Museo de Arte Moderno

Every great city has one… and Mexico City is no exception.  The ‘Museo de Arte Moderno’ or Modern Art Museum here is spectacular for understanding the contemporary art scene in Mexico.  It is filled with incredibly creative exhibits, structures, sculptures and paintings and is impressive not only for its artwork, but its creativity.

It is located very close to the properties and is only two metro stations away.  Actually, it is a great place not only for interesting Art exhibits, but also the grounds are a refuge from the city… peaceful, green and a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon in the sun.

The museum itself has more than 3000 exhibits, and in addition to the artworks mentioned above, it also has photographs and decorations.  It was inaugurated in 1964 and is part of the Mexican Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes.

The buiding that houses the artworks is an example of contemporary artchitecture and is a very important cultural space for Mexico.

Be sure to check their schedule since they have both permanent and temporary collections on display.
