Just round the corner from El Zocalo, you will find the public building that contains one of the most precious murals by Diego Rivera. It is a beautiful piece of art. In fact, they are many murals. The biggest is on the walls that surround the staircase to the first floor. On the first floor, along one of the walls,... More

An absolutely fascinating display of murals by Rivera, great view into the social and political climate of his era. Amazingly empty, and open on Mondays!

Beautiful murals in an historic building. Well worth the visit. It is easy to spend time getting lost in the details of the art work. Diego Rivera was a brilliant artist.

or any other when in town. The building and Vast mural is well worth a visit even if not too interested in the modern history of Mexico. As one with a mobility problem I should advise you that their are several long stairs but take it slowly and you will be able to manage ok.

If you're a fan of art you know that you must view Diego Riveras murals in this government building. There is no entrance charge and the building itself with all its courtyards is splendid unto itself. Right off the Zocalo and a fine way to spend 30 or so minutes.

This was a bit hard to find but the murals are wonderful. They tell the history of the country. We had a guide take us there and explain them. I'm not sure I would have appreciated them so much w/o the explanations of the guide.

These murals are fantastic. They show the struggles of the working class in Mexico and all over the world against the capitalist bastards who rule our world for profit. The place is near the Zocalo but not so well known. But it's a must if you like Diego Rivera.

On our 8th day in the City, we realized we had neglected this site. It turned out to be one of the most marvelous experiences in our time there. Three floors of murals, painted over five years. No one else there. We were warmly welcomed. And the building itself is worth the visit. Pop into the little museum to get... More
