This was the best visit of this stay in Mexico City. The building is impressive and, once inside, you will feel like Indiana Jones entering a temple! The collection of pre-Columbian art is outstanding and so are the different mosaics that cover the ceilings of...More

So he choose the prettiest pieces to be part of his arqueological collection. And they really are beautiful pieces. Must see. Buy the combo Frida and Diego at Fridas house. A bus takes you for a 20 mins ride to Anahucalli and brings you back.

What an excellent experience. An amazing building, stunningly beautiful objects displayed so tastefully. We revisited after a 25 year hiatus, and we were so glad we did. We will go again.

Amazing place that houses Diego Rivera's collection of hundreds of pre-Colombian artifacts and displayed in a manner of honor and respect.

This is a museum designed by Diago Rivera, but due to his death, he never saw it built. Inside, climb to the roof for a fantastic view of Mexico City and the surrounding area. Inside, make sure to keep looking at the ceilings. The artifacts...More

It's a gift of Diego Rivera, filled with the famous muralist's vast collection of dramatically lit, pre-Hispanic pieces that include pottery and statues. The museum is an imposing structure of black volcanic stone shaped like a pyramid. After Rivera's death, the Anahuacalli was completed by...More

This has got to be the strangest building I've ever been in. A modern building based largely on ancient, mostly Mayan design. Filled with a collection of ancient artifacts that are pretty good but not great (the Rufino Tamayo collection in Oaxaca is better). But...More

Anahuacalli does not get the publicity of other sites and is a little difficult to reach (r/t taxi a must) but it rivals the Anthropology museum for its exhibition and building. The "pyramid" structure houses Rivera's pre-Columbina collection that is beautifully exhibited. One big complaint:...More

This place should be more visited, the place holds Diego Rivera´s pre columbian private collection, also some huge sketches of his murales are there, and they always have an artist as a guest to intervine the space. Is worth visiting only to walk inside of...More

Best to contact them as this place is so remote that it took us 3 taxis to get to it. If I was doing it again, I probably would have asked the hotel to give the directions to the taxi driver. I overheard some say that they... More
