Most museums are free on Sundays. The Picasso and Rivera exhibition was excellent. Would suggest at least dropping in at least to check out the beautiful architecture.

Must must visit. The murals are fascinating and the building is also beautiful. They have special exhibitions on all the time, which are as amazing. Go for the Folk Arte show just so that you can see the theatre inside - it is worth it.

I was very impressed by the crystals on the exterior roof, the magnificent 'beaux arts'style of the exterior and all the ensemble. The color of the Carrara marble gives a very sumptuous touch. Do not miss if you're in the Mexico DF!!!

This is a beautiful building in the city centre offering great art, but the main attraction are the murals on the inside of the building.

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

I have seen pictures from a restaurant or bar on the roof across the street looking down to the Palacio de Bella's Artes. Does anyone know the name?

Hi TexasEric, it could the Latin-american Tower or it could be Terraza Deck, which is a bar in the roof of the commercial area, almost in front of Bellas Artes, hope ir helps!

Hi, Debbie. What would you like to know about this attraction? Does the Palacia de Bellas Artes have English audio tours?

Not when I was there.
Para aquellos que han tomado el tour guía (sitio web indica 1 y 1:30 pm), puede pasar por el Palacio y reservar un lugar con antelación, por ejemplo a las 11am, y luego volver más cerca de la hora del tour, digamos 12:45 pm, o ¿Tienes que esperar hasta que comience el tour? Si tienes que esperar alrededor de la excursión, ¿cómo antes de la excursión tienes que estar allí (un martes)? ¡Gracias!
