“Interesting”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Interesting, but limited b/c we don't know Spanish and all signs are in Mexico. Nobody there to help understand what is in the museum.

“Worth your time!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We accidentally stumbled upon it, and it was a nice surprise. Not just wonderful art, but history as well. Not just an art gallery, but period furnishings too. A great way to learn more about Diego Rivera. English friendly!

“Great view into a slice of Diego Rivera's life, plus more.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

There is art by not only Rivera but other artists, and some of the rooms where Diego lived as a child. Well selected.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

To see the evolution of Diego's style from his childhood on up was a delight. The combination of seeing where he spent his early childhood and his works really gave one the sense of understanding this complicated individual a little better. If you are a Diego fan this is a must stop.

“Educational , interesting,”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

It's a must when you are in Mexico to go to Guanajuato and visit Diego Rivera home and museum. It's within walking historic center,close to most attractions. The museum shows a lot of his work, a small library and some works of local artist. Carmen is very informative of the life and work of Diego .
