This is worth a visit. We got in free because over 60, but the entrance fee is negotiable (free on Sundays anyway). The palace is every bit as good as most stately homes in the UK, it seems to be fully furnished with originals rather...More

The walk up is quite scenic (and far). Interesting blend of architecture, history and culture. Great views of the city from the courtyard.

Beautiful architecture and stunning views of the area, on a good day. Interesting history of power struggle and ties to European empire

The temporary exhibits were not at the we came to expect in Mexico City, but the permanent collection and rooms open to the public gave a fine introduction to the history of the city and state, particularly in the nineteenth century.
