Hola,

We visited the National Palace, with a guide, specifically to see Diego Rivera’s murals depicting the history of Mexico. We had some knowledge of Rivera’s works but were initially speechless at the epic size of the murals and their painstaking detail which has you in conflict as to what you should be looking at (or better yet studying).

Frida Kahlo is in the mural — look for her.

Not to be missed.

Nick & Gemma

The murals are huge, very nice. There’s other stuff in the palace, gardens, etc. they take your ID and give you a badge while you’re in there, got the passport back no problem so no need to worry.

The Palacio Nacional is an interesting building full of history. It was the home of the Spanish Consulate during Colonial times and then it became the President's home until 1944. It was also where Mexico declared independence. Inside the building is the Museo Nacional de las Culturas.

I'm becoming a big fan on the historic center of Mexico City, everytime a friend is in town we head there but this time it was my first time at Palacio Nacional, we enjoy seeing the impressive building and the botanical garden but of course the Diego Rivera Murals and amazing, they tell his view of the history of Mexico and it's fantastic to see they are kept in pristine condition. All you need to get in it's an ID, visit the art-crafts shop and the library. If you are downtown and have an extra hour to see the not too touristy stuff, Don't miss it.

The Diego Rivera Murals were out of this world definitely a must see. Also the entire palace area was just serene and beautiful.
