What are the highlights of Museo Jumex in Mexico City?

Before you even enter Museo Jumex, be sure to take a minute to take in the architectural design. David Chipperfield, a British architect, designed the museum to be a work of art in its own right as a massive concrete cube with a unique and striking sawtooth top.

The collection within the museum is notably impressive and features quite a few works from famous modern artists you'll probably recognise. You'll find works from Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, and Martin Kippenberger. Paintings and drawings are the most common mediums used, but you'll find several light and video installations as well.
