From the outside you expect something extraordinary. The curator has done a terrible job. Poorly conceived and planned!

The museum itself is beautiful. I love the inside of it. The collections are very interesting from paintings, to sculptures, ivory and artifacts. Make sure that you go all the way to the top and try not to use the elevator to really appreciate the...More

The museum itself is free and definitely was worth the drive. There are multiple levels, personally I recommend people to start from the top then make your way down. There are so many varieties of paintings, sculptures and artefacts shown in this museum. We were...More

A collection of impressive and priceless art. There's a great timeline along the spiralling walkways, paralleling Mexico art and culture with world events.

Being the richest man in Mexico, this museum proves, does not guarantee that Carlos Slim has the best artistic taste. The building that houses his frankly mediocre collection, however, is stunning, and is worth a visit in its own right. Go!

It’s right in the polanco however i don’t recommend to bring children. The unique building and the roses around the museum are one of the attractions.

An incredible structure to behold - it really must be seen to be believed. When I went the entire top floor was filled with Rodin sculptures and the like. It was free - just go. It's on a steady ramped incline inside - I like...More

Poshness defines Polanco, this wealthy neighborhood
retains elegance unmatched elsewhere in Distrito
Federal. Brunch in the Polanquito area, then keep up
with the latest fashion trends in luxury boutiques
around every corner. Top it off with beautiful cafés
and restaurants that surround Lincoln Park, a treat to
the senses thanks to the art decó architecture and
high quality gourmet cuisine found here.

I would suggest either Taxi's or walking when your are in Mexico City. The best way to get around the city is by using Uber, but you need to be aware that Uber drivers face problems from other taxi companies in Mexico City.
