Palacio De Bellas Artes is an iconic building and museum in the heart of Mexico City. Enjoy the large parks, the paintings, and the people watching – be sure to check it out if you’re ever in CDMX.
We stopped by on a Monday, and then again on a Wednesday and both times it was closed. Luckily for us, we saw all the paintings on the Thursday. Plus, it’s only a 20 minute walk from the Hotel Emporio and the stroll through the park is beautiful! Okay, let’s check out some photos.
Palacio De Bellas Artes
On the first day we visited the Mirador Torre Latino and got some birds eye views of the building – so neat.
The art inside, though, is stunning. Check out these massive pieces – a tip below!
Okay – here’s your tip! The best way to see the art, in my opinion, is to not only walk by it and look closely, but it’s also to peer back as you’re walking around the building. Most of the pieces are massive and truly enjoyed from a bit of a distance.
You can see from the photo below that the hallways around the corridor are tighter than a traditional museum. So look back, look across, and just keep looking around, you’ll have a great time!
We spent about an hour at the Palacio De Bellas Artes and enjoyed the building as much as the art.
Check out these smiles after two failed attempts at visiting. I’ll admit, keeping a business updated on Google is quite helpful, yet in this case, the hours were wrong because of the Day of the Dead celebrations. All in all, just happy that when we trip plan, we’re flexible!
Well, there you have it – a quick peek into one of the most recognizable museums in Mexico City. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you again soon and safe travels.
