The MUNAL, founded in 1982, exhibits a wide collection of Mexican art that ranges from the sixteenth century up to the mid-twentieth century, with a permanent collection of more than 3,000 works. The permanent collection is intended to provide an expansive view of the evolution of fine arts in Mexico but, frankly, the building that houses the collection is as exciting as the art itself. Designed by Italian architect Silvio Contri and completed in 1911, this beaut was the city's former Palace of Communications, and it's a stunning piece of architecture with an interior courtyard that recalls the city's colonial palaces. As you're wandering through, don't forget to glance up at the ceilings, many of which are covered with stunning murals.
