There are 120 murals in the hallways to this functioning historic complex where the Ministry of Education is located. The primo ones are on the 3rd Floor. However almost none of the Ministry's employees seemed to be present or working on a Tuesday at 10am

Really enjoyed this, I am not a huge art fan, but the history, culture, and storytelling that unfolds in Diego's murals is really quite amazing. Definiteley a must see. Go with a guide to gain the most insight of the murals.

The murals tell the story of Mexico from pre-hispanic to the time of the paintings, all enhanced by the lens of Rivera's politics.

It is a public building, so maybe not. Sorry I can't help
Is there an admission fee? Is the building open during May 22-May 25th? If so what are the hours. Can you get there with public transportation?

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.
