Museo de Arte Moderno or Museum of Modern Art is distributed throughout two buildings, providing two entrances. One entrance is accessed off Reforma and the other is found near the Monumento a los Niños Héroes (Monument to Child Heroes). A sense of calm imbues the well-lit spacious interior. The main hall exhibits a retrospective of the Mexican school of painting, where highlights include works by Leonora Carrington, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Francisco Toledo and Rufino Tamayo. There is a pleasant café, along with a bookshop and library. On weekdays, children under ten, students, teachers and senior citizens are admitted free. Sunday is free of charge.
