The Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli or, also called only "TheAnahuacalli Museum", is located in Southern Mexico City. Conceived as an idea of Diego Rivera, who was motivated by the splendid Mexican culture. He was so into Mexican roots that he collected almost  50,000 items of pre-Hispanic art during his life. The purpose of the museum was having a place to exhibit them and leave Mexican people a legacy on its pre-Hispanic story.

Anahuacalli was completed after Rivera's death by his friend, the architect Juan O'Gorman, Heriberto Pagelson and Rivera's own daughter, Ruth.

The building is made of black volcanic stone and is shaped like a pyramid. The items inside the collection of the museum come from several civilizations that inhabited Mexico during its history. On the second floor of the museum there is an exhibition room devoted to Rivera's works.

The word Anahuacalli means "house of Anahuac" in Nahuatl. The building's shape, besides of being like a pyramid, forms a teocalli or god-house. It depicts influences from the Teotihuacan, as well as the Maya civilizations.
