Lonely Planet review
Designed by Diego Rivera to house his collection of pre-Hispanic art, this museum is a templelike structure of volcanic stone. The ‘House of Anáhuac’ (Aztec name for the Valle de México) also contains one of Rivera’s studios and some of his work, including a study for Man at the Crossroads , the mural commissioned by the Rockefeller Center in 1934.
In November elaborate Day of the Dead offerings pay homage to the painter, and from April to early December the museum hosts free concerts on Sundays at 1pm, ranging from classical to regional folk music.
Anahuacalli is 3.5km south of Coyoacán. For M$100, you can visit both the Frida Kahlo Museum and Anahuacalli, with round-trip transport departing from the Casa Azul included.
Or take the tren ligero (light rail) from metro Tasqueña to the Xotepingo station. Exit on the west side and walk 200m to División del Norte; cross and continue 600m along Calle Museo.
