  • I didn't expect so much, it was a trip to the center of my universe, silver ornaments, typical dresses, maps, engravings, new artists, known, it was a comfort, this in perfect condition and I loved its corners, a unique experience.

  • The place is wonderful, great infrastructure, trained staff, friendly and polite. I was surprised that every single person in his job position was reading a book and not looking at his cell phone. They have extra activities for adults and boys included in the tkt. M. Rostan's exhibition has a discount with An Iron Palace card, and the library included in the tkt value can be accessed.

  • Definitely my favorite museum in Mexico City. Such a fantastic collection and a breathtaking library, it boasts. It’s not the largest but well-organized and showcased, which may remind you of the Frick Collection in New York. Every single staff is elegant and friendly. The pinnacle of this place would be its terrace coffee shop which comes with a gorgeous ambience.
  • This museum always has a good expo. The building itself is beautiful and don’t forget to visit their small but cozy library.
