The ground floor has been made to look as it did when the Rivera family lived here, while upper floors contain permanent collections of the artist's work, including preliminary sketches. A collection of photos of Rivera with his wife, painter Frida Kahlo, offer a particularly candid exploration of the life of the artist.

  • After visiting Casa Azul in Mexico City, we were curious to visit Diego Rivera’s childhood home. Although the house was interesting to visit, unlike Casa Azul, I would not return.  more »

  • A great little museum in which you can see the many different artistic styles of Diego Rivera. entrance fee was only 25 pesos and while we were there, a gentleman came by offering a tour in Spanish and English, on a donation basis. This is definitely museum in which you will get your money's worth. Good for at least an hour of walking around. There's also an auditorium upstairs which features a large 3 section miracle of Rivera's with detailed explanations of the many figures which appear in the works.
  • Largest collection of Diego Rivera art plus rooms full of furniture from his period. Everything is tastefully displayed. Well laid out. I wish there were more captions in English. But, the ones they have are very informative and easy to understand. You will get an impressive overview of his life and work. I loved it.
