Overview

Located in Xochimilco, at Mexico City’s southern extreme, the Dolores Olmedo Museum is housed in a rambling stone structure, originally dating from the Sixteenth Century, formerly known as the Hacienda La Noria. By donating her art collection to the people of Mexico, Dolores Olmedo Patiño created a cohesive whole, where treasures of the fine arts were incorporated into colonial construction added during the Seventeenth Century, surrounded by lush gardens, shaded by singularly Mexican plant species, and inhabited by gorgeous animals like the magical peacocks –seemingly confected of living jewels—and the enigmatic hairless Xoloiztcuintle dogs, a Precolumbian breed that is unique to behold and warm to the touch.Since the museum opened its doors to the public in September of 1994, its greatest treasure is its painting. The world’s most important collections of works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are housed here permanently and are adored by the legions of visitors who flock to admire them. There is, as well, a collection of the woodcuts and book illustrations by Russo-French painter Angelina Beloff, Rivera’s companion during his early years as a budding painter in Europe.

What a discovery! The collections are well displayed and the gardens are magnificent, full of peacocks and works of art. To photographs the interior you will need to pay for permission, but it is worth the pesos!

Wonderful Museum located on a large estate. Excellent Diego Riviera artwork. Provides further education and insight into Frida and Diego's life and work. The Peacocks on the grounds are absolutely fabulous, and they are everywhere. The hairless dogs are well, a bit creepy looking but...More

The most fascinating part of this place is the amazingly well-kept garden with freely strolling peacocks. The exhibitions are not bad but there are better places to see Riviera's works or prehispanic items. During my visit Frida's exposition was unavailable due to an abroad trip,...More

Xochimilco
Xochimilco is one of the most ancient and natural
parklands around the city. Used as an important
agricultural area since the Pre-Hispanic era, it holds
a great variety of flora and fauna that you can
witness while canoeing on your own or taking a ride in
a classic trajineras (gondola-like boats) decorated
with juniper and flowers. Enjoy some Mexican antojitos
while sipping a bit of mezcal or tequila and listen to
