BRING ID. You need it for a ticket !!!!

We lined up on a Sunday to checkout Diego Rivera’s murals. One of the group has to leave an ID. There is a map/explanation guide but it’s all in Spanish so consider reading up before you come unless you can translate. The murals are beautiful...More
If you leave the amazing buildings aside and the gardens too then you can spend endless time looking at the murals. The murals are an awesome summary of Mexican history from prehispanic times to panels just dedicated to the place of corn to their society...More
The Rivera mural is a masterpiece. The history of Mexico painted on 3 large walls of the building. Still in very good shape despite being outdoors. But, there is other art on display as well. The fountain in the courtyard is very photogenic. The cactus...More

It is really impressive.
I like how Diego Rivera painted Mexico history in the walls.
I recommend you to hire a tour-guide for your visit. He/She will provide important information of the place.
P.D. To access to the Palace you will need an ID ;)
Diego Rivera murals are displayed on the broad, stone staircase and around the courtyard walls. I think this is the best place in Mexico City to see Diego's overpowering murals. There is also a museum you can browse. Admission is free. You do have to...More
The line outside was super long and hectic, but there was plenty of activity and people watching. Yes we went mainly for Diego's murals, but there was a ton of historical art to see as well, though it was a bit lost on us. There...More
Not only can you experience the new exhibits, but also the historical aspects of the property. Be aware there are multiple entrances that lead to different parts of the palace and that means different exhibits. One bit of advice; download the google translator. it will...More
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

No reservations are required.........if planning a visit, would recommend during the week and avoid busy weekends (holidays). You must leave your passport with one of the security guards and pick it up at the end of the tour. Not to worry they are very organized. Enjoy!

I didn't see any, we had our own guide, there were people milling around us because they wanted to hear what our guide was telling us. try looking on the website, it should tell you if there are "official" guides for hire. But your smart to inquire, the murals are really amazing and the story behind them makes them so. It would be a shame to not know what your looking at. There must be something on the net that has the background. Safe travels, you will love Mexico!
