Passed it many times. Saw it as a beautiful building in a parkland setting. Inside it is just as attractive and well worth a visit. There are a collection of large murals by famous artists and a restaurant for a well earned treat. Don't just walk by go in you will enjoy it.

Although I could not see any performances due to time, the building itself is great to visit. They have a nice gift shop.

A masterpiece of design and sheer beauty. The building is gorgeous. It is well located and has the splendorous appointment of a European city structure such as any found in Pars or London. You must visit. We went on a Sunday and admission was free.

Came here one day by myself when husband was sick. Only the murals were open but it was worth it. The murals are huge and there was a lot to look at.

Absolutely beautiful building and real hub of energy in the evenings with a lively, bustling square. It is a beautifully lit ornate building and to be honest I don't even know exactly what it is used for (great review eh?!) but it is well worth a look, especially by night because of the lights yes but also by day.

Historical artworks by some of the great monumental/muralist painters. An amazing gift shop. A must-see location on any trip to Mexico City.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
