  • Tucked away in the midst of millions of houses south of Mexico City, this private museum, an interesting brother of the Blue House of Frida, is a magnificent building that takes visitors from the gloomy pre-Hispanic underworld to a very bright and sunny terraces . Diego Rivera's Heritage to the people of Mexico, has a very good collection of pre-Hispanic art. The Building is unique in its genre with a pre-Hispanic-inspired architecture and generous spaces to enjoy. It is worth a walk between its walls to understand the thought of the ancient Mexicans, and Diego Rivera himself, who inherits all, the product of his effort to have spent his fortune in the construction of the Anahuacalli and its vast collection of Mesoamerican art. Thanks Diego for giving us the fruit of your passion for the beauty of art, and the culture of this country.

  • Amazing collection of pre- Hispanic art! The Architecture of f museum is nice and reminds us of a pyramid. That was the idea from Diego. Only complaint is the light: either to dark or to much light that reflecting! Don’t forget to look at the sealing, one can see awesome mosaic from Diego himself! Certainly a must do!
  • Another must see when in Mexico City. If you are interested in learning about the history of the country and some of its contributors then definitely visit Museo Anahuacalli. The view from the roof top is refreshing. Built from volcanic rocks each space was carefully designed. Just beautiful.
