The building is unique and it is work seeing at night when he exterior shell changes colors. Entry is free. The first floor is a space for concerts and there is a book store/ gift shop.

It's FREE and amazing, what else can we ask for. Also take a walk in the small market across the street, they have modern structures and a traditional mini market in the same area. RECOMMENDATION- Take the elevator and start the tour from the top.

When you arrive to see the place, you know it is special. It is free. The main entry lobby has a few stunning pieces. Then you go up ramps or steps, some 6 floors.

The building is remarkable. The collection, however, is not very interesting. Best admired from outside.

OMG!!! You thought you died and flew to Europe's finest museums. This free museum houses Carlos Slim's private collection. It is gorgeous outside but you'll soon discover the varied treasures in its 6 floors. Upon entering through security there is a desk to check in backpack, you are allowed to take pix without flash. Proceed left to elevators up to... More

This museum is free. It holds El Greco, Pissarro, Van Gogh, Monet, et al. Allow yourself at least 2 hours to see everything.

This is basically Carlos Slim's collection. Once inside the sensational building you see why it is shaped to accommodate the various collections. They coiuld use better explanation and "flow" but the holdings themselves are quite interesting, especially some of the sculputure by artist better known for works on canvas.

This is an architectural wonder. It's design is unique and mesmerizing. The collection is essentially a survey of European and western art from midieval times through Impressionism with many excellent examples from each period.

Designed by Mexican architect Fernando Romero , this museum houses one of the most impressive art collection that we have seen in Europe or the Americas. Great collection of Rodin sculptures including the impressive "Devils Door" and others. Ah.. did I mentioned that it's FREE to enter :-). Enjoy !!
