We were planning to visit Diego Rivera's home immediately after seeing Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul but the taxi driver instead delivered us to Anahuacalli. What a serendipitous discovery! This Rivera designed pyramid-like museum is filled with the thousands of Mexican artifacts he collected. It also features his life size sketches for the doomed mural commissioned by the Rockefellers in New... More

This museum is located in a weird area of Coyoacán. Shaped like a pyramid, it hosts thousands of archeological pieces that were collected by Diego Rivera. With the entrance ticket to this museum you get free and direct entrance to the Blue House (which has always a LONG line to get in).

This is one of the most amazing museums I have ever visited. Striking building, which is a complete contrast to Frida Kahlo's studio (see both if you can). The top floor studio was breath taking.

If you have been in the nicer bars in Mexico City and have seen how the bottles are organized on narrow well lighted shelves, you will understand why when you see Diego's Museo. He collected ancient Mexican art. His building is built of Volcanic rock. Interesting architecture - well wort the trouble it takes to get there.

If you haven't been here before, it's definitely worth a visit. I love the works of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The site is well curated and the displays are thoughtfully done. The grounds are lovely as is the house itself. However, prepared to deal with large crowds unless you get there early. We arrived just before it opened -... More

An excellent and recommended museum. You should consider this one, along with the Museo Dolores Olmedo and, of course, the Casa Azulejo for your excursion. With stops at the excellent Coyoacan mercado for ceviche or carnitas and the Hacienda San Miguel for a margarita.

Unbelievable Museum. Diego Rivera y O'Gormon designed this masterpiece to house Rivera's pre-Colombian art. The layout is excellent. I learned that Diego would go to archeological digs and toss the workers some coins, and ask for artifacts in return. The layout is just fantastic-the building itself is worth the trip.

This museum houses Diego Rivera’s personal collection of pre-Columbian art, and the collection is ENORMOUS. If you're interested in Rivera, it's fascinating to see the depth & breadth of his obsessive collecting. Juan O’Gorman built the building to Rivera's design, it’s like fortress. But if you have time, I think it’s kind of a must-see, simply because it’s so over... More
