On the third floor of the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum) is this famous mural by Diego Rivera. The original was commissioned by the Rockefeller Center in New York. When this affluent family realized that the mural contained an anti-capitalist message, they destroyed it. Fortunately, Rivera was able to produce a copy of the very same mural for the Palacio de Bellas Artes in 1934. The new version is an even more dramatic portrayal of the conflict between capitalism and socialism. To see all the murals in the Fine Arts Museum, you have to pay, except on Sunday when entrance is free.
