We had visited the house a few years ago. Now there are a lot of new rooms and an elevator. Still the star attractions are all of the eclectic Diego Rivera paintings spanning so many decades.

We were very impressed with this venue and its collection. Even if you are not a fan of Rivera's murals, if you like art, this museum should be at the top of your list. I can't believe admission is only 20 pesos. Really! Wow.

the old house of Diego and Frieda...interesting 3 floors. Disappointed some of his popular works not on display and artwork of non-Diego pieces, but interesting

Some interesting early work from Rivera and a look at this childhood home. Also other exhibits. The building itself is interesting.

Loved touring the family home. So enjoyed seeing Diego Rivera 's early work as well as periods I had never seen before. A wonderful collection. Appreciated the contrast of the old home and modern museum architecture. Good bookstore.

This was a small museum that once was Diego's home as a child and it is filled with his earlier works. It has been expanded to adjacent properties and includes work from other contemporary artists.

Well worth while, the home housing the collection almost as of much interest as the art itself. Made me want to go to Mexico City to see Frieda's art.

Along with the Rivera exhibit are local artistic creations. Be sure to block out at least an hour to absorb all the beauty. I like that there are benches within the exhibit rooms to sit and study the art.
