Soumaya Museum, Plaza Carso

The Soumaya Museum strikes at first sight. Its design is the work of the Mexican Fernando Romero, advised by the prestigious architect Frank Gehry, and stands out for its highly complex curved roof facade with organic shapes, composed of 16 thousand aluminum hexagons. It exhibits more than six thousand pieces of art from the Carlos Slim Foundation, which holds more than 60 thousand works of art, including the largest collection of Rodin pieces outside of France. The open-plan hall connects the six floors of the building with thematic, not chronological, exhibitions. Among the works on display are samples from the 16 collections of European and Latin American art by artists such as Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and Rufino Tamayo; Foreign artists include Picasso, Rubens, Da Vinci, El Greco, Van Gogh, Monet, Cézanne, Renoir and Matisse. Likewise, the museum contains an area assigned to the National Institute of Anthropology and History to display pre-Hispanic pieces as well as coins and notes from the Viceroyalty. The facilities include informative spaces for carrying out all kinds of cultural activities, there are even several specially designed for children that can be pre or post visit, since here it is believed that it is very important to see and assimilate art because this is the best way to understand the world.
