  • Apart from one or two paintings (one of them by Frida Kahlo) this museum is not worth a visit. We saw it all (two rooms) in about 20 minutes.

  • Pretty limited with only 2 out of 4 or 5 halls open. Small. Cash only. To call it a museum of modern art is perhaps a little ambitious. The sculpture garden was in poor shape. Basic public parks in CDMX are in far better condition.
  • Loved the sculpture outside and interior of the building and pieces on a display. Not very big but spread in 2 buildings and outside . Definitely worth a visit. Only cost about $80 -85 pesos and can be bought over the counter near the entrance 😊
