Although it is free entry to this museum you have to have ID for your "group". Travelling on a lengthy trip from Australia the only form of ID we had were our passports and we watched the way they were left unattended outside of the...More
The murals of the history of Mexico, from the Azteca times to the cruel Spanish domination and the advent of the Republic, are a must of Rivera’s muralist work. Worth every second. If you ask you can have a personal guide to explain all the...More
Although it's a pain in the butt, it's worth handing over your hat and bags to security to enter. The murals are interesting and overwhelming in their size, complexity, and political and social statements. The garden within the palace is a real treat too.
On our final day in Mexico City, we had to visit the Palacio National or National Palace. It is located on one side of the Zocalo and is home to the offices of the president of Mexico and the Federal Treasury. Also the palace is...More
The museums in CDMX are extremely well curated and this one is no exception. I was highly impressed with the palace and how it was presented. You can do it as you please and leave with your own impressions.
For foreigners, you have to deposit...More
The Palace itself is OK, but the reason to go is to see Diego Rivera's stunning murals on the history of Mexico. You've seen pictures of them, but until you stand before them you cannot appreciate their sheer power. Marivelosa!
We really enjoyed coming here. We tried to go on a day earlier in the week but it was closed, due to some political visitor that was there. The interior is beautiful and the Diego Rivera murals are absolutely spectacular. They also have two museums...More
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

No reservations are required.........if planning a visit, would recommend during the week and avoid busy weekends (holidays). You must leave your passport with one of the security guards and pick it up at the end of the tour. Not to worry they are very organized. Enjoy!
I didn't see any, we had our own guide, there were people milling around us because they wanted to hear what our guide was telling us. try looking on the website, it should tell you if there are "official" guides for hire... More
I didn't see any, we had our own guide, there were people milling around us because they wanted to hear what our guide was telling us. try looking on the website, it should tell you if there are "official" guides for hire. But your smart to inquire, the murals are really amazing and the story behind them makes them so. It would be a shame to not know what your looking at. There must be something on the net that has the background. Safe travels, you will love Mexico!
