Travel: Museo Jumex
Museo Jumex is a free (yes, free!) museum in Mexico City. It’s beautiful, full of open spaces, and worth visiting if you’re a lover of lines, art, and architecture. We spent about 60 minutes in the museum, the exhibits are huge and my favourite part was the outdoor balconies. Okay, let’s check out some photos!
First, I want to share this staircase. There are elevators, and do suggest you take one, they’re massive. I think they only have one set of elevators and they use them to transport the art, too. It’s an experience. However, don’t forget to take the stairs. They’re stunning.
The art in the main courtyard changes every so often. You might recall a purple balloon dog as the feature before this one. The sun hits this piece and it shines from all angles – be sure to check it out from the second floor balcony, too.
Okay, onto the line exhibit. These pieces are huge, and it’s difficult to capture in a photo, yet they’re delicate yet robust at the same time.
On a smaller scale, these pieces carry on the line theme.
The basement is a bit more colourful! Check out these pop of colour pieces.
The one above I love, and I also love the tile floor. What I don’t love, however, is them together. I would have liked to see these pieces on concrete floor, or something far more industrial that didn’t distract from the art itself. That floor though! It’s stunning on it’s own.
Well, there you have it! Museo Jumex – most certainly worth the visit.
We had a great time – and see the light on that piece in the courtyard?! It knows how to find the light!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend. Happy travels, happy hearts, and happy times! Bye for now.
