  • 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.
