The architecture makes this place and icon of Plaza Carso and nowdays north polanco-los morales. The museum is long and the most beautiful and most expensive items of this collection are in the top floor.

Poshness defines Polanco, this wealthy neighborhood
retains elegance unmatched elsewhere in Distrito
Federal. Brunch in the Polanquito area, then keep up
with the latest fashion trends in luxury boutiques
around every corner. Top it off with beautiful cafés
and restaurants that surround Lincoln Park, a treat to
the senses thanks to the art decó architecture and
high quality gourmet cuisine found here.

I would suggest either Taxi's or walking when your are in Mexico City. The best way to get around the city is by using Uber, but you need to be aware that Uber drivers face problems from other taxi companies in Mexico City.

I know they had the Sophia Loren exhibit when I was there in December, and I believe it is still there. Might check their website, though.
