  • Free, wonderful palace setting. My mission in Mexico City to see Rivera Murals. Go around 5 pm to see the soldiers preparing to take down the flag in the Zocalo. Don't forget your I.d to get in  more »

  • It's worth the long line and the security measures to undergo this murales. Though we found it useful to do this with a guide, because who could well explain all facets from the Mexican history

  • A fundamental place to understand the evolution of Mexican muralists, and especially Rivera early work. The building is not spectacular, but it is amazing to see how painters took advantage of awkward surfaces to emphasize contents.
  • This place is a "must see". First off, it's free (you must sign in). Go during off hours and 1 1/2 hours before closing and you might get the whole place to yourself. Here you will find an extensive collection of murals by Diego that present a narrative of Mexican society/history; the top floor is a collection of communist propaganda. The artwork is simply amazing. I was moved by the beauty of this government building.
  • Incredible murals. Don't forget to bring your passport to get in!
  • Many nice murals on 3 floors around large rear patio. Entrance on Calle Brazil. Few tourists.
