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.

Palacio de Bellas Artes reviews
With "ornate designs all over" both on the exterior (from general elaborate features to life-sized statues mounted on balconies & such) and on pretty much all structural parts of the interior as best.... more »
It is a beautiful place, there are amazing murals created by Manuel Rodríguez Lozano, Roberto Montenegro and Diego Rivera. more »
The Palacio de Bellas Artes is beautiful, from the the garden hall to the architecture. There are massive art pieces in the gallery. Although the time I went did not have a big exhibit going on. But seeing the revolution pictures of Diego Rivera was an amazing experience. Pro tip, the ice cream sold outside are delicious. After spending time climbing the stairs, buy some cold sweets and relax in the garden.
Spectacular building with some of the best murals inside including the famous mural of Man controller of the universe. We arrived in city on Sunday morning and were lucky to get free admission inside. The best murals are on the second floor. There was a metro exhibition on the top floor but with descriptions in Spanish only. The building and surrounding areas are crowded most of the times.
