Palace Of Fine Arts, Mexico City Reviews
One if not the most beautiful building in Mexico, just to walk in and seeing it from the inside is an experience. Take the time to visit this place and take some cool photos it is totally worth it. If it is season attend to a concert or gallery. Also a cool plus the cafeteria is really nice and not that expensive. Cool for a intellectual date.
Stand outside and check out the cool bldg facades. Then head inside and appreciate the interior design. Then pay the entrance fee and check out the actual art. Definitely worth the 80 pesos/5 US. Make sure to get up to the third floor for the murals.
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 the 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.
Beautiful, well maintained theater. Ceiling murals from well known Latin American painters. Tiffany stained glass dropscreen on stage. Orchestra pit. Great spot to catch a performance.
Impressive Deco building. Excellent Rivera murals. Red pigment exhibit is good although included art is not the best. Life-size photo-op in Van Gogh bedroom is nice touch.
