  • The Museum is interesting because it shows where the painter Diego Rivera was born and spent his childhood in addition to expose many of his works. The Museum Organization leaves something to be desired, but it's still a good ride.

  • It's an interesting glimpse into the early life and work of Diego Rivera, but far from the best museum on the planet. The price of admission is cheap, so it's worth a visit.

  • I liked the Museum House is large, you can find works of the artist at an affordable price, I recommend you bring student credential to make them discount.
