This is my last post dedicated to Mexico City, at least until my next trip there!  One of the things on my must-see list was the Museo Soumaya, owned by billionaire Carlos Slim.  Slim’s son-in-law, Fernando Romero, was the architect behind the museum covered in 16,000 hexagonal aluminum plates that stands out amongst the traffic infested streets and shopping mall.  It’s a sight to be seen, to say the least, and I was quite impressed at not only the size of the museum but the size of the art collection inside.  You take the elevator to the top floor and wind your way down ramps to be greeted by some of the most famous, prolific artwork in the world.  The top floor houses Rodin and Dalí sculptures, many of which took my breath away.  Dalí is an artist who captivates me and I had never seen any of his artwork in person, so to take in these life size sculptures was pretty mind boggling.  If you have the chance to visit Mexico City, don’t skip out on this fantastic museum that is free to the public.  It will totally make your day, I promise.  Museo Soumaya and Salvador Dalí sculptures below:
