"El Ministerio de Educacion Publica" houses an incredible collection of Diego Rivera murals.
These are his early murals (the 20s) and are on three floors surrounding an open courtyard with jacaranda trees.

Coyoacan is a lovely leafy suburb of Mexico City. The area inspired artist Frida Kahlo and you can visit her beautiful blue house here. It is famous for its markets, on a Saturday and Sunday, for its great second hand bookshops and also its ice-cream (you should try mil flores flavour - a thousand flowers).
A great place to escape the hectic city centre, it is easily reached on the metro or by bus.
Coyoacan, Mexico D.F.
lots of buses from the centre, Frida Kahlo's house is on Calle Londres
A new museum organised by the local govt where artists can show their traditional work and also sell it. It just opened a couple of weeks ago.
MAP can be found in the centre of town in 'la Antigua Estacion de Bomberos' in 'calle Revillagigedo 11'.
This is the house in the southern part of Mexico City where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived. The table is set in the kitchen, and you almost expect them to walk in at any time.
Along the stairway, the wall is covered with retablas, religious cards that they collected. Upstairs in her bedroom is the painting that Kahlo was working on when she died - a portrait of Stalin.

This beautiful palace is located next to the Alameda park. In its interior, one can observe a perfect mix of neoclassical, art nouveau, and art deco styles, together with murals by Rufino Tamayo and Diego Rivera. Besides the spaces dedicated to art exhibits, it has an enormous hall where you can enjoy a Mexican Folkloric Dance show on Wednesday and Sunday nights (35 to 60 euros). Seasonal tip: during Christmas season "The Nutcracker" is performed here. Closed on Mondays. Sundays free entrance (rest of the week: 3 euros).
Av. Hidalgo 1, Col. Centro.

Frida and Diego’s house is off the track and an oasis of calm. You can't help but relax, stroll around the courtyard - and feel the pain as you look at her surgical corsets. If you go there, don't miss out on Trotsky's house, just around the corner. Metal doors, his loo and a few snaps of his head after he was axed to death.
This is a museum located in a beautiful "ex-hacienda": a colonial building of the XVII century. It has a great garden, with peacocks and Mexican dogs ("xoloitzcuintles"). Dolores Olmedo, who used to model for Diego Rivera, lived in this place. In 1994, she decided to share her Mexican art collection and opened this museum. Here you will find paintings from Rivera, Kahlo and Beloff, archaelogical pieces from different Mesoamerican cultures, and decorative handcrafts from many parts of the country. I love this museum because it gives an excellent example of Mexican art in all its forms, and the place is really peaceful and enjoyable...even in Mexico City!
One of the reasons why this museum is peaceful is its location: far from the main touristic attractions, in the southern part of the city. However, you can stop to visit on the way to Xochimilco. The address is Av. Mexico 5843, La Noria, Xochimilco. Phone (5255)5555-1221
The nearest station is "La Noria" in the light train "Tren Ligero".
Often overlooked by guidebooks (probably because this is not the "typical" museum that you would visit in Mexico), the Soumaya holds one of the biggest collections of sculptures by Auguste Rodin in the world (really impressive!). There are also works by Degas, Renoir, van Gogh, Murillo, 'EL Greco', Miro, Tamayo, etc. Entrance fee is 1 euro (10 pesos) (Sundays and Mondays free). It is located in the south part of the city (San Angel area), you can stop by on your way to/from Ciudad Universitaria.
Av. Revolución y Río Magdalena -eje 10 sur- Tizapán, San Ángel.
A practical and hands-on museum for children in the heart of Bosque de Chapultepec, one of the few lungs left in this busy but great city. Staff are very friendly and well trained and above all genuine about your kids having real fun! Life-size objects as well as interactive segments make a great stop for the family (great art museums near by); also easy access and transport.
Papalote Museo del Niño. Circuito Bosque de Chapultepec. Segunda Seccion (2nd Section). Nearest Metro station Chapultepec. www.papalote.org.mx
The Aztec rooms are the most impressive, but the museum also has ample collections from the other great civilizations that flourished in MesoAmerica much earlier. The building is Mexican modern architecture at its best, but the explanations on the exhibits lack depth.
Paseo de la Reforma, opposite Chapultepec Park main entrance; Tue-Sun 9am-7pm; admission 38 pesos; nearest metro: Chapultepec
