Not necessarily high on anyone's list of 'must see' destinations in the city. But it should be. Over 200 murals spread over 3 floors. The artwork in and of itself is stunning, the setting is lovely, and it's a real lesson in the history and...More

We saw these murals as part of a Muralist tour offered by Mexico a Pie, along with murals in two other locations. The walking tour was definitely one of the highlights of our Mexico City visit. Highly recommended.

Difficult to imagine visitors to Mexico City not including a visit to the Diego Rivera museum. The scope and grandeur alone are phenomenal, not to mention to artistry. In less than two hours one can get a solid understanding of the tragedy of the Spanish...More

Many of these reviews describe the murals at the Palacio Nacional, but these are the ones at the Secretary of Education, a few blocks away. They have not been restored like the ones at the Palace; however, there are so many that you could spend...More

The large Diego Rivera mural portrays Mexican history from the Precolumbian past. It was amazing to see it in person, but impossible to photograph effectively. The government building that houses it (Palacio Nacional) has fine colonial architecture, although much is off limits to outsiders. There...More

The entrance is free for anyone, and you will enjoy some of the greatest murals from Diego Rivera. If you have a chance, there are always other exhibits inside the building. If you want a detail and personal guide you should reserve with time via...More

If you’re a fan of Diego Rivera you should definitely try to visit this building, which is lovely on its own but is so beautifully adorned with a huge number of his murals.

Wow .... stunning murals telling the history of Mexico. Many well known historical figures can be spotted within them, including Frida Kahlo Diego’s wife.
