I have never been to Europe to see the art museums there but I would be willing to be this would impress any die hard art lover. At 60 pesos it is a world class gem.

The museum is on Tacuba street, steps from the pedestrian strip of Francisco Madero. The building is very imposing from outside, but very impressive and beautiful once inside. The collection revolves around colonial and republican art. The museum's collection contains a number of paintings that are famous for their depiction of a Mexican national identity, including a beautiful painting by Jose Maria Obregon titled "El Descubrimiento del Pulque" roughly translated as "The discovery of pulque". The museum is well visited, but because it is a very large building, it does not feel crowded. The gift shop is worth a stop. I highly recommend this museum. Great experience.

The building and the art within it are impressive. It might be easy to skip over this museum with all the city has to offer, but I highly recommend a visit -- even if just a few hours one afternoon. It's proximity to Bellas Artes makes it a nice compliment to a visit there.

A big surprise in the midst of all this modern and period Mexican art is Los Borrachos by Velazquez ... an oversized copy. There are sculptures both classic and modern and one room that could move you to tears over the slaughters performed by the Spanish Conquistadores.

Don't be surprised if there is more than you have time to see in one trip. The permanent collections are vast, and when you add the temporary ones it would be easy to spend the day here.
