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.

  • Great experience that I couldn't believe was free. This might come as a surprise but pretty much everywhere in Mexico there's always something to pay, there's always something they will try to charge you for and this incredible museum was completely free!! Not only that, the gallery was displaying beautiful art, from beautiful European paintings to incredible ivory Asian sculptures! If you love art, it's a must see in MEXICO CITY!

  • A really unique art experience is driven at the Soumaya by the shape of the building itself. While the museum is set up to start from the ground floor up, we did the opposite starting with the top floor filled with Rodin, Daumier and even some Bonaparte artifacts. A bonus is the painting situated within the room permitting a view of both what the artist intended as well as the subsequent commercial journey the paintings take en route to Soumaya.

  • An absolutely beautiful place to be. There are so many beautiful and sophisticated pieces that can invoke pretty powerful feelings. We rushed through the exhibits to make it in time for a reservation at a restaurant but had we had more time, it is easy to spend hours here. Best part is the lack of an entrance fee, perhaps start one and give the proceeds to charity?

  • Great museum and the entrance was free. I personally didn't like the first floors, especially the second one, with asian Ivory art. It was very disturbing to see theses sculptures carved in elephant's tusk who probably got killed for that. Otherwise the paintings exhibits upstairs were stunning and interesting.

  • I am giving this 5 stars, but it needs some context. I applaud CDMX for supporting the Arts and elevating the culture further by offering stunning Rodin replicas. The Gates of Hell was pretty impressive. But it all felt a bit short of a world-class museum. For example, there are ill-placed walls that obstruct the viewing of some the Impressionist Painters. Or maybe the paintings weren't in the best spots, but overall it is an impressive museum that locals and tourist seem to adore. I see it as a platform for something greater.
