  • We walked around forever to find this museum in a very crowded part of town next to the park. Walk past the men playing chess and you will find it. It is currently under construction. We got tickets p...  more »

  • There are not many attractions, one of the most famous paintings of Diego Rivera, that alone is worth a trip to the Museum. Free admission on Sunday.

  • Fascinating journey of the mural from the hotel to the current location. The mural has a great who's who's explanation in both English and Spanish. Most of the rest of the work is from Rivera's last year's while in Eastern Europe, which is beautiful. Small but very enjoyable.
  • A great experience. One of my favorite places in Mexico city. The huge picture with Santa Muerte really impressed me 😀
  • The Frida Kahlo museum gets most of the publicity, so some people don’t know about the Diego Rivera museum. The main attraction is a large mural on the ground floor, which includes an explanatory guide. (February 2018)
  • We were staying across the street at the Hilton where the mural was originally housed. There was an older gentleman who volunteer to give us a description and more detailed explanation of the beautiful mural and Diego Rivera.
  • 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.
