This is a wonderful museum. Take the subway and it is a nice walk from the station to the museum. Rent the audio guide. I will repeat this - rent the audio guide. It is only 80peso more and so very well done. It includes lots of extra pictures as well. The museum is in Frida and Diego's house. Many... More

We love art and so it was a pleasure to see where Frida Kahlo lived, loved and painted. I highly recommend renting the headphones so you can get all the interested stories about her life. One thing that was shocking and distasteful was that you have to pay extra to take photos! This is tacky. One thing to note: the... More

It's a great place to visit! It gives you a very good idea of what Frida Kahlo used to do, how her life was and of course where she lived. It's a very good experience. The only thing I'd improve is the ticket system, you should know that the place has a limited capacity of public for each day, so... More

As a fan of Frida's work, I was excited to finally visit her home and have a look inside. We were taken aback a bit by the ticket price, which is 3x that of the wonderful anthropological museum across town. After some deliberation we decided to spend the 200 pesos to come. We learned that it costs another 60 pesos... More

Farida Kahlo is not only represent art. She represents Mexico and Humanity. Her life achievement through physical struggles is outstanding and symbolic for all ages. A must visit to know and understand Mexican life. Beautiful and very meaningful

I went with Amigo tours... I don't recommend going with them- it's not worth it. But so get tickets ahead of time. But, I do recommend going to Casa Azul. Get the audio guide that explains everything and just pay to take pics. Frida's ashes are at the house and friends that have gone had no idea... such a special... More

I'm not a big art lover but I do like Frida and Diego. Both are represented here in their home. Walking through the home got to experience their works that varied in their artistic style through the various decades. Lines to get in were rather long, I wished we had bought them in advance online.

We got there by Uber and bought the tickets in the internet because our tour guide told us that the line to buy tickets would be horrible, he was right. I'm not a museum person, but this one was very interesting. Getting to know the life of Frida Khalo, full of life even in her darkest days. Not the kind... More

It is such fun to walk through Frida's house furnished the way it was when she lived there....even the bed with the mirror above. The interior courtyard is lush and shaded. Read up on her so you will understand and appreciate this gem of a place. Buy tickets online and come as early in the day as possible as this... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
