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...More

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

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...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.

This beautiful park was once the playground for the

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
