The incredible murals are amazing but also the Grand Art Deco building. Best to take the elevator to the top floor and walk down. A great cultural experience.

The Palacio is beautiful from the outside and I found a neat little nick nack in their gift shop. But we decided against touring the upper floors. You need to buy tickets to do so and they do not allow stollers, the elevator doesn't work and our son was cranky. It is worth it to walk in and check out... More

The Museum is very well designed and organized. If you spend 2-3 hours there you will learn quite alot about the ancient time of Mexico. building itselt is a beauty to enjoy. Museum also has a good cafe with outdoor seating, I had a good lunch and rest there in the middle of my tour.

Every artist would love to have their creations displayed in this white marble palace. While we were there Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo had a special exhibition of giant murals. Go early as it can get. Crowded with school kids and tourists.. There is Also a nice park next door if you need a break from museums.

I love the history of the Palacio de Bellas Artes! The art is beautiful. There's so much to see! It was very busy, but there is plenty to see.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
