Excellent art exhibits, including original works, some borrowed from other famous museums.Missed the Opera performance due to timing - hours were advertised in Spanish on the website, so we got there late.

There's a nice selection of art ranging throughout Mexican history. The building itself is lovely, the murals are spectacular and the staircase is truly awesome. There is very little English, so bring your dictionary.

Sorry to say I did not see any of her paintings while at the Art Museums in Mexico City, DF. This painter seems to have exhibits in different parts of the world and her paintings can be bought at art sales.
