AAA Editor Notes
Diego Rivera Museum (Museo Casa Diego Rivera) is at Calle Pocitos #47, 3 blks. n. of the Guanajuato State Museum; street parking is very limited. The city's most celebrated native son and one of Mexico's most esteemed muralists lived here the first 9 years of his life. The first floor of the home has been restored and is furnished with turn-of-the-20th-century antiques. The second and third floors contain more than 90 paintings, sketches and watercolors that trace the development of his style, influenced by both 20th-century Cubism and ancient Mayan techniques.

Political beliefs strongly informed Rivera's work, as evidenced by a sketch for the 1933 mural commissioned by Rockefeller Center in New York City that was destroyed because it included a portrait of Vladimir Lenin. Exhibit information is in Spanish.

Restrooms are provided.
