Warning: It was closed to visitors. Before trekking there, best to confirm that it has opened again. Trip Advisor wants me to write more, but there's nothing else to say.

We couldn’t work out from the website if the museum has reopened or not, but it is definitely (on 6th Feb 2022) still closed to the public. The security guards at the door say they don’t know when...

Beautiful! The garden is splendid with peacocks everywhere. The art collection is good but depends on your taste in the matter. There's even a little coffee shop closed to the house. Not that cheap for foreigners and being able to take photos inside cost an extra. But overall a good value.
This is one of my favorites museums to visit in south Mexico city, it has the biggest art collection in the world of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's work in the world including Frida Self Portraits!! Theres is a whole room dedicated to sunrise and sunse paintings by Diefo Rivera.Dolores Olmedo was sponsor and close friend of the couple. Among the permanent exhibition there are also Mexican classic furniture and pottery ( talavera), the colonial style building is quite a place to admire. An unexpected and amazing surprise you might find, the many free peacocks that wander the gardens and jump around from ground to ceilings. There are also live xolo dogs in closed gardens. There are galleries for temporary exhibitions, the Dia de muertos offering art is very famous in November. The museum shop is very big and has a great variety of items including many Frida Kahlo themed stuff. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. It is close to Xochimilco canals, you could plan a visit with both locations in one day. Did not visit the restaurant, but was crowded and smelled delicious like mole sauce.
