Museum of Mexico City


The Museum of Mexico City is a space open to the encounters, a spot where the most dissimilar points of view meet. In this space the visitors have the opportunity to get in touch with different artistic and cultural manifestations ranging from: exhibitions, concerts, plays, dance shows, recitals, lectures, book launches, courses, and workshops, as well as specialized guided tours for each one of the temporary exhibitions and about the history of the building. It has six permanent exhibition rooms, among them, the studio of the painter Joaquín Clausell. Inside, there is the Jaime Torres Bodet Library, which preserves, organizes, and promotes the documentary heritage about Mexico City.

The Museum opened its doors on October 31st, 1964, after a remodeling made by the Architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez to the former Palace of the Counts of Santiago de Calimaya, a Baroque building constructed on 1776 by the master builder Francisco Antonio Guerrero y Torres.
