I enjoyed my visit and Diego Rivera’s life story is compelling. However, I was disappointed by the limited amount of art by Diego Rivera that the museum held- which is what I went there to see!! There was more art by other artists.

One of the "must do" activities in town , partly because there really isn't much else available. don't expect to see very much of Rivera's art--there isn't any. But the house is interesting by itself

Was a very nice experience being able to wander around the former home at your own pace. Lots of art work and a nice glimpse of history.

As everyone should know, Diego Rivera was married to Frida Kahlo. An incredible house that was turned into a museum that gives insight into not only Diego, but that of Frida as well. I didn’t know much about Diego and Frida, prior to the visit,...More

This house converted into a museum is a historical jewel to highlight Diego's birthplace and beginning. Unfortunately, the building layout is very choppy and doesn't flow well. There is also a modern white atrium in the middle, which is out of touch with the rest...More

I eventually found my way around, but this for me was a good museum with good exhibits. The layout definitely took me a while to get down, but maybe I was having an off day. Enjoy it for an hour or two.

I love house museum so I enjoyed walking around the Diego Rivera House/Museum. There were paintings by other artists, but I love to see the homes of artists, and see where their inspiration comes from. They had a couple of bedrooms, kitchen and dining room,...More

There are rooms set up to feel like the time when Rivera lived here. Separate rooms are set up with a variety of pieces of Rivera’s work and those of his counterparts. Limited signage in English. An art knowledgeable English speaking guide would really help...More

If you have time to spare and are in the city, I would definitely recommend checking this place out. It's a combined art museum with some rooms on exhibition. According to the guide, most none of the furniture is original. We enjoyed our visit.
