Jumex Museum (Museo Jumex)

Blvd. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra 303, Miguel Hidalgo, Ciudad de México, CDMX, 11520

The Basics

One of Polanco’s many impressive art museums, the Jumex Museum exterior is a common sight on walking tours of the neighborhood and easy to spot from the top deck of a hop-on hop-off bus. Visit independently and wander the exhibits alone or book an English-language tour of the 15,000-square-foot (1,393-square-meter) space in advance. With five floors--including a library, café, gallery space, and terrace--there’s plenty to keep you occupied for a couple of hours.

When to Get There

The Museo Jumex is, like many other Mexico City museums, closed on Mondays. However, it’s typically open from the mid-morning until the late afternoon or early evening throughout the rest of the week. Weekends tend to be busier than weekdays, as do new exhibition openings. Sundays are especially busy, as the museum is free to enter for all.

Soumaya Museum

Situated right across the street, the Carlos Slim–owned Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya) is another must-visit in the Polanco neighborhood. Instantly recognizable for its shimmering, sinuous architecture, the Soumaya houses a private collection of artwork from both Mexican and European masters. Combine the two on your next visit for an art-filled afternoon.
