I had a wonderful tour of this museum. Exhibits are gorgeous and fabulous. I totally recommend to visit this place to all tourists who travel to Mexico and want to learn about the wonderful history of the various civilizations who built the country.

Nice location and decent exhibits at teh Museo CDMX.

The building is quite nice and offers a good ambiance.

The David Bowie photography exhibit was interesting as was the artist's room on the third floor.

I enjoyed a temporary exhibit on David Bowie and a couple of others, all housed in a historic building.

Go up the stairs to see great contemporary art, on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Sully on the second floor with his beautiful, colorful Caribbean paintings, and Climent on the third floor with some rather erotic paintings as well.

The museum itself was somewhat disappointing but there is a temporary exhibition of extremely fine contemporary water colors from all over the world
