Back to Around Mexico City

Museo Dolores Olmedo, less than 20 minutes from the Embarcadero, hosts the biggest collection of works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. It is a free museum, with optional donations. Most of the year, there are multiple exhibits in the museum. You can spot colorful peacocks, ancient species of dogs (also found in Diego Rivera murals), and other artwork in the campus.

The museum hosts a large (possibly the largest) collection of Diego and Frida paintings and artwork. Walking around does not take long as it is a pretty small campus, but going through all the work of the two most famous painters of Mexico requires about 2-3 hours.

If you are only visiting Xochimilco, it makes sense to swing by and buy some affordable memorabilia from Diego and Frida’s land.
