  • Visit this museum is one of the things you have to do when you visit CDMX. The best of the visit is that inside the room sometimes one can be found with a short Lord of white hair that Jesus is called. He explains all the meaning of the mural, the history of the Alameda Central and, if they are lucky and it invites them, they can walk to the Palace of fine arts tell them history murals on this place.

  • We went to see the works of Diego and simply spectacular, I nominate because you can see various details in the works of the painter, because there's a lot of work of Frida that tb is a spectacle but the same wonder.

  • It is a small enclosure, however, only with the wall is enough to make it worth the visit. It is a mural when you'll pass by alameda central.

  • 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.
