The Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL) (English: National Museum of Art) is the Mexican national art museum, located in the historical center of Mexico City. The museum is housed in a neoclassical building at No. 8 Tacuba, Col. Centro, Mexico City. It includes a large collection representing the history of Mexican art from the mid-sixteenth century to the mid 20th century. It is recognizable by Manuel Tolsá's large equestrian statue of Charles IV of Spain, who was the monarch just before Mexico gained its independence. It was originally in the Zocalo but it was moved to several locations, not out of deference to the king but rather to conserve a piece of art, according to the plaque at the base. It arrived at its present location in 1979.

Amazing art! The building is even more impressive but the fact they don't accept credit cards or have headsets in english or english translations anywhere made it hard to fully enjoy
I didn't find this museum as interesting as the others in CDMX. It's centrally located and worth popping into if you're nearby. My favorite part was a room dedicated to photography taken by some of the original French and Spanish explorers that also highlighted the building of the Mexican railroad and old Mexico City.
Great Museum. Free on Sundays. Beautiful building.
Always beautiful! Remarkable galleries, awesome architecture, and beautiful square. A Palace to admire! Delightful and wisely chosen temporary and varied galleries worth to spend some time and more if necessary.
Beautiful castle Whit definetly the best collection of classical paints from very knowed Mexicans colourmans
