  • An Excellent exhibition of the work of the Spanish-Mexican Artist Remedios Varo is what I have seen in the visit made last February. An impressive surreal legacy that favors the meditation and interpretation of the artistic expression that you have in front. The Museum is located in the forest of Chapultepec, near the Monument to the children Heroes. The Cost is $70.00 (Sunday go free to Mexicans). Timetables: Tuesdays to Sundays, 10:15-17:30 hrs. Enjoy the Museum of Modern Art because: LIFE... It's a TRIP!
