Museums & Galleries

One of the most important private collections in Mexico, this museum is found surrounded by the outer structure of what was once the Hacienda La Noria, a 17th Century construction which became famous in 1913, when it was occupied by revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata's troops. Here is one of the most important collections by painter and muralist Diego Rivera (approximately 140 pieces) together with twenty-five paintings by sometime-companion and contemporary artist Frida Kahlo, and a considerable number of works by Russian illustrator and printmaker Angelina Beloff. There are examples of pre-Hispanic and popular (Mexican traditional) art, along with a large collection of furniture and other objects from the colonial period. The museum is located in Xochimilco, one of the few sectors of this colossal city that still maintains a provincial air about it.
