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.

  • Only the Diego artwork was visible when I went, everything else was under renovations... not really worth it just to see 1 painting  more »
  • Another obligatory stop in the Mexican capital. The Museum houses the historic murals painted by Diego Rivera. the visit is fast, but breathtaking.

  • Diego Rivera painted many murals. He was a student of Mexican history and an ardent communist. These facets of his personality colored his work. He was also loyal to his friends and their faces appear...  more »

  • 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.
