Dolores Olmedo Patiño Museum in Aztlán Parque Urbano at Av. de los Compositores in the Bosque de Chapultepec II Section. Philanthropist, art collector and benefactor of Diego Rivera, Olmedo bequeathed her hacienda, La Noria, and her outstanding art collection to the Mexican people upon Rivera's death in 1957.

Featured are Rivera paintings, drawings and engravings; paintings by Frida Kahlo (including some of her best-known works); watercolors and engravings by Russian artist Angelina Beloff; sculptures; and Mexican folk and religious art. The lovely grounds of this immense complex are alone worth a visit, with their lush gardens, orange and fig trees, Aztec and Mayan artifacts, wandering peacocks and a friendly pack of xoloitzcuintle, a rare, mid-size hairless dog with black skin dating from pre-Hispanic times. Children's programs, concerts and other special events take place Sat.-Sun.

Guided tours are available in Spanish only. Restrooms are provided. Note: The museum is closed and is scheduled to reopen in 2024 at its new location in Aztlán Parque Urbano.

Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
