    Amazingly stunning museum, you get caught by it when you first set your eyes on it, one of the most beautiful buildings you'll get to see in the city; and its exhibitions are beautiful and diverse!

    The art is beautiful, and it's completely free. There is free WiFi, and there are 6 floors of Carlos Slim's illustrious and extensive art collection. I recommend it if you are traveling. Es muy bueno.

    a lot of European art, eek. But nonetheless a great museum with fabulous facade and an immaculate bathroom tbh. The food vendors outside are also noteworthy. Get a gordita and a passion fruit drink

    Go directly to the 5th floor for Rodin sculptures - skip the rest. Do try the food stalls outside the museum. They serve refreshing passion fruit drink, tostadas, gorditas and quesadillas.

    the sheer amount of works from many famous creators is more impressive than the museum's concept (if there is such a thing). information only in spanish (also with the advertised app). excellent wifi.

    Free museum and it is a very good one! Huge, amazing pieces, so worthy! Reserve 2-3h to see the whole place

    Inside is not necessary to look at (both architecturally and collection-wise), but exterior makes for a good photo especially at sunset

    By far the best art museum outside of Europe and the US. The Italian and Spanish paintings in the collection make it a must whenever you are in Mexico City.

    Honestly, it's a lot more fun on the outside than on the inside. The collection displays are chaotic and it feels a bit kitschy. But it's free!

    Incredible architecture and for those loving French arts ... 19th and 20th century, you should be happy.

    Arrive a half hour after opening to avoid the lines; photography allowed with no flash; use the elevator to start at the top and spiral down through art of the ages.

    Architecturally stunning but an embarrassment inside. Hummels everywhere and the main show about Sophia Loren's dresses. Dios Mio. Slim pickings indeed.

    Free museum with some of Carlos Slim's collection. Not among the most interesting of museums, but the exhibit on the top floor and the ivory exhibit are worth seeing.

    Has some punctual interesting works by Botticelli, Ribera and Delacroix. The rest I would only recommend it if you’re kin to any of the collection interests.

    Great building but the citation of the displays is terrible. Phones next to dresses next to oil paintings. It’s disjointed and not worth seeing. Enjoy the building and leave

    Its a Museum that takes more than a day to view the large amount of art and exhibits its houses, minimum a full day.

    Stunning building on the outside. Worth walking into the entryway, but no need to see the art. Far too much crammed in there (most packed exhibits I've seen) without explanation or a storyline.

    Free! It's quite a walk to the top, but worth it for the Rodin's and Dhali's

    The architecture is a complete mess; there are some good pieces in the collection but the presentation is sub par as well. Stick to the Jumex across the street.
