Museo Soumaya

Six-storey monument to centuries of Mesoamerican and European art and history

Split between two buildings, the newer, glimmering aluminium clad Fernando Romero-designed structure at Plaza Carso is the undeniable draw of Museo Soumaya. An altruistic venture by owner Carlos Slim to raise the “humanistic capital” of the city, the free-entry museum houses some 66,000 pieces. Works as diverse as pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican sculptures and European old masters, plus Slim’s oft talked about collection of Rodin sculptures. Museo Soumaya sits as a striking beacon of culture, regardless of the divergent opinions surrounding the owner.
