Yes this really is a museum with 1 really fantastic mural from Diego Rivera and not much else really. But what a mural it is! Located in a small building on the opposite end of Alameda Park from the Bellas Arte Building you might find yourself unexpectedly diving into the stories behind each of the figures represented in the mural....

The wall painting is very large, impressive, and includes an impressive array of mexican historical figures. There is a description in English and Spanish, which is useful to help identify the >80 historical characters.There is also an interactive motion based discovery of the painting, but it's not very easy to use, and only adds little explanation. We entered the musem... More

I first saw this mural in 1963 at the hotel across the street. Somehow it survived the '85 earthquake but the hotel did not. I revisited the mural recently and was glad I did. Be sure to buy the folder which shows all the names of the people depicted in the mural and take your time enjoying a unique history... More

This museum is largely the mural. It was empty on our visit, half a dozen other visitors. The mural is spectaular. There is a small set of galleries that have other Rivera sketches, prints and material related to his mural creation. Interesting.

There are so many museums and murals around town and impossible to see them all. This small museum has a couple of rooms with Rivera sketches and artefacts which are intertresing enough but the main event is a single mural. It is enormous and fascinating. You could spend an hour and not take it all in. There is an excellent... More

When we visited the museum, only a big mural...15 meters wide (almost 50 ft) was on exhibit, but the richnest of detail, not just its enormous size, impressed me: the characters depicted, many of them historic figures, playing roles of a historically important moment in Mexico's history are nothing less than magnificent. A week after our visit other parts of... More

The mural in this small, generally quiet museum is a masterpiece of art, a lesson in Mexican color, everyday life over time, history, and just fun to watch. The stark colors draw your attention to the many figures of history, customs and costumes that still make up today's Mexico. The "modern" side of the mural shows the dreams Diego Rivera... More

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.
