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.

  • I kow--- Diego Rivera. He pays a complicated role in Mexican culture. I just wasn't all that impressed by the Museum.  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.
