One of the most beautiful performance venue in the world. Highly recommend visiting for a cultural event since the interior can only be seen by purchasing a ticket. The Ballet Folklorico de Mexico is good but very pricey. The Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de México is a better option classical music fans but has infrequent concerts.

This is a beautiful place and a must if you are in CDMX. On sunday the entrance is free but you can’t see the hole museum, however what I got to see it was very nice.

it must be more attractive for locals, as they are proud of their heritage. In case you've seen a bit of the world, the murals are nothing special. However, the theatre hall is lovely. All in all the building is much more interesting outside than its inside.

Lovely museum. I'm not sure if the collection is permanent, but it was about indian civilizations. If you are a senior citizen or a student, the entrance is free.

Beautiful building with great art and artifacts inside. Loved the murals by Diego Rivera and Jóse ClementeOrozco. They limit the amount of capacity at a time so that it never gets too crowded. Really enjoyed it and worth the small fee (in pesos = $4.00 US). And, if you cross the street and go to 6th floor in Sears you get the best vibe of the whole building.

Amazing collection of artwork from collected items of antiquity to modern pieces. Rooted in the deep history of this cultural center.

Came to see the murals - just terrific and you can get up really close to them. Seemed to be other great exhibits but we skipped them. Was disappointed that the beautiful ceiling dome had scaffolding, I would have liked to have seen it better.

The Museum building is gorgeous. I was told that this was built to emulate the architecture of Paris. The granite starts at grand hall entrance, the stairs, the walls and it’s vibrancy is only matched by it’s variety.

The artwork is a mixed bag. Starts with provocative pieces and it culminates with the top floor which houses one of the best pieces of art I have ever seen. It’s a must.

We went to the show and then came back for the murals and exhibitions and are glad to have done both. The Ballet Folklorico had an unexpected mix of traditional big-costume dances and edgy narratives that really pushed the envelope in interesting ways.

The murals are on different floors, and the temporary exhibition of artists work and holdings of Mexican folk art were well worth it (although admission was free that day!).

Was able to buy tickets at the ticket office on a weds for the Ballet Folkorico at 1:30p for the 8:30p show that night. If you are visiting Mexico City this is a must see! There are three tiers of tickets, we splurged for orchestra seats but would be okay with the cheapest tickets in the future. The theatre is not too big. Doors open at 8p and they accepted our credit card.
