If you come to this place, don't expect any paintings from Rivera, exceptional some drafts for wall paintings in one room. Here you will find nearly 59000 artifacts which he collected. The design of the museum in shape of a pyramid gives a very atmospheric display of the items.

Loved the design of this museum in the shape of a pyramid and the very atmospheric display of items. This is well worth a visit and the combination ticket we purchased at the Frida Kahlo Museum gave entry to both. Encompassing the two museums and Coyocan made for a great day out though we wished we had set out a... More

We thought we will see art from Diego Rivera, but there is very little, except some drafts for wall paintings in one room. The museum houses 2,000 pieces (of 59,000) of prehistoric art (mainly pottery) that Diego Rivera has collected and wanted to "house" in his museum that was finished after his death. The pieces are not very well presented... More

He collected and then built a museum to house his 59,000 artifacts. Obviously they are not all on display! The architecture is mindful of that which was in Mexico 1000 years ago. His murals are not there.But there are some sketches of murals that were supposed to be in New York in the thirties but were too politically incorrect! Very... More

This museum house many of the prehispanic artifacts that Diego Rivera collected. It is located in an an unusual and beautiful building. We had a combination ticket at the Freda Khalo museum that gave an entrance to this museum as well.

I have to admit, this review is somewhat 'tainted' by the fact that I think Rivera is way overrated, but if you are a big fan of his, and even if you aren't, it's worth at least a onetime looksee.

An impressive building inspired of antique civilization monuments. There is a weird ambiant inside. I really appreciated it !

Fantastic building in every sense of the word. The idea that Rivera wanted to leave a representation of what the ancient Indigenous cultures believed is really interesting. The lower, basement level represents the underworld and art and sculpture from his collection reflect that. As you move up to the second floor that changes to another representation and again moving up... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
