Fodor's Review

Though not always on display, the private collection here contains early murals by Orozco (with 50 works, this is one of the best Orozco collections you'll find anywhere), Rivera, and Siqueiros, and works by modern European artists such as Klee and Picasso; with its temporary exhibitions of contemporary international artists it's often considered the most important contemporary-art center in the city. It's a good place to learn about vanguard art. This museum is considerably superior in terms of design and natural lighting to the city's better-known Museo Nacional de Arte Moderno.
