Museo De Soumaya - Review
Museo De Soumaya - A Museum in Mexico City, Mexico. In India, a king built his beloved the TajMahal. A similar sentiment applied here when one of the world’s richest men, Carlos Slim Helu, commissioned this startling structure in memory of his departed wife. This is one of the largest private collections in the world, valued at roughly three quarters of a billion. It has the greatest collection of sculptures of its kind in Latin America.The museum’s unique structure itself is a fascinating sight.Though critics have derided he collection for valuing quantity over quality, you won’t find the visitors complaining, especially when they’re allowed to get up close and personal with the exhibits.

Museo De Soumaya, Mexico City Reviews
This is one of my most favorite spots yet. This museum is named after Carlos Slim's late wife. It has his art that he had collected with her. It has some pretty amazing pieces. The Gates of Hell, The Thinker, and so much more. From different countries, periods, a little modern art.
Great museum, great collections on each floor, especially last 3 floors (don't spend time at the bottom unless you are truly interested in coins and religious art). The top floor leaves a lot of people speechless! Problems- circulation around space isn't very clear and just a warning - there's no means of egress, therefore in case of emergency it will be almost impossible to escape the building fast especially from top floors, so you're at your own risk entering that building every time.
Huge structure very unique and beautiful in its own way. Lots of stuff to see. Only drawback was that every description was only in Spanish and hence makes it very tough for non Spanish readers to get thoroughly involved. Huge coins collection and a big art gallery which was a pleasure to go through. Best part it's free to enter
Its a FREE museum, has many interesting works of art and the architecture of the building is AMAZING. Its next to a really nice shopping center. it takes about 1-2 hours depending on how much you like art. bag check is right at the entrance so you can store your bags (mandatory)
Great museum! It's architecture inside and outside is so cool! All the levels of the building have very interesting collection of different kinds of things and art, there's a lot to see and learn. I really liked it!!
