This museum is the house where Rivera lived. It's very interesting even though not all of the furniture is from when he lived here. There is art by other artists, as well as some paintings and sketches by Rivera.

Diego Rivera’s boyhood home with various other artists displaying work in this 3 floor winding staircase residence. Nice example of early architecture and furniture.

Not much for me in the way of Diego's art, but the house is interesting to walk through and the contemporary artists that are on display provoked thought.

As important as it is to preserve the history of this remarkable artist, and the house in which he lived, the early artwork on display here is a little underwhelming when compared to the mural artwork on display in Mexico City. If you miss it,...More
