Construction on the domed palace begun in 1905, using art nouveau and neoclassical architectural styles, but was it delayed by sinking foundations and a political uprising.

LOVE IT! Go here to see a beautiful Mexican landmark. I've seen countless operas in the theatre which has one of the most amazing stained glass ceilings and stage 'curtains' I've ever seen. Truly beautiful. Marble everywhere. If you're a tourist I would highly recommend seeing the ballet folklorico here as it is a good taste of many interesting Mexican cultures, and super exciting to watch. If you cannot, at least tour the museum with some great murals by incredible Mexican artists. Marvellous!
My favorite museum during my visit in Mexico. Loved the murals and the great diversity of Mexican art. The place is huge so I didn’t see everything. On Sunday the museum is free but it can get very crowded so you might prefer to pay and have less people. Is at the historic center so lots to see around.
