Pay a short visit to Museo Mural Diego Rivera, a small gallery built to house Diego Rivera's iconic 1947 mural, "Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Central." 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.

    This mural painting of Diego gives the different feeling toward his work in the Bella Artes Museo. It feels like jumping in the street and get to know the story hand by hand with him and other faces i...  more »

    it is accurate...beautiful with historical significance but I expected more and was somewhat disappointed. The pieces added are OK but not spectacular. Too expensive for what you get.  more »

    Sweet little museum. The entrance was free on a Sunday and we paid 5 pesos for "taking pics with iPhones" :-) It's only one mural but it's huge with a lot to look at. Just Google and read something about it and you'll be fine, worth a quick stop

    Diego Rivera was inspired by prehispanic murals which were for educational purposes. He painted this master piece in 1946 to decorate the wall of a five star hotel and was moved after 1985 earthquake.

    Nice museum and usually on Fridays there's a typical street mart where you can buy at good price souvenirs and near by is an official store for Mexican handmade sovernirs (Fonart)

    It was worth going to. I loved the area most of all and the galleries are too cheap in comparison to anything in California to not visit.

    Other than the mural there really isn't much to see here, it's still worth it just don't expect much in the way of an actual collection here.

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.
