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

I went to see the mural and as I was the only English speaking visitor at the time I got a private tour by an amazing guide named Arturo. Not only was this tour guide a tremendous source of knowledge, but he was also very passionate about the subject. As Arturo is of Aztec origin, I got a glimpse of... More

The entry and exits are well staffed highly organized and Spanish speaking only..which is OK because the murals have no use for language and as long as you have done some homework..you will be more than happy with what's on offer. besides the zocalo and cathedrals incredible history....the palace grounds and architecture speak of the glorified air of power...of ruthless...

If you want to see some Diego Rivera murals: don't go here! It has only one mural and then some other 'temporary' exhibition:) We were in and out in 10 minutes; quite a ridiculous experience!

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
