  • The Museum is very small, I play to see that they were preparing a small exhibition hall and the other one houses the mural. You thought that you see it in 10 minutes, but simply to see the work you can take more time. The catrina is beautiful. You have two options for the explanation of the mural: a by means of an interactive game type xbox kinect and the other a simple representation of the sketch of the mural with numbering of the characters than in the appear both explanations are in English and Spanish. In a brief visit, you can take 20 minutes. You will not regret going.

  • 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.
