Our city has a wide range of museums, these are the best that we recommend in CDMX to achieve a special appointment.
We think visiting a museum is a great date idea. It is quiet to be able to talk, and there are usually interesting things to see and comment on. Maybe you can even show off some of the things you learned in that art history class you took in college and one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be a very romantic and offbeat date.
Fortunately, CDMX has a wide range of incredible museums, these are the best museums that we recommend in the city for a special date.
Enjoy and share!
