We went to the museum by metro and walked the last bit, it is doable but be sure to exit at the station North of the park. The are only three entrances, none of them on the east side (a very nasty smelling River runs there). Anyway, the neighbourhood is safe during the daytime. At the museum expect lines. Buy... More

An Icon legend heroine genius etc etc I don't have the eloquence or imagination to describe the feeling of being in her space - and Diego too of course - Coyoacan is for people watching on a Saturday

Wow is all I can say. Frida Kahlo's life was just as extraordinary as her artwork. I had no idea that she was such a survivor. Her artwork and home are beyond magnificent, If you have teenagers they will love taking photos against the blue walls, Make sure to venture through the gardens and see her clothing exhibit. This exhibit... More

I have seen the house on other visits to Mexico City. It is a must for fans of Frida Kahlo. You can view her room that she recovered in after her bus accident and painted. INow there is an exhibit of many of her dresses. There were a few pieces of her clothing, however this is more extensive. We had... More

I didn't know anything about Frida Kahlo but went on this tour because it was available. I learned so much and was so glad to be informed about this couple that has been so influential in Mexican history - - and world art history in general. The house is a sprawling complex with paintings and many preserved items from daily... More

A visit to the Feida Kahlo museum is a must for any lover of art, fashion and/or a seeker of inspiration. The museum home not only provides a personal view into the multi faceted Frida, but it allows you to become part of her and Diego's world. An hour to an hour and a half goes by quickly as you...

Even though most of the time you're gonna wait FOREVER to get in, it is completely worth it. Everything's been sacredly preserved and you feel like you're visiting someone's home when they actually lived there rather than all these years later as a museum, it's truly enchanting. If you love Frida, you have to go. If you don't, you will... More

We had planned to take our daughter to see the Frida Kahlo Museum for some years and in later December 2016 we finally got around to it.We deliberately booked skip the line tickets with a Tour Company so that we could get in easily.However on the day we arrived at the museum it turned out that the Tour Company didn't...

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
