Learn about the life of one of the country's most treasured artists and thinkers at Museo Casa Diego Rivera, set within the painter's family home. Born with a twin brother in 1886, Rivera lived in this house for the first six years of his life, before his family relocated to Mexico City. 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.

  • Significant but not the biggest Museum we have ever visited. Was interested in visiting his birthplace, before visiting his more well known one in Mexico City. Worthwhile.

  • Learned so much about Diego that I have not known before. I loved how this little house was tucked away on a Guanajuato side street and then you can immerse yourself in art history then re-immerse yourself in the buzz of Guanajuato really easily. Loved this place
  • Great collection of maestro DR showing his range and prowess. All housed in the restored house where he was born. Some special exhibits were okay.
