Museo Casa Diego Rivera

Museo Casa Diego Rivera Review

The birthplace of Diego Rivera contains family portraits, furniture, and works by Mexico's foremost muralist; among them are his studies for the controversial mural commissioned for New York City's Rockefeller Center. Completed in 1933, the mural's portrait of Lenin and overall Communist bent prompted Rivera's benefactors to destroy it immediately after it was displayed. The museum's upper galleries show revolving contemporary art exhibitions, often from other countries.
