After visiting Museo Nacional de Antropologia we went to visit this museum. Good thing it was Sunday and admission was free, as we really were disappointed. It is very small museum with only one Diego's mural. If you are really interested in Rivera's murals, Palacio...More

This mural painting of Diego gives the different feeling toward his work in the Bella Artes Museo. It feels like jumping in the street and get to know the story hand by hand with him and other faces in the mural. It is fun to...More

Small, definitely not the most comprehensive collection of Diego Rivera's work, but one single mural makes this place unforgettable. "Sueño de una tarde dominical en la Alameda Central" or something like "Dream on a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park" in English, is impressive. Not only...More

it is accurate...beautiful with historical significance but I expected more and was somewhat disappointed. The pieces added are OK but not spectacular. Too expensive for what you get.

The name of this property gives a false impression; there are much better places in México City to see Rivera's work – they are all over the city. His masterwork, 'Man at the Crossroads', is three minutes walk away from here at the Palacio de...More

Went there near closing. We saw some young adults starting to bring musical instruments in and it turned out to be a music school performance. It was quite the treat to see and hear their amazing music all after the museum had officially closed!

You have to like Diego Rivera to bother going here. But for me it is a great mural, hardly ever crowded and worth the time to see. it is a very peaceful place and there is a descriptive panel to interpret the mural for you....More

I believe all the museums in Mexico City are free on Sundays so I would definitely go here then. It's a great museum, but you're really only going for the mural. There's some other good works but nothing too amazing. Great bathrooms.

He's everywhere but it is nice to see his large murals which are pretty incredible. They paint a picture of Mexican life and are a must to see if you are interested in this. If not, you certainly might be overwhelmed...

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
