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

We went early and the museum only had about four people in it. We got to just study this work of art with no interruptions. Read the description of all the folks in the painting and that was really interesting. This is a must see even if it is only one mural. .

I loved looking at the famous Alameda Park mural by Diego Rivera just after a stroll in same park. Seeing the mural up close gave me the opportunity to see many fine details I had not seen before. There was a mural plan diagram that explained who each character in the mural represented and a little bit about who they... More

We spent close to two hours in this very small museum mostly admiring the Rivera mural that depicts the history of Mexico through a complex composition of characters including 72 identified persons - including Frida Kahlo and Diego himself when he was a boy and later in his life.

One of Diego Rivera's main paintings. Amazing place to see a complete picture of the Mexican society in his time. This is a quick and very interesting visit that you need to do where you are in Mexico.

Free on Sundays, cameras I think were M$5. Opens at 9am. The mural is cool, I found some of his other pieces a bit more interesting upstairs as they were more classical. The view of the mural from upstairs was impressive and there was another talented artist exhibiting downstairs. A small museum, may not be worth the price of admission... More

The huge mural, originally in the Hotel del Prado, is an illustration of Mexican history, from Cortés and Bishop Zumarraga on the left to the Revolución on the right--with Diego, Frida, "la Catrina" and Posadas in the center. Be sure to check the key to find Iturbide, Winfield Scott, Santa Anna, la Revoltosa, Don Porfirio Diaz and many others.

We paid the 59 pesos to see this mural which is lovely but a few days later made our way to the Education building north of the Cathedral a few blocks and spent almost two hours looking and three floors of walls painted by Rivera fro 1923-1929. Go there instead!
