The annual "Day of the Dead" exhibit begins in September and draws the largest crowds in the city for such an event.
I visited summer 2007 and was lucky enough to attend a symposium with key note speaker Elena Poniatowska. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The museum had some of the most impressive collections of Mexican Art, especially in their current exhibitions Nahui olin: A Woman Beyond her Time and Moderm Women Painters of Mexico.
