Art, like philosophy, awakens consciences, inviting us to understand and question our surroundings, to untangle the riddle of existence. Art unsettles us; it is a living reflection of society and its ideas. At Museo Soumaya we believe that contact with art enhances our understanding of the world and, consequently, the quality of life of people.

We are inclusive! We have a wide range of educational programs aimed a different kinds of groups.
