AAA Editor Notes
Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya) is at Av. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra #303, in Plaza Carso (M: Polanco, line 7). Named in honor of his late wife, the Soumaya Museum showcases the eclectic art collection of businessman Carlos Slim, allegedly the world's richest man. The dramatic, free-form aluminum exterior is seven stories tall and resembles a Rodin sculpture. Inside, various exhibit halls display an enormous collection of life-size sculptures, precious metals and framed art from across history and around the world.

Cultural displays feature valuable ceramics and crafts as well as utilitarian objects and implements. Most of the exhibits are very well illuminated and displayed on low stands for 360-degree viewing. Some sections are devoted to specific artists and artistic movements, such as Rodin and the Dutch Masters, while others focus on temporary exhibits. The blocks surrounding the museum, once economically depressed, now boast gleaming high-rise office buildings and apartments, with Plaza Carso (named after Slim's holding company) as the centerpiece.

The museum is located in the northern part of the city, away from the Historic Center; if you would rather not use the Metro subway system, arrange for taxi transportation from your hotel.

Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 3 hours minimum.
