Three floors of fresco murals by Diego Rivera in a beautifully restored classic building with an amazing courtyard containing blooming Jacarandas. No one was there - two blocks from the Zocolo. Amazing.

Amazing work! So much passion and details. Instead of reading a book, you can walk through Mexico's history thanks to Rivera's murals.

No where in our guide books or online did it mention that you need picture ID to get through the gate. This is an exhibition that I give 5 out of 5 to, because I know it is well worth visiting-- sadly, we did not get to see it. We don't walk around with our passports, nor do we take... More

Diego Rivera murals cover a huge quadrangle 3 stories high and people are available to explain the murals' stories to you. This is a hidden charmer.

Take a walk through the beautiful historical district to the public Secretary of Education Building to see dozens of Diego Rivera murals. On three levels surrounding a courtyard, the murals are all very different and very beautiful and in some cases very humorous as well. They are all extremely political as well (Rivera was a outspoken socialist as well as... More

Absolutely stunning. There are 3 levels are fresco's, which awe inspiring. this is a must to visit if you are interest in such works. It was by far and away our most memorable art experience in Mexico City. The building wasn't nearly as busy as other areas, which allowed one to truly absorb the beautiful pieces. The building is open... More

Free, and the courtyard is lovely as well. Go first thing in the morning and have them all to yourself; otherwise the lines are very long and the murals are likely obstructed by other tourists. The exhibition on Mexican history was very large and extremely interesting and well put-together. Also free.

I have been to see these murals several times. Each time I go, I am surprised again by their force and beauty. While there are Rivera Murals at several sites in the city, this is the largest single group. Many of the murals are being restored so you can really see them. (Unlike San Ildefonso where the murals are dark,... More

I read about these murals on trip advisor, and sure enough, we had a hard time finding the place and finally realized it was a small door that leads to the impressive buildings that constitute the Dept of Public Education.. This building is filled with 3 floors of Diego Rivera murals... of all shapes sizes and forms depicting everyday life... More
