Create an itinerary including Museo Casa Diego Rivera
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.

  • Visited the museum in Oct 2022 but wasn't able to go inside because I didn't have a face mask, even though the staff was not wearing one when I approached.

  • I enjoyed the collection that the museum has. Being that is was the former house of Diego Rivera, made it the more interesting!! and the period furnishings, it definitely gives you a perspective of how wealthy families lived during that time period. On another note...the entrance fee affordable, including the gift shop. It's a must do on your bucket list; if you're visiting the city of Guanajuato!!
  • A must visit when in Guanajuato. The paintings are beautiful and you will always get to see temporary exhibitions. Photos are not allowed for level 1 and level 2 where most paintings are presented.
