Fabulous insightful mural, one of my reasons to visit Mexico City. English legend to explain all the people featured, but best of all was the gentleman there who gave us all the history and reasons why each person was featured in this mural.

Small museum with a big mural. Make sure Arturo explains the mural to you; he is always there. It makes a big difference when someone points out all the key aspects of the mural.

The museum was built to house one mural by Rivera, and although it's a little hard to find, on a corner of the Alameda Park, it's definitely worth the effort.

Such a wonderful mural complete with English and Spanish description of all the people in the mural. They provide hats you can put on to be photographed as if you were part of the mural,

This Mural had previously been outside but was moved inside. To say it is a museum is a little misleading. It contains only one large piece Sunday at Alamadea Park, which is roughly 50 foot long and shows scenes from the park dating back to...More

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
