Top Things to do in Mexico City: Soumaya Museum

We recently visited the Soumaya Museum in Polanco here in Mexico City.

This is Mexican billionaire Carlos Slims’ personal art collection and wow is it extravagant! There are 66,000 pieces of work here. I am perhaps most amazed by the fact that a person, ONE single person, has a collection of 66,000 pieces of anything-that’s crazy!

The museum itself is massive and beautiful. It is free admission, which makes it easily accessible for everyone. Greg loved this museum better than any others we have been to and I think his reasoning is spot on–

 

  • The space is used brilliantly. We went on a Sunday midday and while it was busy, the space is organized in such a way that there was plenty of room to spread out and we never felt cramped.
  • The diversity of the art here is tremendous! There is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you like Italian-inspired pieces or are intrigued by sculptures, there is something for everyone to love!
  • The museum is free. That is right-zero admission every single day! This is truly awesome. It allows all different sorts of people to experience art without boundaries!

 

Here are a few pictures of our day as well as a link to our YouTube video of our adventures!

Keep it Kinetic,

Hillary
