  • Museum located in Coyoacán, the Blue House where Frida and Diego lived, in this museum you can appreciate original paintings of the artist, know how they lived, is the exhibition of Frida's dresses. It is best to buy tickets online and print them and arrive about 15 minutes before the time of your ticket. It's another icon in our history of Mexico.

  • Really a beautiful museum house. Rescue Frida's spirit and travel her life and work in a practical way. Maybe I shouldn't charge an extra for taking pictures, I think it takes a little "love" out of that house. Must-see for those who want to know more about the artist.

  • We did some reading on Frida Kahlo and her life (and even watched the 2002 movie) which really helped. At the museum be sure to rent the audio guide (only available in Spanish and English?) but very useful. Without it the displays will not make as much sense. Be prepared for crowds but they are well managed. Even with a ticket you still have to line up outside but the line moves quite quickly. Try to buy tickets from the museum itself ahead of time - not from a ticket broker!
  • If purchasing online as a foreigner, do it in your home country. We unfortunately did not but did show up about 10 min to opening and waited very little to get in. Highly recommend purchasing the audio guides. Really makes the museum that much greater as other top museums in Mexico haven’t invested in that technology. The entire experience is pretty unique and overall a great stop while in Mexico City!
