The Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL) (English: National Museum of Art) is the Mexican national art museum, located in the historical center of Mexico City. The museum is housed in a neoclassical building at No. 8 Tacuba, Col. Centro, Mexico City. It includes a large collection representing the history of Mexican art from the mid-sixteenth century to the mid 20th century. It is recognizable by Manuel Tolsá's large equestrian statue of Charles IV of Spain, who was the monarch just before Mexico gained its independence. It was originally in the Zocalo but it was moved to several locations, not out of deference to the king but rather to conserve a piece of art, according to the plaque at the base. It arrived at its present location in 1979.

  • This gallery was prepared to criticize the already forgotten "inquisitorial" torture methods - Despite the fact same methods were applied outside Inquisition through different kingdoms - . Nowadays it resembles dangerous ongoing sexual practices and denied methods to "obtain the truth" that inspire new torturers and worst methods. If you are old fashioned you should watch this exhibit and cleanse on Memory and Tolerance gallery afterwards. Peace!

  • Very nice museum and theme. Well worth the entrance fee. But they do not allow photography; probably because they don't want people posing with, and potentially damaging, the exhibits. Exhibit descriptions are translated to English.

  • Not really interesting . Pictures and the things are only an idea how it used to be

  • Short and very interesting, great instalations and there is a chairs with TV if you are tired You can't take pictures

  • Interesting place
