When we visited the museum, only a big mural...15 meters wide (almost 50 ft) was on exhibit, but the richnest of detail, not just its enormous size, impressed me: the characters depicted, many of them historic figures, playing roles of a historically important moment in Mexico's history are nothing less than magnificent. A week after our visit other parts of... More

The mural in this small, generally quiet museum is a masterpiece of art, a lesson in Mexican color, everyday life over time, history, and just fun to watch. The stark colors draw your attention to the many figures of history, customs and costumes that still make up today's Mexico. The "modern" side of the mural shows the dreams Diego Rivera... More

Located just down the street from the Palacio de Bellas Artes, this museum houses an amazing mural by Diego Rivera. The colorful mural features over fifty historic figures of Mexico. There are written guides in English and Spanish that explain all of the people featured in the mural. Depending on your interest in art, you could spend as few as... More

You got speechless when you look at this amazing work and other at this museum, although is not nice to have the security on you checking whether you want to take a picture. You have an Ipad where you can control the big pint on the wall and make a close up and get an explanation about every single persona... More

After a stroll through Alameda Park (unfortunately the foliage was extremely dry this time of year) we headed to the museum. The main attraction is the mural that fills the room with its presence. Some really great Diego Rivera artwork and another retrospective of Mexican history.

You are really just stopping to see the mural. There is a small exhibit just before (ours was the work of an artist with the curious name of Pablo O'Higgins) which I don't know is permanent or not. No matter, the mural is the draw. Here is the key. Spend time at first with the "map" of the mural, to... More

Located just across Alameda from the Belles Arts building where some Diego Rivera murals are not to be missed, this small museum houses one huge Diego Rivera mural that was removed from a building and brought here. Worth a stop.

This is not a large museum but the mural is well worth seeing as are the other paintings in the gallery. It will not take you long to visit and if you are in the central are of the city it is worth seeking this one out.

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
