Mexico City has always been a creative haven for luminaries in The Arts: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Luis Barragan, to name a few. Stay at Las Alcobas, a stylish boutique hotel in Mexico City designed by Canadian designer, Yabu Pshelberg.
Over three days (or more if you can spare the time), we will design a journey into the beating heart of Mexican art and architecture, from ancient indigenous artwork to meetings with the most exciting artists and designers living and working in the city today.
Start by stepping back in time at the National Anthropology Museum. The museum contains significant archaeological and anthropological artefacts from Mexico’s pre-Columbian heritage.
Your time in Mexico City will be curated by True Travel to align with your personal tastes. If you are interested in contemporary art, the Museu Jumex should not be missed. This elegant museum is dedicated to a broad and diverse range of contemporary art. Permanent collections include works from Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol. From here, explore the Museo Soumaya with works from Rodin and Dali amongst its master collections. Or discover Mexico City’s Roma Neighborhood with a visit to the ALMANAQUE Photography & Art Gallery, dedicated to contemporary photography.
If you are more interested in traditional and historical art and architecture, we will select the perfect guide and locations for you. The National Museum of History located in Chapultepec Castle is a lovely visit, and the gardens are stunning. We can also include a walking tour of Mexico’s colonial past, taking in the stunning architecture of the city’s most impressive buildings.
During your stay, we will arrange private visits to the studios of up-and-coming artists. We have an excellent book of contacts in the city that will open doors usually closed to the public.
