When you are in Mexico City, one of the must visit sites, is the Museo Somaya. Carlos Slim, Mexico's wealthiest man, named this incredible museum after his wife, and showcases his incredible collection of paintings, sculptures, coins, textiles and objects of art. Several floors, in all white, wind around so viewers and get close to the art yet have the space to take it all in.
