"Museo nacional de arte" Museo Nacional de Arte - MUNAL Tip by patricia1.nunez


This museum bulding was quite different from other in its architecture. Lobby is really big and especially double stairs surprised me with an arch under those...from stairs thru the huge windows you have pretty much 360°view from the palace.. This palace was built between 1904 and 1911 originally to host Communications department and all its branches..The museum and its permanent collection houses art from XIX and XX siecles..My favorite room was the Maria Asunsolo collection, as this mexican muse was painted in different stages in her life by all mexican artists at the time...If you like museums you cannot miss this one.
