Lonely Planet review
One of the city’s first contemporary art spaces, this museum was founded by Yucatecan businessman Álvaro Carrillo Gil to store a large collection that he had amassed over many years. Unfortunately, he died several months after the 1974 inauguration. Long ramps in the center of the remodeled building lead up to cutting-edge temporary exhibits and some of the lesser-known works by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
