The work survived the earthquake in Hotel del Prado, and was subsequently transported to the museum. Admire the massive artwork and identify the many notable Mexicans it portrays, including Porfirio Diaz, Benito Juarez, Hernan Cortes, and Rivera's own wife, Frida Kahlo. Besides the mural, the museum also hosts temporary exhibits by local artists.

  • I learned a good deal about Diego Rivera from this visit. Nice to find a small museum in a park—good addition to an already busy day without making a great sacrifice of time. And the mural is awesome....  more »
  • Behind the Park. Took time to reach went on show. Murals are worth a look. I think good in feel sense of feeling that the Museum, go to the Park because there are clean toilets filled with folk art just around the corner. Nieve ice-cream eating in the Park in the evening.

  • Entrance was free. The museum was huge and tourist friendly. English explanations are provided on explanation boards. Great place to learn about Mexico’s history.
  • It's an absolutely adorable place. Very important to see if you are interested in Mexican history - Rivera has shown so much on his mural! The only thing is that all the other exhibitions have been closed at the time we have visited it.
  • A place to visit. Watch in detail each persona in his mural. A lot of mexico history.
  • A small and small museum. Worth visiting if you have a little time. I only got to see the first floor because we came too late and near close g time. The mural is very detailed.
  • So dreamy! They played live piano while I was there on the weekend.

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.
