Top ways to experience Museo Frida Kahlo
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Coyoacán
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.

    Beautiful house filled with Kahlo's personal art
    This is an absolute MUST VISIT on your Mexico City itinerary. Coated with a vibrant, deep blue, this house was Frida Kahlo childhood home that she then lived most of her life as well, with her twice husband Diego Rivera. Her art is displayed throughout the estate as well as some of her dresses. You get to learn a lot about such an inspiring, contemporary feminist. Make your online reservations days in advance. Also, it’s an extra ~$3 if you want to take pictures.

    Beautifully kept home & gardens
    Beautifully kept historic home of Frida Kahlo, the talented Mexican painter. We enjoyed touring her home, gardens & seeing her colorful clothes as well as photographs & some original art by Kahlo. There are excellent descriptions in Spanish & English highlighting pictures, paintings, time line etc.

    Gorgeous despite the crowds
    Gorgeous and amazing despite crowds  Frida Kahlo is the most influential Latina visual artist ever, and one of the most influential artists amongst humans ever, really.  Her museum is in the heart of Coyoacan, amidst other beautiful, well preserved, and pricey houses and shops.  The Kahlo museum is reasonably priced but you do have to buy a ticket in advance and for a specific time, and then show up on time.  It is very crowded inside and out, and they expect you to go through quickly - but we never felt hurried along.  Her house, art, and life are all on display and it's honestly an incredible experience that makes you really feel her pain, inspiration, and beauty.  You can see her childhood drawings, infamous painted casts, amazing wardrobe, and every room she inhabited.  There are thorough and informative interpretive panels in every room in both Spanish and English.  After Teotihuacan, this was our favorite part of visiting Ciudad Mexico; seeing this amazing life and amazing art will be a treasured memory for a long time.  Frida’s house-turned-museum is only three blocks from Leon Trotsky’s house, which is a worthwhile and fairly cheap museum stop, too.

    A must see in Mexico City
    If you have an interest in art, this museum which is actually the artist’s lifelong home is a must visit. You need tickets and they can be purchased online. Warning: this site is not user friendly but getting tickets in advance is required. My wife and I went on a Sunday morning and had 10am tickets which are the first entry times. The museum was not crowded at this time. Be sure to spend some time in the garden and read the postings which are in Spanish and English. If you have questions, guides in the museum are very helpful. The museum is in an interesting neighborhood and there was a very nice art and craft fair about a block away

    Good tour guide makes it very interesting.
    Well done tour made it very interesting. We enjoyed walking down the Malecon to get there, and then stopping for drinks and appetizers on the way back. Tour itself took about an hour and was an enjoyable culture destination. It's a small garden but well done and an interesting insight into the life and work of an artist who loved Mexico and it's people.

    Just beautiful
    Amazing experience to get to know a little more about Frida, her story and art. Beautiful place away from the hustle of Mexico City. You need to buy the tickets in advance - they normally sell out quickly.

    A trip into Frida s world
    A trip into Frida s world. Her childhood home, her beds, her dresses, stories and passion. Each corner, a different storie. I was mesmerized with her family' s pictures and a glimpse into her reality. Frida was the representation of freedom, even trapped in a sickly body.

    Frida and Diego Highlight
    This was without a doubt, the highlight of my trip to Mexico City and it was such a surprise as I really didn't expect much. I was drawn in right at the start by the paintings, the furniture, the explanations, the whole atmosphere of the place. I was gobsmacked as I really didn't know much about Frida and Diego before I went there. You need to purchase your tickets weeks in advance and can't just turn up on the day as it is crowded and only a certain number are let in each 15 minutes and your time is allocated at purchase and you need to be there on time. Well worth it.

    Highlight of our stay in CDMX
    We really enjoyed this museum, and considered it the highlight of our three-day stay in CDMX. Besides the art, there is a wealth of personal information about the artist that is very interesting and moving as well. the gardens in the inner courtyard are lovely and a nice place to sit. Coyoacon is a bit far from Condessa where we were staying. The public transport is a bit difficult to figure out because it is not all integrated, so we took an Uber and it was quite reasonable. The tickets are good same day at the 'Diego rivera Anahuacalli Museum. it is in the same general direction, but not walking distance. We took an Uber there. It is a lovely museum and not crowded. Well worth combing with the Frida Kahlo museum. Also, leave time to walk around Coyoacon. The area is lovely with lots of restaurants and two markets.

    Quintessential Mexico City spot!
    Highly recommend taking a tour with this site, so you have some background context to the house and life of Frida Kahlo. Trust, it will impact the way you take in the house! Exhibits are well done and powerful. The location, in the neighborhood of Coyoacán, is spectacular. There’s a lot of food, artisans, and monuments to explore in this area - you could spend the whole day checking out various markets and sites!

The museum demands pre.online ticket booking. On the spot tickets are impossible to get. Even with prior appointment, 15-30 minutes of wait is possible.
It has lots of items: family photos, school progress reports, newspaper articles, beds, clothes and dresses, crutches and vessels.
Amidst all these are just a few surreal paintings of real beauty. They speak for the talent of the artist, condone the stories of hysterics, malingerings and peculiarities.

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was eminent Mexican artist who married Diego Rivero, a famous painter. Frida Kahlo is known for her self-portraits and her paintings of natural Mexican subjects. Frida Kahlo is known for her unique beauty; she suffered from polio and accidents but emerged as one of the great feminist artists of the 20th Century. Many of her works are held in public collections in Mexico and overseas.

I enjoyed reading the information and visiting the home they shared, but was happy the price for admission was not expensive. It takes about an hour to go thru and their gift shop is very small with little to interest any Kahlo follower.

I enjoyed the mercado down the street more and enjoyed dinner at the market as well. Wonderful street food.

Over rated and hard to schedule a visit for a group. Their system only lets you get 5 tickets. And we were a group of 6. We had to buy tickets for two different times. And the website does not tell you can use the earlier ticket at the later time. We bought 5 tickets for 3:15 and we had to buy one for 3:45. They would not let all 6 of us go in together as a group and wanted one of us to go at 3:45.

And the people working the line etc were acting all mighty about it. It is basically a system to control how many people are walking the place.

Not a pleasant experience. Maybe if you are a die hard artist you would have to go. This was by a far for us a time not well spent. There are more entertaining museums, parks and events. Waste of my money.

They were letting other people just go in with the same issue but they were with a guide. A rigged system.

Viator cancelled my reservation for this museum without any reason. I booked a certain time and day through Viator, which was accepted, but later cancelled. If you want to visit a museum, DO NOT purchase tickets through Viator as they will cancel your reservation and there will be nothing you can do about it. Very unreliable and unprofessional service which I won't be using again.
