If you are an art person, then don't miss this museum. If you are an architecture person, then don't miss this building. And do visit the telegraph museum in the same building.

This museum really depends on what collections are showing when you go. When we went, lots of the museum was being renovated so unfortunately we didn't get to see much. Overall, there are better/more organized museums you can go to. We were disappointed that the...More

This museum is one of the most important in all of Mexico, with a wonderful permanent collection and great special exhibitions. Not to be missed if you have an interest in Mexican art of the last 500 years.

the neoclassical building is interesting. We were able to see the permanent collections for the colonial period and most of the 19th century. They were not impressive. Most of the paintings were uninspired academic reworkings or local versions of European models. Curious but no more....More

We happened to walk by and were interested by the architecture. It is free on Sundays, good security, not super crowded. No pics allowed unless you pay 5 pesos to use your phone. Worth it, the exhibits were great and I would return!

Excellent art exhibits, including original works, some borrowed from other famous museums.Missed the Opera performance due to timing - hours were advertised in Spanish on the website, so we got there late.

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.
