Amid the hectic bustle of the Zocalo, in this government building, are the beautiful murals of Diego Rivera. The scale and intricacy the artwork is truly amazing and they depict the often conflicted and violent history created in Mexico through colonization. The art and it's...More

hi no there isn't an admission fee as its a public building. Sorry dont know about buses there BUT taxis are cheap - though Id always recommend getting a 'SITIO' taxi from hotels etc rather than hailing them in the street.
