The line outside may look imposing, but it moves quickly. Once inside, the crowds quickly scatter. The murals are spread across the second floor and stairway. It's free! Add the Diego Rivera Mural Museum, which is a 10 minute walk away.

These murals are some of the best that I have seen in Mexico City. Located in the Education building, hardly anyone goes to see them. Ask at the desk to be directed to them. They cover the walls of three floors (there is an elevator) and two courtyards. There are not many places to sit, so be prepared.

These murals are a must see in DF. We went as part of a tour and they seemed conveniently located to drive to and see them without taking out too much time from the other stops. They are very pretty and worth the look.

The setting : stunningly beautiful colonial architecture. The art : some of Rivera's finest quality murals. 120 of them! Commissioned by the visionary Minister for Education of the time (1920s). Would YOUR current Minister for Education spend public money on commissioning the best artists of your country on art in public buildings?! Anyway, the murals depict everyday life, industrial, agricultural... More

If you see one place in Mexico City, make this it. Truly marvelous and underrated. Worth waiting in line for, if need be. You need some form of ID, but don't be intimidated.

An interesting place. I had no idea that Diego and Frida attempted to establish this artistic commune. If you go, take a guide with you to enhance your understanding of this place and its purpose.
