As always, if you're not a big Rivera fan (I'm not), you won't want to spend a lot of time here, but if you appreciate his cultural significance, you'll at least want to come here and to a number of other places where his murals are featured.

Stopping to see this mural is a must for any visitor to the city. Not only is the mural itself stunning, the history within the mural is fantastic. The museum does a great job of presenting all the history behind each person in the scene. Don't miss it!

At the time we visited, the only part of the museum that was open was the one large mural by Diego Rivera. Some work is being done on the rest of the museum and they were painting near the entrance: the strong smell of the paint was too much. They still charged the full museum fee (30 pesos) which is...

This place is so small. There is only a 2 murals I've seen. It was free on Sunday. If you're near Alameda Central you can check this place out.

The original 7 ton mural was in the Prado Hotel which collapsed during the great earthquake in 1985 but was not destroyed. It was relocated after that date to its present location. It is a must see Diego Rivera work. You must sit and carefully attempt to identify the real life people portrayed.

The most famous mural of Diego Rivera used to be in a hotel entry hall until the hotel was badly damaged in teh 1985 earthquake. It was saved and got a new home in this small museum. The mural is the finest of Diegos and in General of Mexican mural art. You see it and you see an artistic period... More

This is a small museum, originally an education building, which contains a huge and breathtaking mural of Diego Rivera depicting the life in Mexico City fifty years ago. The building is nicely maintained and centrally located at the end of Alameda. It is free on Sunday and there is a small nominal fee during the week. The mural itself is... More

It's unlikely you will spend more than 10-15 min there as it is tiny but contains some good sketches of Diego's murals and one large scale mural itself.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
