The Soumaya Museum is magical! It's a huge place full of history, art, and beautiful remnants of from the past. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting for more than a few days. This big attraction takes at least 3 hours to get a good feel for all that it has to offer.

The building itself has a very unique and modern design. There is no entrance fee but, once you go in, you can't bring any liquid inside and if you are carrying a big bag ud83dudc5cthen you must leave it at their storage area. The collections are insanely huge from all around the world.nThe top floor had all the ud83duddffstatues, more than 100 i think. The building itself is next the mall.

Incredible collection, unbelievable for its quantity and diversity. Almost overwhelming. Currently organized by medium / origin. Mr. Slim, May I humbly suggest an all-media inclusive exhibition by era? Your collection would make an impressive historical retrospective.

First, let me say that this museum has fantastic art and one of the best and most diverse collections Iu2019ve seen. I truly believe it rivals top tier museums like the MET and others. Additionally, the framing and layout is great and the architecture is fabulous both inside and out. Also, itu2019s totally free. Truly a great donation by Carlos Slim (who funds the museum) as millions of people who otherwise may not be able to pay admission get to see such beautiful art. It warms my heart thinking of all the people whou2019ve been able to see quality art due to the free entry.

The building itself has a very unique and modern design. There's no entrance fee but once you go in, you can't bring any liquid inside and if you are carrying a big bag then you must leave it at their storage area. The inside is massive. The collections are insanely huge from all around the world. I don't remember how many levels the building was, but it think it was seven floors high. The top floor had all the statues , more than a hundred I think. The building itself is next the mall.

Beautiful museum. We visited on a Tuesday and the entrance was free of charge. If you’re carrying a backpack you’ll have to leave it in a cloakroom at the entrance. It has six floors, each with their own theme. Loved the Mexican art selection.

What a building!!! And what well curated, planned and beautiful collections. A must see attraction while in Mexico city. Give yourself about 2 hours and you'll hit nearly all the collections across all floors.

Impressive from several standpoints. Extensive collection from around the world and through the ages. And admission is free! The museum also has a nice gift shop, and the interior of the building itself is very interesting from an architectural standpoint. Be sure to go to the top floor to see the sculpture collection and the beautiful dome that sits over this museum.

One of the best museums I've been to although sometimes the layout wasn't very intuitive. (Or doesn't exist at all in the sculpture level!)nI could have gone back again the next day, I liked it that much.nFREE thanks to Carlos Slim.

Beautiful museum full of historic art pieces from around Europe and the Americas. This museum is five stories tall so get your walking shoes on. There is a gift shop and cafe for refreshments. There is also one whole floor dedicated to Mexican history.

A must do when in Mexico City. Entry is free and the art works are truly extraordinary.nFloor 5 was my favorite (Mexican art) followed by the ground floor.nMost signs are in Spanish, so I suggest using Google Translate Camera feature to assist with further translation.nRecommend going early so you donu2019t have to stand in line.

Cool as hell exterior worth the visit for the photos alone . Collection insiders a little disappointing. Three floors. Basically, second floor is completely musical history instruments and top floor is a ethically disturbing display of ivory carving which should be hidden and not glorified.nMuseum shop is average.nGround floor has a couple of nice paintings, sculptures and pieces.nnOverall worth of visit and open for COVID Jam 22 when many government museums were not check my other reviews

Gorgeous building and space! Personally more into contemporary art, so didn’t particularly enjoy the art here, however the space itself is phenomenal and worth checking out. The curved walls as you walk to the upper levels are beautiful, and the top floor has a bright naturally lit room filled with sculptures.

Seems like a nice place. Came here the first time today and was amazed by the architecture. Didnu2019t end up going inside though since Iu2019m not too much a fan of museums. Definitely come here for the photos though! The building itself is massive and the structure is quite unique for pictures.

Great experience and great art to be seen. Some really good collections. Covid-19 precautions in place. You'll need to check-in you bag/backpack. Five floors of art pieces! I would recommend a visit if in CDMX.

Great to find that the Museum was open during the pandemic. The line looks scary but it moves super fast. A lot of great art, despite a good part being European. And entrance is free!!

Just because itu2019s free doesnu2019t mean it isnu2019t great or worthy of your time.nnThis is a our museum that serves as a gift to Mexico City from Carlos Slim himself. It is filled with several generational pieces and multiple floors of interesting art.nnDefinitely worth a look. I suspect you can do the museum in 90 minutes or less. There are only a few breath taking pieces that make this spot worthy to enjoy.

You should visit if you are ever in Mu00e9xico city. Beautiful art and so many artists.nnDue to Covid, there are many new protocols, yet the place works without missing a bit. I wish I've had time to stay longer, the collection of Art was like no other. Recommended it!
