costs 19 pesos to get in. Disappointing because there is only 1 mural. It is a very large piece though and there is a sign in English that explains who all the various people are. Just east of Palacio de Bellas Artes.

Pull up or print out info on this painting before you go. Sit down in front of the painting, pull out your information and start reading. You can easily spend an hour or more looking through the details of the painting and all of the "characters" Diego drew. You can also buy a 20 peso guide, which is helpful. If... More

After really enjoying the Frida Kahlo museum this was a major disappointment. I can’t recall the fee, but for what you get it was a real joke. Aside from a few sparse paintings etc, the mural itself (what we could see of it) was impressive – spanning the entire wall of a separate room. The problem though was though we... More

The museum has only one work of note. Which is like saying that the Sistine Chapel has only one ceiling. "Dreams of a Sunday Afternoon" is a monumental piece of work. I spent an hour and ten minutes staring at it. It takes you through five hundred years of Mexican history in the most entertaining way imaginable. I highly advise... More

We went. We would only have to pay the usual small entry fee. What would we be seen? One painting. "One?" we said. "Yes, one only." Don't go unless you want now to see one painting. Otherwise, wait until it's fully open again.

I can't get enough of this mural. The museum's small entry fee and its small, yet well-stocked, gift shop make it a must-visit if you're in the area. I've been multiple times.

It's an inexpensive entry fee to see a wonderful piece of art, large too, with a detailed explination of whom is represented in the mural.

At he west end of Alameda Park, an in-expensive visit to see a Diego masterpiece. Go to the east end to see another masterpiece in Belles Artes. There is another room with art, but the main attraction is Diego's mural, “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda. A nice history of Diego's view of societal discrimination and historical Mexican... More

Inexpensive admission, but there was only the one piece of art to see - the mural. I recommend this if you are in the area, but wouldn't go too far out of my way. There are other unused rooms which could have been put to good use by displaying other pictures or information about Diego Rivera.

I'm not sure that you could really call this space a museum ...it has one mural by Diego Rivera, and it's exquisite. Once I got here, I sat in front of Rivera's mural for probably half and hour. It is breathtaking and worth taking the time to experience.
