About the Museum
The National Museum of Art (Museo Nacional de Arte) preserves, exhibits, studies and transmits Mexican works of art produced between the second half of the XVI century and 1954, thus offering a global and synthesized vision of Mexican Art from this period. This museum, the prior Communications and Public Works Palace, is one of the most accomplished and representative buildings of the early XX century Mexican architecture and it is located in the heart of Mexico City´s downtown historic center. Because of its collection and exhibit conditions, along with the quality of the national and international exhibitions presented in its rooms, the National Museum of Art is a space that enhances the audience with new experiences for their deeper comprehension and aesthetic enjoyment of the arts.
