Former college that now houses art and incredible murals. The building itself is a work of art. Well worth visiting to understand the vast history of CDMX.

First, don't rush! To appreciate this complex you're in for a lot of wandering. Up, down, through the different courtyards, balconies, buildings and galleries. There are many clear and useful signs with directions to different areas and exhibits- use them! This institution covers a lot of area, and is constantly in flux. The murals- are quite heavy in subject matter, and cleverly worked into the architecture- not merely slapped up on the walls. There may be installations or regular gallery type displays, or outdoor stuff. Art both traditional and modern, religious and secular, depending on when you visit. The main courtyard is a little slice of paradise in the middle of Mexico City. Sundays are free, otherwise 50 pesos. The best part of this place IMO, is just strolling around and discovering at your leisure.

This is now being shared as a preparatory school and a living museum. A presentation of the best way to eat insects had just completed. The chapel with the Diego Rivera Adam and Eve murals are definitely worth the viewing if it is not in use for lectures. Definitely part of a Zocalo visit.
