Casa Azul-long line to get in

Im a big fan of Frida and was expecting more. Her most famous paintings are not at this museum. Get your tickets online because there are long lines to get in.

The Frida Kahlo museum is a must-see! I was fortunate enough to also see the exhibit of her clothing as well as some of the corsets and leg braces she had to wear. The home is beautifully preserved. You will be happy you took the time.

I was very impressed with this museum. I went because I had seen a Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Also I saw the movie version with Salma Hayek. I thought since I was in Mexico City I should just round out my knowledge of Frida Kahlo. I was surprised by how much more... More

Our cab driver took us here. Freda is a legend and after visiting here you will understand. I sure wouldn't mind living in a place like hers

I found this collection of Frida's work very interesting, since she has become well-known, As a Marxist, her relationship with Trotsky was noteworthy, and there she was, with her uni-brow. The gardens/courtyard of her home were particularly appealing. Go early or expect a 30-60 minute wait for tickets (or buy online) unless you're with a tour group.

If you love Frida Kahlo, then you must visit her house in Coyoacan! This museum has a great deal of her paintings and photos. You can see her bedroom, her studio, her kitchen and her most precious belongings. While I was there, the museum had a temporary exhibit with her dresses, amazing experience for Frida fans!

It was quite a bit away from the Centre of Mexico city but it is worth visiting if you like Frida Khalo. You can see where she used to live and experience what she had felt at the time of living. It is better to go early cause it was the only place I was in line in Mexico city.... More

I am not a fan of Frida, but learning more about this woman gave me an appreciation for her mind and talent. She clearly was aware of how the world around her worked at the highest levels, and I am now curious to learn how she was able to have access to her inside perspective.

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.
