It is worth to go to this museum. It is small but has great art that you won't see it anywhere else.

There's a nice selection of art ranging throughout Mexican history. The building itself is lovely, the murals are spectacular and the staircase is truly awesome. There is very little English, so bring your dictionary.

All though the art collection was large and fairly nice we liked the building itself more. The architecture and grand staircase is worth the admission alone. Like many of Mexico's museum we were disappointed that all of the description were in Spanish only. The city...More

Sorry to say I did not see any of her paintings while at the Art Museums in Mexico City, DF. This painter seems to have exhibits in different parts of the world and her paintings can be bought at art sales.
