Diego Rivera has a very particular and polemic personality that made some really amazing pieces of art. Ideology was behind those pieces and here you can understand who and how he was. If visiting Mexico DF it is a very good place to visit and a good reason to see some very original and personal art.

Our guide was able to walk us through the history of Mexico from the Spanish conquest to modern day Mexico by highlighting the figures in Rivera's mural from left to right. I am definitely more knowledgable as a result and now a big Rivera fan as well!

A must for Diego Rivera enthusiasts or as a taste of his art for those who do not know his work. Saved from a crumbling hotel across the street after a Mexico City earthquake, this mural depicts a traditional Sunday in the Park just a few steps away at the time of Diego. Political and social statements abound as does... More

upon arrival we were advised that they only had one mural on exhibit as they were refurbishing the building, but it didn't matter as we wanted to see "Dream of a Sunday Afternoon". We were extremely fortunate that there was another man seated inside who took the time to explain the aspects of the painting and its history. He was... More

A tiny museum that only had a single mural when we visited, but it's a great one! Wonderful to see Rivera's famous Alameda Park painting in person. Rivera presents the history of Mexico, warts and all, in this single work. The museum provides an annotated key to who's who in both English and Spanish. The entrance fee is nominal. The... More

I went to see the mural and as I was the only English speaking visitor at the time I got a private tour by an amazing guide named Arturo. Not only was this tour guide a tremendous source of knowledge, but he was also very passionate about the subject. As Arturo is of Aztec origin, I got a glimpse of... More

The entry and exits are well staffed highly organized and Spanish speaking only..which is OK because the murals have no use for language and as long as you have done some homework..you will be more than happy with what's on offer. besides the zocalo and cathedrals incredible history....the palace grounds and architecture speak of the glorified air of power...of ruthless...

If you want to see some Diego Rivera murals: don't go here! It has only one mural and then some other 'temporary' exhibition:) We were in and out in 10 minutes; quite a ridiculous experience!

If you like Diego Rivera's murals, you have to visit this one: Sueño de una Tarde Dominical en la Alameda Central. I have always being surprise on how could an artist say so much thru his art! This is just a masterpiece. I recommend a guided tour, since they will be able to explain the mural from A to Z.... More
