Palace Of Fine Arts, Mexico City Reviews
One of the most beautiful buildings in all of Mexico. Unless you have tickets to a show the next best way to visit the building is buying tickets for the museum, which gives you access to most of the building, but not the concert hall. On the second floor there is a marvelous collection of several murals by Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente, and Alfaro Siqueiros probably the 3 most famous Mexican painters. We tagged along on an interesting and informative free tour the museum provides, which helps bring the context and meanings behind the murals to life. Even without a tour I think the murals would still be stunning in their own right. Note: Google currently list the closing hour as 5 pm, but as of January 2, 2018 it was actually 6 pm with the ticket office closing at 5:45 pm. If this was helpful hit the "like" button below.

An absolute treasure of art deco and Mexican murals! Come here to see some Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros pieces in all their glory. It is such a pleasure to stroll through the halls of this incredible building - it's beautifully kept and they let you take cell phone photos for free :)
Very nice palace to visit when you are in mexico city. You can spend an hour or 2 calmly here looking at the amazing architecture and art. Be sure to also admire the building from outside.
It's a good place to see art shows, paintings and cultural activities if you like opera and all these things you can't miss to visit it.
Ballet Folklorico de Mexico is an incredible performance showcasing Mexico's deep passion and appreciation for music, dance, culture, dress, humor and creativity. We loved it. Viva Mexico!
