Owner description: Mexican artist Diego Rivera's most famous mural, "Dream of a Sunday afternoon in the Alameda", is housed in this museum.
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We recently visited the small museum dedicated to the Diego Rivera mural "Dream of a Sunday afternoon in the Alameda." It a long name and a long mural. A very amusing one with lots of characters and a chart so you can pick them out. As so many things in Mexico City, its almost free and well worth the stop if you are in the Alameda. One caveat, its a little difficult to find. It does not face Balderas, as my map suggested, but rather the small park to the south where you can find men playing chess and inexpensive food vendors.

Since we were with Frida and Diego aficionados, this was a must do! Thankfully on the day we were there, the mural was the only room open for observance. Seeing it in a phograph or postcard does not do it justice. It is a marvel that it was preserved after the earthquake!

This is one of Diego Rivera's most famous works and you will see reproductions of it in various other locations. It was saved after an earthquake destroyed to hotel it was originally housed in. There are other works by other artists in an effort to make the space more of a museum and less of a one-trick pony, but none are anywhere near the mural. Plan 30 minutes if you are interested in going over the details of the work. There are explanations in English as well as Spanish going over the various portraits and symbolic figures.

one mural fills a large hall, providing a Mexican history lesson to the observer. Seventy or so personalities are depicted - explanatory English language panels are provided.

Diego Rivera has an incredible story of his life, his talent, his achievements, and his challenges. His murals are famous and were painted by him in many countries and valued by art collectors. His murals tell stories of social struggles and fighting force of the mexican people fighting for their rights.
