Museo Soumaya


“It’s like fishes” said our taxi driver as we lurched along the clogged arteries of downtown Mexico City. “Is your name Gomez?” asked Anthony, looking at his license plate. “No. Victor. Gomez is my last name.” “Are you brothers?” “Yeah, that’s right. Brothers.” And on we travelled to the Museo Soumaya – which does indeed look like fishes.

Founded by Carlos Slim, the Mexican businessman ranked #6 in the world’s richest people at just USD$70.5 Billion, Museo Soumaya in Polanco topped the world’s most visited private museums, attracting 2.2 million visitors in 2017, though from today’s visit, there was barely anyone there – I guess they’re all at Frida’s house!
