I spent a very enjoyable hour wandering through this museum. As well as extensive art works by Diego Rivera, you also get a profound insight into his formative years when he lived here with his family until the age of six.

This museum was interesting, in part, because it is the converted home of Diego Rivera. I do not know a lot about art, but have always loved Rivera's famous murals. This museum showed me pieces from other periods in his life and helped paint a bit of a picture of his transformation as an artist. There were also temporary displays... More

First floor is devoted to the home where the artist was born & lived for 6 years. The 2nd and 3rd floors are devoted to his artwork. I love Diego Rivera's art.

It's not so much Diego Rivera lived here much as its where he was raised as a young child. Has a concise and well curated collection. You can easily do this Museum after the University of Guanajuato and or before. It's also near the Alhondiga de Granaditas. Enjoy!

It's very nice and we'll kept. Incredible that in this cozy little house Diego Rivera the husband of Frida Kahlo was born. Has in the uppers levels nice pieces of art of the artist.

I'm a big fan of Diego and Frida but there's plenty here for even the casual art lover. Not only is this a beautiful example of a colonial mexican home it's one of the best collection of Diego Rivera's work's I've seen in one place. This collection really highlights DR's versatility as an artist and follows his attempt to master... More

A fairly sizable collection of his paintings covering various periods of his artistic life. There was also a temporary exhibit of art on leaves of the Maguey Plant that I personally found more unique and interesting. No fotos allowed above the first floor!

Really enjoyed walking through his Diego's childhood home which boasts so many of his works and a few rooms of furnishings from the era as well. There is quite a variety of his styles included in the collection and of course, photos of him and Freda Kahlo. Certainly worth seeing if you are in Guanajuato. Price is right (20 pesos).

Just seeing all his work displayed here is worth the 20 pesos by itself. I can't believe how many pieces they have.
