Take a walk through the beautiful historical district to the public Secretary of Education Building to see dozens of Diego Rivera murals. On three levels surrounding a courtyard, the murals are all very different and very beautiful and in some cases very humorous as well. They are all extremely political as well (Rivera was a outspoken socialist as well as... More

Absolutely stunning. There are 3 levels are fresco's, which awe inspiring. this is a must to visit if you are interest in such works. It was by far and away our most memorable art experience in Mexico City. The building wasn't nearly as busy as other areas, which allowed one to truly absorb the beautiful pieces. The building is open... More

Free, and the courtyard is lovely as well. Go first thing in the morning and have them all to yourself; otherwise the lines are very long and the murals are likely obstructed by other tourists. The exhibition on Mexican history was very large and extremely interesting and well put-together. Also free.

I have been to see these murals several times. Each time I go, I am surprised again by their force and beauty. While there are Rivera Murals at several sites in the city, this is the largest single group. Many of the murals are being restored so you can really see them. (Unlike San Ildefonso where the murals are dark,... More

I read about these murals on trip advisor, and sure enough, we had a hard time finding the place and finally realized it was a small door that leads to the impressive buildings that constitute the Dept of Public Education.. This building is filled with 3 floors of Diego Rivera murals... of all shapes sizes and forms depicting everyday life... More

I thought I was going to see 1 Diego Rivera mural, but there are 2 floors of murals around a central courtyard. WOW!There's a wealth of symbols which we wouldn't have been able to interpret without our fantastic guide Raúl. Ask for him when you enter. Since all the major museums in DF are closed on Mondays, make this your... More

Free, wonderful palace setting. My mission in Mexico City to see Rivera Murals. Go around 5 pm to see the soldiers preparing to take down the flag in the Zocalo. Don't forget your I.d to get in

A friend and I did our own little walking tour of downtown CDMX last month. We had seen videos of the murals at the Bellas Artes earlier and she suggested going to see the real thing, so we did. Advantage or traveling with someone who knows where she is and where she's going - you can walk more or less... More

Visited as part of an organised tour. The murals are most impressive. Fortunately we had a guide who was able to point out and explain some of the most important people in the murals.

Just round the corner from El Zocalo, you will find the public building that contains one of the most precious murals by Diego Rivera. It is a beautiful piece of art. In fact, they are many murals. The biggest is on the walls that surround the staircase to the first floor. On the first floor, along one of the walls,... More
