All reviews pre hispanic art personal collection diego rivera volcanic stone private collection alabaster windows unique structure ancient art nice exposition casa azul rockefeller center big collection rooftop terrace uber ride top floor amazing collection on display
Bypassed too frequently by tourists. Even though you get a free ticket at the Casa Azul/Frida Kahlo house, go here first, then the the mainstream stuff in Coyoacan. Too important to miss if you are a real conoisseur.
Much of our time in Mexico city was a hunt for works of art by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. This museum offered so much more. Yes, Rivera's sketches were displayed but the "more" included a contemporary artist's exhibit, a fascinating Dia de Los Muertos...More
The museum has a huge collection of artifact’s that aren’t really dated or identified. If you have visited the National Museum of Anthropology you have seen better. Visit only if you are a fan of Diego Rivera and want to see his mural sketches.
WOW! This has got to be best private collection of artifacts from Mexico I have seen since the archaeological museum in Mexico City. Level upon level in this lava rock structure. A beautiful structure and wonderfully displayed pieces. Also, look up, there are mosaics on...More
We were not familiar with this museum, but were so impressed by it. It was designed by Diego Rivera to hold his collection of pre-Colombian artifacts. The first floor represents the underworld and is dark, with each corner representing one of the key gods. The...More
Majestic building and majestic statues,sadly the murals are unfinished and the security guards always walk behind your back(feels awkward) and coffee bar wasnt open either, but still it was beautiful and worth it.
Both the architecture of the building and the collection included at this museum is well worth a visit. We were lucky to also see the ofrenda that was installed for Día de los muertos honoring Diego Rivera. Take your time, the many of the 50,000+...More
This is one of my favorite museums in Mexico City, but not for the collection itself. The building, inspired by pre-Colombian architecture and built of volcanic stone, is a wonder to walk through. The collection was nice, but after visiting several larger museums in the...More
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes
and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.

Best to contact them as this place is so remote that it took us 3 taxis to get to it. If I was doing it again, I probably would have asked the hotel to give the directions to the taxi driver. I overheard some say that they might be closing the museum so I would contact the museum first to see if what their hours are. As you are aware, museums are costly to run. I found the people at the museum very nice and helpful as well as helping us find transportation back to the hotel. Definitely a jewel not to miss if you have the time. Hope this helps you with your decision making.
