Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya) Tours

Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya)

The Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya) is more than just another art museum in Mexico—it is home to the incredibly impressive $700 million private collection of one of the world’s wealthiest men. Like a roster of history’s most influential artists, names such as Da Vinci, van Gogh and Matisse inhabit the halls, along with works from Monet, El Greco, Picasso, Dalí and Tintoretto. Lovers of Rodin will take delight in the collection of the artist's sculptures, which is the largest set found outside of France. On par with the world’s most prominent museums, Soumaya is unlike anything else of its kind in Latin America—the towering building itself is a shimmering work of art.


Stretching 150 feet (45 meters) above street level, the building sparkles with 16,000 honeycombed, aluminum hexagons, which reflect sunlight and appear to float. While Plaza Carso in the Polanco neighborhood is the museum’s main location, an older, second location at Plaza Loreto dates back to 1994. Between the two, the volume of art is staggering, offering Avant-Garde classics among its hundreds of sculptures. Thanks to its stunning design, the museum is often included in Mexico City's architecture tours.
