Contemporary art is within reach at the Tamayo Museum

Settled into the Chapultepec Woods, the Tamayo Museum comes emerges from the soil like a pre-Hispanic pyramid that shelters treasures of contemporary art at its heart.

Before founding the museum in 1981, artist Rufino Tamayo and his wife Olga spent close to ten years acquiring contemporary works. Created by Abraham Zabludovsky and Teodoro González de Léon, the architecture itself has been thought of like an additional work of art for the collection – a stunning object in its own right. Made of white marble and glass, the building is perfectly integrated into the history of the city by recalling the form of pre-Colombian era pyramids. Inside, the works are struck either by natural or artificial light, creating different ambiances.
Stroll through this magnificent pyramid and admire the works of major artists such as Miró, Picasso, Bacon, Botero, Warhol and Lichtenstein. On your way out, take a walk through the Chapultepec Woods and make the most of its lakes, fountains and magnificent monuments.
