I had often heard of this museum and finally visited today. Diego Rivera designed and built it to share his extensive pre-Colombian art collection with the public. The many many pieces are beautifully displayed on several floors with just enough information to help you. Signs are in Spanish and English. I would definitely recommend it. With your paid admission you... More

We are glad to be here. It was quite an experience to be inside the museum. We spent a long time in this building. Unlimited photos with photos access pass.

For lovers of graceful architecture, Anahuacalli has to be one of the ugliest buildings ever created. It' s like a lost and awkwardly-parked spaceship, its ungainliness alone almost worth the price of admission. The interiors do not get any better and you can play at being in one of those alien or mummy/zombie B-movies from the 1950s. All of that... More

The Museum was filled with Diego's collection of Artifacts which were interesting but, not what I expected. Glad I went and checked it out and say I was there!

A less famous but highly recommended museum in Coyoacán. Contains the collection of prehispanic figures from Diego Rivera. Takes couple of hours to visit and always includes a guided Tour. The ticket is used as well for la casa azul of Frida Kahlo, so you can already skip the queu in that museum.

I had never been here before and do not regret going. I would make it part of a must-see list in DF. Built totally from volcanic stone, the gallery was built in the style of a temple. Guided tours are every half an hour and the guides are very knowledgeable.

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighborhood Profile
Coyoacan
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.
