This is not a spectacular museum where you will see Rivera's master works, but it was pleasant to poke around in for a while. It is the house where Rivera was born and the first level has some of the rooms from the house in...More

Enjoyed our visit to this beautiful museum. Great information and art from Diego Rivera. We also enjoyed the wonderful photographs on the top floor from Africa.

This museum is housed in the artist's home. And while it features a number of Rivera's works, it does little to explain his life and artwork. The museum could be so much better and more interactive.

First class and fun. The Rivera childhood home has been converted to a museum for his work and other contemporary local artists. We enjoyed it tremendously and felt rewarded by our visit

The art museums all in a row, so easy to go from one to another. Modern, motion sensor lights for each art display. Art museums end at an airy, yet indoor restaurant.

Excited that I'd be seeing Diego Rivera's home and museum, my expectations were of more. There was so little to see of the works of Diego Rivera.

He was born here, left at an early age and never returned. That's not much basis for a museum. Still, he is one of the most famous and beloved native sons and there's money to be made in that. The art work is scattered, lesser...More

It's a nice place, but a bit of a hike up the hill. Short on his art work, mostly about his early years
