This is an easy in easy out introduction to Diego River's murals. We were lucky to be there on a Sunday when the small entry fee is waved. There is display space for other temporary art, but the mural is the big deal. Well worth the 15 minutes you will spend there.

Only the Diego artwork was visible when I went, everything else was under renovations... not really worth it just to see 1 painting

Diego Rivera painted many murals. He was a student of Mexican history and an ardent communist. These facets of his personality colored his work. He was also loyal to his friends and their faces appeared in many of his paintings. These murals start with the coming of the Europeans and go to the start of the industrial revolution and beyond....

The focal point of the museum is a Rivera mural, illustrating the history of modern Mexico. However for me the highlight was a temporary exhibition of a modern Mexican artist ( sorry I forgot his name) that was wonderful and a real surprise. Rush to see it

Fantastic mural that was moved after a fire in its original location. At least that's what I recall hearing. Also an excellent exhibition of the artist Gerard Cantu which was well worth taking the time to see. This is an excellent small museum. And for the Diego mural, you must stop in.

There is only one large, yet famous fresca here. There are rotating exhibits of art which were nice to see. The museum is quite small more or less 2 floors. It is nominal fee for entry and if you're in the area it's worth a stop in.

If you ever felt bored in an art museum, this collection of oversized historic-events in brilliant color and fueled by a scintillating imagination will cause you to get over it if your eyes are still working. Stop and stare. That's all it takes, and your inner juices with get going, at the injustices perpetrated everywhere, the joys the cruelties, the... More

Fabulous insightful mural, one of my reasons to visit Mexico City. English legend to explain all the people featured, but best of all was the gentleman there who gave us all the history and reasons why each person was featured in this mural.

Small museum with a big mural. Make sure Arturo explains the mural to you; he is always there. It makes a big difference when someone points out all the key aspects of the mural.

Neighbourhood Profile
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
