Not only did we tour this magnificent building and its artwork, we also enjoyed a performance of the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico here. There's a lot of history to be learned from the art in this building alone.

Popped in to check out prices of the Wednesday dance performance & ended up getting free entry to the art exhibition which was very good. The building is amazing. Didn't get tickets to the dance show as we were too jet lagged & it was quite pricey.

Ideally you should visit a performance at the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Failing that, be sure to visit the interior. The lobby itself is gorgeous. The murals on the upper foyers really make the visit though. You need to pay a small charge to visit the upper gallery but it is worthwhile. You could spend a lot of time viewing... More

We enjoyed the Sunday morning Ballet with new dances and some traditional ones including the Deer Dance, La Negra, Veracruz ( with new twists) and Jarabe Tapatio. We sat in one of the first balconies and had a great view. Unfortunately, several viewing did not pay attention to signs prohibiting filming with cell phones which was a distraction. Besides requests... More

The paintings and building are quite peaceful. You have to pay a couple bucks to get in. Then another dollar if you want to take pics. Worth the money though.

The area is lovely, and even if you don't have a scheduled show to see, the building and area are beautiful. And only a few blocks walk on towards Zocalo.

Definitely worth taking time out to stop by and walk around to see some great art. To get the best view, go up the escalators of the Sears store across the street to the electronics section, walk over to the window and behold an unobstructed view.

The murals, exhibits and history here are just amazing. You must check out the gift shop and see the detail of Mexican history in the architecture. It was breathtaking!

A beautiful building filled with Diego Rivera murals. A must for Rivera fans. Contains a reproduction by Rivera of mural created and destroyed at Rockefeller Center.

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.
