architecture like me, has the bonus of having been designed by the Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, so know the spaces, is an attractive entrance.

  • The Museum is very spacious, when we visit it had 3 separate exhibitions, of which only one can say that it was worth much, and the kids enjoyed it very much. It was very strange and dark, very original. Another did not have much to offer, it seemed that we had come when they were already dismantling it. To the last one I preferred not to enter with my children, because it was not suitable for the whole family by presenting material too explicit (but very impressive) thing that is not clarified at the box office. The Museum on the ground floor has a restaurant (somewhat expensive) firm and a cute shop of memories with a children's section. The entrance is not expensive, and they have discounts for children, teachers and older adults. There is an underground parking.
