I loved the entrance alone just because the location? - right on the edge of Parque Alameda, and tables of chess players were present - I was excited before I even entered. I loved the diverse artwork onto the side as you go in, but literally, it is like a chapel in being so reverent - the Diego Rivera mural... More

We visited this place on a sunday which means the entrance was free. This was a good thing as they are doing work in the building and there is only one room with one mural to see. It's amazing piece of work but still one room...

There is a very nice and beautiful Mural of Diego Rivera, but only one. My experience there was great because I learned a lot from Rivera from a unofficial but extraordinary guide called Arturo. If you visit the museum, ask for him in the entrance.

I was walking around the Centro Histórico and happened upon this Museum. Having just visited the homes of Friday, Diego, and Trotsky, it was another glimpse into the works of Diego. I would definitely recommend it.

really quiet. pay approx 20p to sit in wonder of his great mural. 30 mins is a good amount of time and is walking distance to the amazing museum of tolerance.

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
