This museum is the place were Diego Rivera lived and worked and it is interesting for different reasons. One is the architecture- it shows a curious modernist landmark in the heart of San Angel with its cobblestone streets. The other reason is that this place provides you a view of Diego in his work environment. For the moment access is... More

The house where Diego lived and worked is interesting for different reasons. For me the most compelling reason is the architecture: it preserves a curious modernist landmark in the heart of San Angel Inn with its cobblestone streets. Not very wheelchair-friendly, mind you. It must have been difficult for Frida and Diego to go up those stairs.The other reason is... More

This small studio is where Diego Rivera did some of his work. There is a video explaining one of his paintings and the studio is set up to simulate the atmosphere in the painting. Unfortunately a part of the garden, the connected building and the adjacent house with similar architecture are undergoing renovations and are not accessible.

This is a great spot, the buildings are lovely - i especially loved Diego's studio. Barely anyone else was there when we were there - lucky!

No one goes here! Their homes are amazing examples of architecture and the collection of Diego Rivera's personal items is amazing. Free to all on Sunday!

We ended up here by accident, but it was totally worth it to see these studios of Diego and Frida. The cactus fence is, of course, iconic of their studio/home. The main room in Diego's studio is one of the most vibrant and colorful that we saw during our entire time in Mexico. It's a nice walk from here to... More

If you are an art lover, this place has history, where Diego and Frida worked on different stages of their lives. Interesting to see, the architectural structure is also interesting. They have some of their work displayed casually.

The architecture of the house is outstanding and is a must in Mexico City but don't expect to see a lot of pains from Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Plan to go there around noon so after or before you visit this place you can go to San Angel Inn (it is worth to make a reservation for SAI)

Three houses are in the property: Diego Rivera's, Frida Kahlo's and Juan O'Gorman's. Get to read letters from Frida to Diego and vice versa. Learn about their tumultuous relation by walking around their houses/ateliers. Look at old pictures... If you visit San Angel make sure to stop by this small museum. Take a walk around the neighborhood and go visit... More

This place holds Diego's presence. "We are two different people but our love makes us into one, that's why we have the bridge" Frida Kahlo.
