  • A few meters from the Metro can be seen quickly and well worth a visit for the uniqueness of the representation, although the political references to the characters are far from us. Note that the Center include Diego (child) and Frida.

  • Actually I was surprised the small amount of works in the Museum, is not as great as it seems. Very good guide. Sundays are free ALL the museums.

  • Of my favorite attractions in the city of Mexico, it is very cheap to enter, and is a quick and easy to make. Central location at the Mall.

  • Fascinating museum. Rivera has a very powerful way of drawing and seeing Mexico's history in the large mural is fascinating. Other paintings and murals are just as interesting. Absolutely worth a visit.
  • Bit of a disappointment. Rivera's murals at the Palacio Nacional are more compelling. Worth a peek if you are already in the area and have half an hour to spare.
  • Bonito lugar
  • Small museum with just one mural, but it is incredible to visit.
  • There is only one mural in this building- Diego Rivera's 'Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park.' But the mural is endlessly fascinating- and the museum is well set up to explain what and who you are looking at. If your time in Mexico City is short, I would recommend the murals in the Ministry of Public Education and the National Palace first.
