  • This museum was designed by Diego Rivera, but does not actually include any of his own artwork. The artifacts are all remnants from early civilizations - interesting, but not as expected.

  • I’m happy to report, that as of now (Feb 2022) the museum has reopened. This isn’t totally clear from the website which in one section wrongly says it is still shut due to Covid. Super-easy to get...

  • January 2022 I’m impressed with this museum. So much to see and know about Diego Rivera. The building is strict on how people view each floors and rooms. Just an amazing wealth of artifacts collected in this one place. The museum is designed to capture the beauty of what is displayed. Definitely, travelers should include this in their itinerary........ Have a nice day.......
  • The architecture alone is a work of art. As you walk through there’s the feeling of being a part of something mystical and ancient. The placement of certain pieces creates the feeling of intimacy. Climbing up each level until yields something new. The massive room with Diego Rivera’s panels is spectacular. We did this the same day as we toured Coyoacán and it was worth the trip for sure.
