I'm afraid I can't agree with the reviewers raving about this place. The main exhibit was about Velasco, and unless you are really into 19th-century landscapes and like botanical prints, you won't get much out of the exhibit. About a third of the museum seemed...More

Perhaps I was wrong to hope for an exhibit that included the development of the mural in Mexican art, but this was not available to see (if it even exists at this museum).

Art museum with many important pieces to see, several sections make it easy to walk through it. The building itself is a piece of art (if you like old buildings), it used to be the Federal Department of Public Works. The main hall, staircase, ceilings,...More

I love art museums. A lot of them tend to mostly shut down as they're hanging new exhibitions. But, when they do that, there's usually a prominent sign and/or the people at the admission desk will tell me. Here, a gruff staff member took my...More

The museum is established in a beautiful eclectic style building from 1904 (primary Classic and Gothic) with fascinating interiors. Anyway, the reason why visiting this museum totally worth it are the oleos of José María Velasco, one of the most important landscape-painter of the XIX...More

The building alone is worth the visit. Those interested in the history and art of the Mexico Valley will enjoy the exhibition “Territorio Ideal”. There is the possibility to download a free audioguide of this exhibition (in Spanish). The rest is OK to see but...More

This place has a lot of history, located just in the heart of the center of Mexico City, has some good pieces of art and a beautiful staircase but in my opinion should be free, not really worth wha we paid.

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.
