Museo Tamayo
Since its inauguration in 1981, the Tamayo Museum has presented the most significant modern and contemporary art in Mexico and abroad. With a dynamic program of temporary exhibitions, as well as a continuous commitment to activate and expand its collection, the museum offers a space for critical thinking where, through art, we can imagine new ways to respond to society’s challenges. The museum was designed by Teodoro González de León and Abraham Zabludovsky, who drew their inspiration from pre-Hispanic architecture.

Anthropology Museum
The current headquarters of the National Museum of Anthropology was inaugurated on September 17, 1964, and for more than five decades, it has fulfilled the mission of investigating, conserving, exhibiting, and disseminating the most important archaeological and ethnographic collections in the country.
From its conception, this icon of 20th century urban architecture was designed to be, more than a repository, a space for reflection on the rich indigenous heritage of our multicultural nation. Its 22 rooms and its more than 45,000 square meters of construction make it the largest museum in Mexico and one of the most outstanding in the world.
This important site houses the archaeological and anthropological testimonies forged by multiple cultural groups over hundreds of years of history; At the same time, it pays homage to the indigenous peoples of Mexico today through a large collection that rescues the uses, representations, expressions, knowledge and traditions that are the intangible heritage of the nation and a legacy that belongs to all humanity.

Museo de Arte Moderno
Located a short walk from the Anthropology Museum, the Museo de Arte Moderno maintains, according to its website, “one of the largest collections of Mexican art of the twentieth century, consisting of around three thousand paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and engravings.” This includes important works by Frida Kahlo, Remedios Varo, Rufino Tamayo, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and many more. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions of modern and contemporary art from Mexico and beyond.
