Museo Nacional de Arte
No. 8 Tacuba, Col. Centro, Mexico City.
Tuesdays to Sundays: 10 am to 530 pm
30 pesos Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Free admission on Sundays.
This is the city’s signature art museum. Housed currently in a formal-looking 1904 building with orderly, elegant fenestration that offers no clue to the colorful, artistic world within, the museum contains permanent exhibits of the works of some early, pre-Hispanic Mexican artists, as well as temporary displays of contemporary Mexicans.
