We liked this museum although a little disappointed there wasn’t more of Rivera’s artwork. The house was awesome and must have been incredible in its day. A life sized copy of one of Diego’s famous murals was displayed & had a key below it with...More

Very nice building, where Diego Rivera was born. 3 or 4 floors with exhibitions and on the top you can listen an audio from a famous picture. My kids were bored and the museum missed an opportunity to offer better explanation from the good exhibition...More

There is an elevator in a remodeled old building. Not a large museum but interesting and worth a visit. Maybe an hour should do it.

It costs 25 pesos. So which is cheap. For that cost I think this is acceptable even though there is not so many his works.

Was disappointed in that there was very little of Rivera's artwork and no examples of his murals here. It was more a historical review of his life and a recreation of his childhood home. Interesting but not a "must see"!

I enjoyed my visit and Diego Rivera’s life story is compelling. However, I was disappointed by the limited amount of art by Diego Rivera that the museum held- which is what I went there to see!! There was more art by other artists.

One of the "must do" activities in town , partly because there really isn't much else available. don't expect to see very much of Rivera's art--there isn't any. But the house is interesting by itself

Was a very nice experience being able to wander around the former home at your own pace. Lots of art work and a nice glimpse of history.
