We just viewed Rivera's murals at the Palacio Nacional, which are simply stunning. I was expecting much more Rivera art work at the museum but the only piece, which is gorgeous, is THE large mural. It is worth seeing, but don't be disappointed. This is not really a museum for the artist with many pieces or selections, but a show... More

Museo Mural Diego Rivera hosts only one mural Sunday at Alameda Park. It is enormous! There is very good map in the museum explaining the characters in the painting. N ot very crowded, benches are available.

This museum houses "Dream of a Sunday afternoon in the Alameda Central Park, a 50 foot long mural which takes you through the centuries of history the park had seen, from the Spanish Inquisition to the Mexican revolution. It is absolutely mesmerizing and you can spend a long time dissecting all the characters portrayed.

It doesn't take long and it doesn't cost more than a few pennies but the murals and the explanation of how Diego's mural arrived here on the back of a lorry is certainly worth a stop. The exposition is good too.

Whether you are an art lover or history buff this stop is worth all the time you wish to commit. Take in the art from as many views as possible for the full effect. Wonderful experience as is the Palace grounds.

Love the location - close to the park. The mural's description is available in English and Spanish, which was very helpful

If you're interested in Rivera's art--of course you will want to see this mural in person. Art is meant to be seen in person, so yes go and see. It's only this one mural though, and another artist was on exhibit. We enjoyed it. Make sure you go downstairs and see the large photo of Diego & Frida.

It only cost 30 pesos to see this wonderful collection of midern Mexican art and an incredible Diego Rivera mural. Musrum is a little hard to find. Faces Hilton next to tents with handcrafted goods. Takes an hour to obsorb this small collection.

Nice Diego Rivera mural painting reflecting the history of Mexico (from the prehispanic time to the post-revolution). Take your time to see it.

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.
