We were thrilled to find the wonderful Rivera murals on our last day! They provided almost a timeline of Mexico's political history.

This 1600's convent that the Secretary of Education is housed is worth a visit in it's self. The tremindous number of works by Diego Rivera is astonding. There is a free guide of the murals named Raul at the main security entrace on Avenue Brasil...More

This was a highlight! We were the only visitors there! We had free reign to those thousands of feet of Diego Rivera murals to ourselves, in a beautiful courtyard setting, for free!! Just a couple blocks off the Zocalo, even!

So glad we made it here. Beautiful murals in a multilevel outdoor courtyard. This is a quiet and serene free place to visit, in the middle of the wonderful madness that is Mexico City. Every bit as wonderful as the National Palace with no crowds...More

An amaizing trip into the Mexican culture with a bitter criticism to social inequalities, clerical cynicism and upper class brutality and shallow ideals.

We just walked in. There were people with guides while we were there. Totally depends on your needs and desires. These murals can be appreciated with or without guidance.

We stayed near the Zoczlo (Cathedral, and main square) and there is plenty to see, just walking around and observing! A comment that 'the city itself is a museum' is on point. We passed St Regis on the way to Chapultapec... More
