This is a short 2 block walk from Templo Mayor. As you enter you sign in and provide identification (US driver license worked), leave it with them and go through security. My teens didn’t need to provide ID. Entrance is free! Three levels of amazing...More

Amazing art display. This is from a very famous Mexican artist who happen to be Frida´s Kalo husband. The proportions, quality of work, color and social message are to be enjoyed.

Definitely worth a visit. There are docents to help interpret the mural and a chart so you can identify all the people.

Set round two levels in spacious courtyards of a working office building, panel after panel of work by Diego Rivera (and some guest appearances by students and friends) with images drawn from history and Mexican Culture. Always prepared to surprise with a change in tone,...More

Do try to secure a visit to the Secretary of Education building to see the murals by Diego Rivera. These show an intimate look into Meico's life and ideology during the first decades of the XX Century and portray some of Rivera's lesser known works....More

We just walked in. There were people with guides while we were there. Totally depends on your needs and desires. These murals can be appreciated with or without guidance.
