Was in the park to see the castle and stopped in. Was Sunday so no admission. Nice sculpture garden. Decent exhibit of Shoemaker furniture. Interesting exhibit on Japanese-American painter. Had a nice time, but was not blown away. Good to incorporate into a day in the park area.

I loved the sculture garden as w r ll as the Remedios Varo exhibition. The building itself is beautiful. It is calm and manageable. It has a nice cafe with lots of suoer friendly squirrels.

This museum is free on Sundays and not as crowded as the others. There are several very unique sculptures inside, as well as outside. It was very fascinating to see how my of the artists' styles changed over the years and/or as they lived abroad. Signs are in Spanish and easy to follow with basic Spanish skills.

It is a small museum inside Chapultepec Park, so it worth it for the place and to see 'Las dos Fridas' one of the most emblematic painting of Frida Khalo. On Sundays the entrance is free. Enjoy this painting and the park!

I love modern art so this was definitely something I was going to visit. A couple of Frida and Diego Rivera pieces but also a lot of artists I was not particularly familiar with but loved nonetheless. There's also a Balenciaga collection which is great for fashion lovers. It's free entry on a Sunday and we enjoyed our visit a... More

If you happen to be in the Polanco area and have three hours this is the go to museum. The temporary exhibition "Balenciaga" is outstanding. While the B. Traven exhibition is a great and humble recognition to the qorks of this traveler, writer and researcher in Mexico. Finally, the Paul Westheim exhibit gives you a detailed tour over 60 years...

This museum doesn't take cards. Cash only so plan accordingly. It's in Chapultepec Park. We love modern art, so if it's not your thing, I'd still recommend it to see Las Dos Fridas. The best way to tackle this museum is to go up to the second floor and work your way down, then go to the really hip cafe... More
