This is a must do attraction, especially if you are a fan to Diego Rivera's work. We were stunned by the beautiful Diego Rivera murals in this lovely building and were so glad that we found it. It can be difficult to find. We took a taxi and told the drive to go to Plaza Santo Domingo (numero 35). When... More

This place is not so popular, but it is near Zócalo and you can go there walking about 3 blocks. It is not a museum, but when you arrive there, you can visit the building to see the murales of Diego Rivera. The garden inside the building is also a plus.

Even after seeing murals in Bellas Artes, the Palacio and two or three other landmarks,was blown away by the Diego Rivera's history of Mexico in the Secretaria de Educacion. Check out all three floors.

There is only one mural, the rest is from other artists. I love DR and his paintings but in my view this is highly over rated and hardly worth visiting.

Located within the Ministry of public education!, which kindly grants free access to visitors to admire Rivera murals (more than 200 paintings). Amazing artwork, a must-see in Mexico city. The building itself is awesome (ancient convent of late 16th century), there are not a lot of visitors so you can enjoy the site quietly and at your own pace.

a bit hard to find, but worth it. The vibrant colours and vivid retelling of Mexican history is such a treat.

The Palacio National was closed and we were so disappointed not to see the Rivera murals there, but then we found the Secretaria de Education and found hundreds of murals by Rivera covering the walls of this lovely and quiet space which we had practically to ourselves. Lovely.

If you like the style of Diego Rivera, this is a must see. I had no idea he did so many murals in this one building. I especially liked the satirical depictions of the capitalists, and the plight of the workers. I walked past the building without realizing it because there was no banner or sign indicating that the Rivera... More

This free exhibition of Rivera murals is not to be missed: astounding in its magnitude. For 5 years he painted every wall of three floors of the colonnade surrounding the interior courtyard, making political statement after political statement. One of the best displays of his art anywhere. And it was free!
