Diego's Mural was absolutely amazing in person. If you want to take a photo of it, you have to pay extra for it, which isn't really worth it. This particular museum ( I think) only houses this one mural of his, and has revolving exhibits of other artists. It was a nice small quiet museum to visit.

Breathtaking, intricate and beautiful. I just wish I had a translator so I could understand the comments.

I had a great tour with Journeys and Beyond and Alvaro took me to the Diego murals. He did a great job explaining the importance of the murals and the stories and history of Mexico through the drawings. A great history lesson in pictures. The museum is small, just a few rooms - you won't need more than 30 minutes.

One mural, but a gorgeous one, together with a detailed breakdown of what it contains, in both English and Spanish. Sit for a while and let it wash over you, then walk around and look in wonder at the incredible detail it contains and the stories it tells.

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.

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.
