The Museo de Arte Moderno or Museum of Modern Art is located in Chapultepec Park, Mexico City, Mexico.

The museum is part of the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes and prepares exhibitions of national and international contemporary artists. The museum also hosts a permanent collection of art from Remedios Varo, Gelsen Gas, Frida Kahlo, Olga Costa, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Leonora Carrington, Rufino Tamayo, Juan Soriano, and Vicente Rojo.

In 1971, the posthumous retrospective exhibition of Varo drew the largest audiences in its history - larger than those for Rivera and Orozco.[1]
