Museo Casa Diego Rivera, Guanajuato
(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you like art. You will probably like. If you expect some history of the painter. You still owe. If you have children it is a boring place for them.

  • 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.

  • It is a magical place
