Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain et Espagnol Mexicain.

Museo Nacional de ArteThe building was designed by the Italian architect Silvio Contri, on the site of the old San Andrés College of the Society of Jesus which had become a hospital. The present building was begun in 1904, with national labor and Italian craftsmen. It was completed by 1911. It was originally the headquarters of the Secretariat of Communications, until another building was constructed and the palace was converted into the General Archive of the Nation. By 1982 the sumptuous palace opened its doors as the National Museum of Art and later the Telegraph Museum was opened here too.

Presiding over Avenida Balderas like a fount of history, the Old Hipolito Church still strikes a somber chord.

El Caballito

Perhaps more controversial than Sebastián's big yellow replacement, Charles the Fourth is still riding high.

Interactive Museum of the Economy (MIDE)

One of the most painstakingly restored 17th century complexes in the City, MIDE tackles a tough subject with style.
