We enjoyed the building but the art was limited to other artists with little art from Diego Rivera. A quick detour and fun enough but just OK.

If you're interested in Diego Rivera, you'll want to visit the home where he lived as a young boy. Diego Rivera, who became world famous, was a native son of Guanajuato, and it's interesting to see where he started, as a young boy.

This spot is an excellent place to begin your education on the artist. He lived her for the first six years of his life. Several of his paintings are on the second floor. There's an elevator over in the corner in case you can't walk...More
