The Frida Kahlo Museum (Spanish: Museo Frida Kahlo), also known as the Blue House (La Casa Azul) for the structure's cobalt-blue walls, is a historic house museum and art museum dedicated to the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. It is located in the Colonia del Carmen neighborhood of Coyoacán in Mexico City. The building was Kahlo's birthplace, the home where she grew up, lived with her husband Diego Rivera for a number of years, and where she later died in a room on the upper floor. In 1958, Diego Rivera donated the home and its contents in order to turn it into a museum in Frida's honor.


The museum contains a collection of artwork by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and other artists along with the couple's Mexican folk art, pre-Hispanic artifacts, photographs, memorabilia, personal items, and more. The collection is displayed in the rooms of the house which remains much as it was in the 1950s. It is the most popular museum in Coyoacán and one of the most visited in Mexico City.

  • Newly renovated beautiful park. New playground. Cleaner garden. New mosaic wall and fountain. New brass statues of Frida and Diego standing over 6ft tall. Exercise equipment and walking paths. Great place for a photo session or relaxing time with the family. A lot of people get a pizza from 2 blocks away at Little Caesars and bring it to the park to enjoy. No bikes or roller blades allowed.
  • Great place to spend in the weekend with the family.
