The Museum is very well designed and organized. If you spend 2-3 hours there you will learn quite alot about the ancient time of Mexico. building itselt is a beauty to enjoy. Museum also has a good cafe with outdoor seating, I had a good lunch and rest there in the middle of my tour.

Every artist would love to have their creations displayed in this white marble palace. While we were there Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo had a special exhibition of giant murals. Go early as it can get. Crowded with school kids and tourists.. There is Also a nice park next door if you need a break from museums.

I love the history of the Palacio de Bellas Artes! The art is beautiful. There's so much to see! It was very busy, but there is plenty to see.

By all means this should be a must see. Take the time to do a walk through of the exhibits and look at the gorgeous architecture. Lunch here would also be a treat! We bought tickets to Ballet Folklorica de Mexico. Another very special treat. this is a bit pricy by Mexican standards and must be paid in cash, but... More

The inside theater is just amazing. The crystal curtain is unique, and also there are a lot of exhibitions all year round inside the building. This is a must place to go for all visitors in CDMX

Our apartment rental was right across the street so we had a view of this magnificent building in the morning when we woke up and last thing at night. We were able to get tickets for the symphony during our stay and it was a once in a lifetime experience to sit in the loge listening to the music and... More

The Palacio is an architectural Jewel built in the 1930's during the years Lazaro Cardenas was President of Mexico. Even though the building is slowly sinking due to the conditions of the subfloor, The Palacio retains the allure and beauty of a grand palace, covered with marble and set in a delightful little plaza. Inside one can view some of... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
