Be sure to visit the Diego Rivera museum. Which was also Diego Rivera's house. Born Diego Maria de la Concepcion Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodriguez. Is it any wonder he changed his name. Imagine how the kids giggled during roll-call in school.
The museum consists of a collection which displays almost 100 original works of the master Diego Rivera. The collection is one of the most important in the country.
Different creative stages of the artist are displayed such as his formative years and his cubist period.
Portraits, landscapes, nudes, allegories, still life paintings and mural sketches are some of the pieces in the house.
