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.Add Parque Frida Kalho to your Mexico City travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Mexico City tour itinerary planner.

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.

No bikes or roller blades allowed.
Great place to spend in the weekend with the family.
