are cool paintings well that was cool see after our last trip out as is covered in the last video the boys weren’t too keen on going to more museums but this Palace of Fine Arts has plenty of things they could associate with it wasn’t just pictures with descriptions in Spanish there were Olympics memorabilia a huge super-creative murals where they can look at it and give their own opinions on after the Palace of Fine Arts we headed just a couple blocks away to the National Art Museum everyone really liked that as well they had these large installments showcasing a wide variety of creations by single artists basically both places had plenty of art that didn’t need a bunch of description and that’s nice because it would have been in Spanish [Music] okay grow your hair out you don’t like my hair I’m not partial to the short hair though go I’ll grow my hair on one condition that you agree with me it’s getting thicker why would they have to do with anything well it’s just that’s that’s

  5. Your kids seem to be very well mannered and educated. Nice to see them interested and enjoying the mural at Bellas Artes.

  6. Short history note here, that huge painting in the Palacio de Bellas Artes, is called, Hombre Controlador del Universo or Man Controller of the Universe. It's orignal name was Hombre en el Cruce de Caminos or Man at the Crossroads, the original painting (by Diego Rivera) was to be inaugurated in the Rockefeller Center in NYC, but since it had communist background (you can clearly see Vladimir Lenin to the left side of the man in the middle) it was rejected by the Rockefellers, of course Diego saved the original sketches an repainted it here at the Palace of fine arts. Hope this information gives a but more in depth look into Mexican relatively recent history.

  7. Me encantan las familias que visitan museos, mi padre nos llevaba desde muy pequeños y siempre fue divertido hoy amo los museos-

  8. it's called the man at the crossroads and it was meant to be at one of the Rockefeller buildings but he didn't agree with Diego Rivera so he order to be destroyed and the painter recreate it at the museum in Mexico it's done by Diego Rivera!!!

  9. " Welcome To MÉXICO ?? Everyone, Enjoy our beautiful country , Delicious Food , Beautiful places ,Etc ……………………..??????????????!!!

  10. Nice video. The Rivera painting Is called "Man controlling the universe". Represents science as a tool for progrese. Also the contrast between capitalism at His right and comunism at His left. One Is selfish, the other, solidary. He was a member of the party. That's the reason Rockefeller ordered it down in Manhattan.

  11. Hi Jones Fam, The Beautiful "Palacio de Bellas Artes" that you visit begin to build in 1904 till 1934 when was completed ( 30 years to build cause the Mexican Revolution) the marble was brought from Carrara Italy, It's a also the Opera- Fine Arts Hall, the Mural paintings are from Diego Ribera, and Rufino Tamayo artists, the one big mural mentioned ( Man faced) it's called "Men in it's center of Universe" that also was painted at Rockefeller center in NYC in 1931. But was removed by John Rockefeller because Communist faces… That Ribera painted. He was a Communist .He was "Frida Kahlo" husband.

  19. Hello, apologies if you have answered this question before. We have a six week Mexico trip planned for late 2020, my partner and I are going. I have told him about you and your travels. ? he asked how much is your daily expense budget and so that is my question. Not accomodation but just getting around, admission tickets, food, eating out etc. a rough guide will be just fine. Many thanks again for your wonderful vlogs. Cheers from Australia.
