Covering all of the walls of these two courtyards are Murals. 235 panels was done by Diego Rivera between 1923 and 1928. This was his first large-scale mural project. The themes center around workers and the glorification of all things Mexican, especially the Mexican Revolution. Rivera named the two courtyards "Labour Courtyard" and the other "Fiesta Courtyard"based on the themes... More

A very moving experience, from Rivera's early mural in the auditorium to Orozco's Malinche under the stairs and more, this is an important site of the muralists, which is well preserved and not to be missed.

If you're going to the Zocalo in the center of the old city, take a stroll over to this public building where Diego Rivera decorated the walls of the grand staircase with marvelous murals. The murals depict Mexican history and take a few jabs at the aristocracy (Rivera was a "man of the people.")

We were fortunate to visit this with David, a tour guide form the company "Journey below the Surface" - who was excellent. Without him I would not have fully grasped the hidden details and the quirky references that Diego Rivera places within the many murals. Quite a wait to get in, but a lovely, peaceful little oasis in the National... More

Such a fun experience getting to see the murals (and impressed that they allow free entry into a government building to do so). The building itself is beautiful as well with a very pretty interior courtyard. Didn't seem to be a lot of other people visiting when we were there, but this was one of the highlights of the trip.

These murals blew us away ! Adjacent to Zocalo, they are a must see attraction. Entry is free, but you have to leave some form of ID with security at the entrance.

There are three floors of Diego Rivera murals surrounding a beautiful courtyard. There are well preserved considering they were done over 90 years ago. They are also all labeled. Admission is free but you need to bring an ID card.

I saw this mural before the earthquakes when it graced the lobby of the hotel El Prado.... I went again to see it last week at its new home, a smallish museum facing the Alameda park hidden on a side street. Hope you can make it there. Just an hour will do. It is colorful and full of history. Try... More
