Palace of Fine Arts

There is NO other place in the city (or country) where you can see the murals of the three great muralists – Diego Rivera, David Alvaro Siqueiros and Jose Clemente Orozco (as well as other well-known painters) in a single venue except here in the Palace of Fine Arts.  Aside from the amazing frescoes, we will tour this Beaux Art building itself, exploring the hidden nationalistic symbols embedded in the architecture, talk about the muralist movement itself, and explain why it took over 30 years to complete this architectural jewel.  There are usually top-notch temporary art exhibits brought in from around the world.  We’ll see what is on show and include it in our visit.
