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.

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.
The Museum itself is fantastic, though there's a huge wait to get in even in off peak season and even if you get there early. We didn't buy tickets prior to going and had to wait in a huge line, whereas those who brought tickets had priority with a shorter line. Those who booked the tour associated with the museum got priority above all and didn't have to wait at all. Great service and a really lovely museum though and wonderful to see how they lived. You have to pay an extra 30 pesos for permission to take photographs. There's a gift store, Cafe and bathrooms.
You must get tickets on line. Otherwise the wait is just so long. The museum is her old home in Mexico City. It houses lots of her belongings but not a lot of her actual art. Space is relatively small and crowds are large so you can’t browse or wander. That said it’s a special place and I recommend it. The public market a few blocks down is a great spot for lunch!
