All painting titles are labeled in both English and Spanish, but since the site offers no guidebooks, it may be wise to take a guided tour to get the full artistic impact. The building houses government offices, so expect no onsite amenities.

  • All Quad more some interiors are painted with murals by Diego Rivera telling the Mexican Revolution but also to shaping society and thinking of the epoch from the Communist point of view. You can call and ask for a guided tour, such as the offices of the Secretary of education, is closed Saturday and Sunday. You have to take advantage and visit the Temple of Santo Domingo and the old school of medicine

  • A fundamental place to understand the evolution of Mexican muralists, and especially Rivera early work. The building is not spectacular, but it is amazing to see how painters took advantage of awkward surfaces to emphasize contents.
  • This place is a "must see". First off, it's free (you must sign in). Go during off hours and 1 1/2 hours before closing and you might get the whole place to yourself. Here you will find an extensive collection of murals by Diego that present a narrative of Mexican society/history; the top floor is a collection of communist propaganda. The artwork is simply amazing. I was moved by the beauty of this government building.
  • Incredible murals. Don't forget to bring your passport to get in!
  • Many nice murals on 3 floors around large rear patio. Entrance on Calle Brazil. Few tourists.
