Diego Rivera’s birthplace in Guanajuato, Mexico is a great museum honoring the famous artist (the Marxist Rivera was persona non grata here for years). Rivera and his twin brother were born in the house in 1886 (Carlos died at the age of two) and lived here until the family moved to Mexico City 6 years later. The museum’s ground floor is a recreation of the Rivera family home, furnished with 19th-century antiques.
The labyrinth of upper floors exhibit a permanent collection of his original works and preliminary sketches. You also see references to his life with Frida Kahlo.
