This museum was opened by Eugenio López Alonso, the owner of the biggest juice company in Mexico, Jumex. It houses his private collection of contemporary art and temporary exhibitions that change every few months. The museum is located in Polanco neighborhood and next door you can find the Museo Sumaya, another architectural icon in the city.
Apart from all the big-name exhibitions, the cool thing about Museo Jumex is that it’s seriously investing in the local scene, sponsoring and commissioning works by local artists and supporting local arts publications and galleries. I really enjoy the international exhibits and getting to know the work of artists that I didn’t know about before.
If you plan to go during the weekend, I recommend once you arrive in the area to get your tickets right away, since they have a maximum capacity at each half an hour and can get really busy during the weekend, especially on Sundays, since it’s free!
The museum has a small, delicious café where you can sit and enjoy the nice weather while you wait for your time to get inside.
