#2 of 846 in Museums in Mexico
Admire works from Mexican and international artists at Palacio de Bellas Artes. Construction on the domed palace begun in 1905, using art nouveau and neoclassical architectural styles, but was it delayed by sinking foundations and a political uprising. When the building was finally completed in the 1930s, a touch of art nouveau influence added to the melange of styles. Immerse yourself in Mexican fine culture at the impressive palace, which today houses several museums and galleries, as well as a theater.

  • An incredible display of music and dance. Though the whole production was incredible, I was impressed the most with the 15 minute continuous drum session. Amazing! It just kept going and going with not one of the drummers (25 I think) even showing a momentous hesitation.
  • You can not miss the visit of this beautiful building, one of the best in the city. Besides being in the centre, it is next to the Alameda with its park and beautiful statues. Beautiful also inside with its marbles and its theatre. It also has a good programming of music, dance and theatre. You have to know it!
