Tamayo Museum (Museo Tamayo)

Paseo de la Reforma 51, Bosque de Chapultepec, Miguel Hidalgo, Ciudad de Mexico, D.F., Mexico, 11580

The Basics

Founded in 1981, Tamayo Museum’s noteworthy building was designed by Abraham Zabludovsky and Teodoro González de León. While it’s worth a visit just to see the sleek exterior—many hop-on hop-off bus services and guided Segway tours pass by the Tamayo Museum—the real appeal lies with the artwork inside. There, explore the modern and contemporary exhibits and marvel over pieces by Georgia O’Keefe and Barbara Hepworth. Guided tours are available twice daily for visitors keen to know more.
