While I was familiar with Rivera's work it was fascinating to see the progression of his skill and style throughout his career. While Frida seems to steal most of the spotlight everywhere else, this is a great place to learn more about this iconic artist.

This museum truly explains the biography of Diego Rivera. This place was in the past the actual residence of the artist, where he grew up. The collection housed here is very extensive and worth seeing.

With another family, we received a private tour, no additional fee for the guide. It was very interesting to go from room to room and then later to view the artwork, some very selective of Diego's. In the remaining rooms, art of various regional artists is displayed offering a nice accompaniment and recognition from today's artist of the Diego's ongoing... More

Lots of great stuff but for me the highlight of the house is the two nudes of his wife & his mistress hung side by side.

I went with my friends to know a little bit more about Diego Rivera, and it was worthy! $20 pesos the fee, quite accesible. The permanent work made by Rivera himself was delightful and rich, and there are also different expositions. It will take at least a couple of hours to appreciate it all, you can't take pictures of Rivera's... More

What I love most? You get to experience something that triggers a connection to the artist, not just the piece of art itself. As you go through his childhood home, you get to feel him evolve as an artist and a person. The best presentation in a museum I have experienced. All big, shiny state museums should take note.

Really neat to see this historic landmark, the house Diego Rivera was born in. The first floor is furnished in with period pieces, although it's lacking any signs for explanation. The other floors mainly have works by Rivera, not many well-known works, but it was fun to see some of his sketches and more obscure early works.
