AAA Editor Notes
Museum of Modern Art (Museo de Arte Moderno) occupies a circular building on the s. side of Paseo de la Reforma (at Calle Gandhi), near the entrance to Chapultepec Park (M: Chapultepec, line 1). It celebrates the diversity of 20th-century Mexican modern art and also presents temporary exhibitions by important international artists.

The permanent collection is housed in Xavier Villaurrutia and Carlos Pellicer halls. Among its many highlights are works by Mexico's three leading muralists—Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and José Clemente Orozco. Paintings by another major Mexican modern artist, Rufino Tamayo, include “The Sleeping Musicians” and “The Man Radiant in Happiness.” This museum also contains Frida Kahlo's “The Two Fridas,” one of the surrealist's most striking works.

José Guadalupe Posada, José Luis Cuevas and Juan Soriano are other well-known artists represented, along with contemporary figures like Oliverio Hinojosa and Irma Palacios. There is a sculpture garden surrounding the museum. Exhibit information is in Spanish.

Food is available.
