Directions to Museo Tamayo
The Tamayo Museum features over 300 works of art, paintings, tapestry and engravings made by plastic artists from all over the world. The museum was named in honor to Rufino Tamayo and his wife who donated the entire collection. The building's style is marked by a variety of dimensions in its different rooms; the diversity of its surfaces and especially the unique combination of light, offer a magnificent lighting and atmosphere. The MTAC is above all, a place for critical confrontation and historical review of the international art during the last 50 years.
The building was the first major museum in Mexico built with private funds, with Tamayo participating in its design, which won the Premio Nacional de Arte in 1982. The permanent collection is still mostly the Tamayo collection with over 300 paintings, sculptures and more by artists such as Picasso, Joan Miró and René Magritte.
Schedule: Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
