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

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.

This experience was just okay for me. The building is beautiful and it houses some impressive pieces. However, I didn't see any works from many of Mexico's more famous artists. It's definitely worth the money, but if you only have time for one art museum...More

Top floor very heavy with dark religious works of art but lower floor contains some great art focusing on scenes of everyday Mexico and the geography of the country. Really interesting and informative and well worth visiting. The museum is very central and architecturally outstanding

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.
