Using Alameda Central park as a hub, you'll find a cluster of must-visit museums like the immense Palacio de Bellas Artes. This iconic center of Mexican artworks features some of the country’s most famous pieces, including stand-out murals by Diego Rivera.

Finally, the Museo de Arte Popular collects a wide range of colorful folk artifacts like carnival masks and figurines. Heading east with a Mexico City car rental, the Templo Mayor is an important archaeological site with a museum.
Several fantastic attractions to visit with a car hire from Mexico City, are in the Coyoacán borough to the south. One of the most prominent is the Museo Frida Kahlo, the birthplace of the celebrated painter, and a museum of her life and work. Nearby, the fascinating Museo Casa de León Trotsky narrates the life of another historical figure, the socialist icon Trotsky. Trotsky lived and was murdered here in exile by Stalin’s agents.
