This museum contains an incredible mural by Diego Rivera. If you have the opportunity, don´t miss it. There is a model at the museum that shows and explains the different characters he painted in the mural to make it easy and be able to understand what he painted.

The museum was built to house one mural by Rivera, and although it's a little hard to find, on a corner of the Alameda Park, it's definitely worth the effort.

This small museum near the Alameda features the large mural by Diego Rivera, "Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda". The mural used to be in the Hotel del Prado which was destroyed by the 1985 earthquake. Miraculously, the mural survived and is now displayed here. There are also rotating art and photography installations as well.

Such a wonderful mural complete with English and Spanish description of all the people in the mural. They provide hats you can put on to be photographed as if you were part of the mural,

We were a bit disappointed in finding that there was only one mural of Diego Rivera that is featured, and it was actually the same one printed and displayed in various locations throughout this historic district. We did enjoy our time viewing the mural and they do have traveling exhibits of contemporary artists that were interesting. We just thought there... More

This Mural had previously been outside but was moved inside. To say it is a museum is a little misleading. It contains only one large piece Sunday at Alamadea Park, which is roughly 50 foot long and shows scenes from the park dating back to the Inquisition. The mural depicts all walks of life- vendors, the poor who are not... More

We just viewed Rivera's murals at the Palacio Nacional, which are simply stunning. I was expecting much more Rivera art work at the museum but the only piece, which is gorgeous, is THE large mural. It is worth seeing, but don't be disappointed. This is not really a museum for the artist with many pieces or selections, but a show... More

This museum houses "Dream of a Sunday afternoon in the Alameda Central Park, a 50 foot long mural which takes you through the centuries of history the park had seen, from the Spanish Inquisition to the Mexican revolution. It is absolutely mesmerizing and you can spend a long time dissecting all the characters portrayed.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
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.
