Secretaría de Educación Pública, Mexico City
(4.1/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Immerse yourself in Mexican culture and history at Secretaría de Educación Pública. You can tour outer courtyards, stairways, and three floors featuring wall upon wall of grand yet revealing murals representing Rivera's perspective on Mexico's past. 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.

  • The murals of Diego Rivera, whose disciples were part of his art in places of Chile, Chillán and Concepción, are one of the must-sees in this city, especially when the visit is open to all publlico who can admire the historical concept that these reflect in their expressions.

  • We went to see specifically the murals of Diego Rivera... impressive! worthy of see! The hstorias that can see these murals is incredible. The realism and, above all, the point of view of the painter, are reflected in all of his murals

  • 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.
