“Always go to the World Press Photos Exhibit ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Every year pretty much I head to see the World Press Photos Exhibit. The exhibit is always nice and the museum has a wonderful layout and a nice courtyard.

A recommended visit if you are in the Historical Center of Mexico City.

“Very Nice Little Special Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

I went to the Museum to see an exposition my friend was participating in. it was a very modern one and i was surprise to find a huge collection in the building of very old fashion art and furniture. this museum is not big and therefore is very nice and light.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Not a huge museum but worth visiting to see the varied exhibits which are very well displayed - works of art, church artifacts, furniture. Sometimes there are temporary exhibitions which are worth seeing.

“Quirky gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

This museum has had some of the most interesting exhibitions I have ever seen in Mexico (one on kites springs to mind). However, it really depends on when you're visiting, so check the calendar on-line. Also, the permanent collection is Baroque design and furniture.

“Small Franz Mayer Museum Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

The extensive collectiion of antique European furniture and art from colonial times in Mexico is worth the visit. We gave it two hours and that was plenty. We had a good and reasonably priced lunch in the lovely interior courtyard restaurant (if you only want to spend a quiet time eatting at the restaurant without visiting all the exhibits you can ask to pay a lower entrance fee when you arrive) and were glad we stopped to see this charming museum nestled away on a back street in the Centro.
