One mural. One hour to attend to the incredible imagination of Rivera as he comments on Mexico's history. Find Cortez and his blooded hands, Rivera's beloved Frida and Rivera himself. We were also licky to see the temporary exhibit of Pablo OHiggins who captured many images of indigenous peoples.

Be sure to see this mural. You could plan a wondeful walking tour beginning with breakfast at the Casa de Azulejos Sanborn's, a walk past the Bellas Artes to the Alameda to the Franz Mayer Museum, to the Mural and then back track to the Museo de Artes Populares and possibly the Museum of Tolerance if desired. Finishing with a... More

This small museum is mainly about the one Rivera mural. It shows how it was moved after the earthquake damage and is still mounted on the frame it was transported on. I had our excellent guide to explain in detail the meaning of the mural which made all the difference.

If you're anywhere neat the area, pay the 35 pesos and pop in to see the jaw-dropping, huge Rivera mural here (which was rescued from an earthquake damaged hotel across the street). Unbelievably cool. (And the English information is on your left hand side when looking at the painting ;)

Pay to see one Diego Rivera mural when other buildings and museums have more or are free? Yes! This museum has a major work of Rivera's, well worth much study and time (Originally in Hotel del Prado before it was destroyed by earthquake in the 1980s). Also, there are accompanying exhibits, and changing shows (when we were there, they displayed... More

It is worth popping in here only to see a single mural, his magical "Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in the Alameda Central". If you approach from the direction of the Palacio Nacional (where some other great murals of his are) you will actually stroll through the Alameda Central yourself on the final stretch, and see some of the landmarks...

Spend time viewing each scene in this chronological story of the people and events in Mexican history. A knowledgeable guide such as Elite Tours would be very helpful in pointing out the artistic and historic features.

Super cheap museum (about 1.5e for entrance and 20cents extra if you want to take pictures) right next to Parque Alameda, with an amazing mural by Rivera and great art pieces by Pablo O'Higgins (paintings, drawings & plans of his own murals). Quite small but very interesting; I got that just after 9 mid-week, there weren't that many people so... More

The mural was originally painted by world famous artist Diego Rivera to decorate the reception bar at Hotel Del Prado, a luxury hotel in the mid 20th century right in front of the Alameda park. I remember having accompanied my grandmother there to have a tequila while admiring this majestic piece of art (not sure what the old lady liked... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
