Learn about the life of one of the country's most treasured artists and thinkers at Museo Casa Diego Rivera, set within the painter's family home. Born with a twin brother in 1886, Rivera lived in this house for the first six years of his life, before his family relocated to Mexico City. The ground floor has been made to look as it did when the Rivera family lived here, while upper floors contain permanent collections of the artist's work, including preliminary sketches. A collection of photos of Rivera with his wife, painter Frida Kahlo, offer a particularly candid exploration of the life of the artist.

  • small but interesting collection of art. seeing the birth home of Rivera didn't stir me much but the building and the art contained within are worth going  more »
  • Wasn't expecting much based on the reviews. Most of the art in the museum is from modern day artists and photographers. In the areas with the few Diego pieces, no photos are allowed and there are peop...  more »

  • I love this place!!! I have been twice now and each time is Amazing♥️♥️♥️ I took my Mom & brother they also enjoyed this place. Expect to b here for 1-3 hours
  • It's a must be place for art lovers. The building is huge, i think it has at least 5 stores, an elevator but still everything is still preserved. They have a lot of paintings you must see if you are there and are interested in art.
  • Diego Rivera's birthplace is now an excellent museum honoring the famous artist. Rivera was a prominent Mexican painter. His large frescoes helped establish the Mexican mural movement. Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit and New York City. Rivera had a marriage with Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
  • Even if you're not a fan of Diego he makes this home very personal and there is one quote where he states that he discovered his true identity as a "guanajuatense" or a person who is from Guanajuato. The collection is outstanding and the home is large overall.
  • I wish there was some of his art, you can see some of his sketches. Very cute to walk around but not a highlight of our trip.
