This museum holds the collections of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and is named after his wife, Soumaya. Spread across two buildings, the newest of which was designed by Slim’s son-in-law, Fernando Romero (with advice from Frank Gehry and Ove Arup), the collection includes important works by ancient masters, the Impressionists, and the largest collection of Rodin’s sculpture outside of France, just to name a few of its greatest hits. It’s pretty grand by Mexico City standards and the Slim family wins major PR points for making the entrance and tours of the collection completely free to the public.
