It's really worth a visit. But be aware of the hours. Last time I was there we had about 15 minutes to see everything because the close early.

There are two things any visitor to Mexico City shouldn't miss: The Anthropology Museum, and the Palace of Fine Arts. Being built between the early years of the 20th century and the 1930's, it's a very nice sample of Art Deco, and has several rooms for the performance of music, from chamber, up to symphony orchestras. It also holds temporal visual arts exhibitions. However, it's mostly one of the best opera houses in the continent, having excellent acoustics. On Sundays you must attend the "Amalia Hernández Folkloric Ballet," which is one of the few instances when they lower the Tiffany's stained glass screen, with a representation of the Popocateptl and Iztaccihuatl, the two iconic volcanoes at the edge of the Valley of Mexico. The ballet is a sample of the music from different regions of the country, along different phases of it's history. Regarding the music of the Mexican Revolution, I couldn't help but remembering similar feats in Chinese ballet in the times of Mao, although the political context is quite different. The ballet includes carnival segments, in which the public is invited to interact, and the whole thing ends in a traditional Mexican Fiesta. Very enjoyable for people of all ages.
