Discover the country's artistic heritage at Museo Nacional De Arte, a treasured cultural institution housing a wealth of artworks from the colonial era and onwards. Located in the city's historical center, the museum occupies an impressive early 20th century Neoclassical building, originally home to the old Palace of Communications. It displays a large collection of Mexican art, dating from the mid-16th century to the present day. Themed galleries feature artworks showing the meeting and clash of cultures during the colonial era, the search for a Mexican identity during the Romantic period, and, finally, Mexican Modernism.

Museo Nacional De Arte reviews
Everything from the outside to the contents of the museum is awesome. Centuries of Mexico's art history. Delightful artwork and information. The audio guide you can download at every room is the best thing ever invented. Great place for tourists and locals alike, and even better for students, specially of history or art related degrees. Delightful architecture, art and place to just hang out for a Sunday, for expample. Only one bad thing: Museum's security have no education at all. There's ways to point out and ask for things and these guys don't even know a single good one.
The gem among gems in Historic District in CDMX. Beautiful, majestic architecture of 1920s. Great art expositions, mainly Velasco and his mexican countryside and urban paintings, contemporary artists (some works of Tamayo, Dr. Atl, Rivera). Must visit!
