  • This museum is located near the Ferris wheel of the lightweight, totally recommended train station since the rooms are located in a beautiful House that was Dolores, who donated it along with its collection of art. You can appreciate many works of Diego Rivera, as well as photos of Frida Kahlo, in an environment full of Royal peacocks and green gardens, very pleasant visit.

  • Just to visit the house, see the dogs and great art is worth it! We had our own personal tour guide but you can just walk around and enjoy.  more »
  • No Kahlo works, only photos of her and works featuring her. Riveras and O’Higgins are great and the Mexican cultural galleries are fantastic. Bring cash as there are no credit cards accepted for ticke...  more »

  • A really nice museum, on beautiful grounds. The main Diego Rivera exhibits were excellent. There were a couple special exhibits the day we visited. One was a fun colorful exhibit of full size paper mache skeletons in little vignettes showing stages of how you make a film. There is a small basic cafe and the day we visited there was a colorful folk performance for children. The grounds hold about 40 peacocks which roam freely and make for some excellent photos, and an enclosure of hairless dogs, Frida's pet?
  • Beautiful estate hidden behind high walls in the unremarkable neighborhood that has grown around it. On the grounds are peacocks and hairless dogs. We were lucky to see an exhibition of Frida's work in addition to Diego's galleries. Both artists are more diverse and interesting than I'd known.
  • The museum is huge with nice installations. One of the best things are the Xolotzcuicle dogs (mexica dog) and the peacock.
  • Impressive gardens and galleries. The xolos and peacocks are a highlight of this museum. Large collection of Frida and Diego pieces. The small gift shop also has some nice pieces of art to take home; my favorite being the collection of unique paper mache
  • One of the best museums I have gone. It has a very big gallery of each one of the artists. Its perfectly assembled and recreative. Also you can see peacock walking through the corridors of the museum. At the bottom of the place, it is a dog´s shelter where you can find beautiful Xoloitzcuintlis (mexican hairless dog). The caregiver let you to touch them if you want! awesome

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
