The museum is a very interesting place to visit and presents quite well life 100 years ago. However, the best art of Diego Rivera isn't here. You may find other revolving expos here as well. Don't make it first on your list.

We enjoyed the building but the art was limited to other artists with little art from Diego Rivera. A quick detour and fun enough but just OK.

If you're interested in Diego Rivera, you'll want to visit the home where he lived as a young boy. Diego Rivera, who became world famous, was a native son of Guanajuato, and it's interesting to see where he started, as a young boy.

This is a small museum. Diego Rivera's parents house was renovated and it's quite a contrast between the old house and the new one. I didn't see many artifacts that belonged to Rivera, or paintings. That would have been interesting. I liked the architecture of the house.

I went in with a 6 and 9 year old and quickly went around the tiny house. It's currently undergoing construction and the electricity was cut for most of our quick visit. It has interesting artwork from artists other than Diego and a nice kid library area. The place was crowded at 10:30 on a Thursday in August and it was hard to walk around the tiny house. It's not expensive to enter and satisfied my tiny curiosity. Diego Rivera painted murals in person in Mexico City that are incredible and worth a visit. This museum is not worth a trip to Guanajuato but is something to do once there.
