“Well organized museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I very much enjoyed visiting this museum which is located in the building where Diego Rivera was born. The museum is divided into the various different periods of Rivera's painting career. Many interesting paintings and sketches that I had never seen before. It also gives a lot of information about his life, his connections, etc. I highly recommend a visit to this museum. It's in walking distance from the centro.

“Charming house. Good art display”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This three story home was the first home of Diego Rivera. The ground floor shows the typical furniture and layout of a home of the early 20th century. The upper floors have early artworks of Diego Rivera, which gives a great introduction to how his work developed into his later style.. There is a very modern museum being built or undergoing renos, incorporated into the home and beside it which was not open, but it will be wonderful, once open. A beautiful marriage of traditional and ultra modern.

“Interesting house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is interesting to see the kind of house Rivera lived in growing up. Clearly, his family had money. You can also see some of Rivera's work displayed in the many rooms. The exhibit descriptions are all in Spanish, They don't have English-speaking tour guides or offer a headset with English language.

“Paintings; painting everywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

If you love painting -not only Diego Rivera's painting, but painting in general- you will definitely enjoy this Museum-Gallery. With over three floors with walls filled with art, this place is a cult to Mexican Art.

“A must in Guanajuato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Every time I guide a city tour in Guanajuato, I take my group to this Museum. I love to let my tourists know about the early years of Diego as a child in the house. Dont miss the exhibition of some of the first art works by Diego Rivera as student in Europe.
