The price of entry was very low and it had an eclectic collection of modern art installations. The first (and I guess main) installation was huge in scope and had some really interesting ideas.

MUAC is located inside CU (University City), inside UNAM, Latin America's largest and most important university. The museum's architecture in itself is worth seeing, merging with the volcanic rocks that were left by an eruption of the Xitle volcano hundreds of years ago. It hosts...More

Must visit if you have the time, there are always interesting exhibits but the place itself is wonderful. It is built on the original volcanic rock formations that are so characteristic of the south part of Mexico City. The architecture is wonderful!
