I recommend paying the $400 pesos for one hour guide. This made the visit much more interesting as he told us more about the paintings of Diego Rivera. Without his help we would have not seen all the information in the paintings.

Sadly we didn’t have enough tome to explore this site fully but what we did see of it was truly impressive, it’s worth a visit for the Diego Rivera Murals alone! But if you have the time lend a few hours to this place to explore its grounds.

The building is beautiful and it contains many Diego Rivera murals. When we went in late October there were no queues to enter.

We dropped into this place off of the Zocalo--we forgot picture IDs (we had paper copies) but were able to get in with the guide's help.

The murals are incredible--Diego is a true genius--look for details like the dogs that face you no matter where you are looking at the mural and the suns that link the Toltec and Marxian panels.

Do not go without a guide--Martin Castellanos was incredibly knowledgeable and led us through the Benito Juarez museum and then the murals--his breadth of knowledge of history and culture was impressive--a real professor and he animated the place in a way that was remarkable. He has written a book on the Catedral as well...look for him and hire him! You will not regret it. Worth every peso. He speaks English and Spanish and probably a few other languages...Highlight of trip to Mexico.
