It's an extremely rare treat to see where great artists lived and worked. Thankfully, the home of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo exists and is well maintained. The grounds consists of three buildings: Diego's house/studio, Frida's house/studio, and third building (visitors?). It's a great piece...More

I really enjoyed this museum duo, despite the crowds at Museo Frida Kahlo. The Anahuacalli is amazing, a real gift from Diego Rivera to the people of Mexico and the world, do not miss that portion. We took a tour bus offered at the Casa...More

A great visit, I have no idea why this place has so many fewer visitors than the blue house but it makes for a far better experience. Nice neighbourhood too.

Located in an upscale neighborhood, walk through Diego Rivera and Freda Kahlo's homes and studios. This is before they moved to Casa Azul (Blue House).

It's cool to say I was there. Unfortunately Frida's house was closed and the only part you could enter was Diego's studio. Note: this location is across the street from San Angel Inn which is one of the ritzy hotels worth checking out.

The Studio is located in San Angel, but worth a visit if you are in the surrounding area. Although there are limited works here, there are plenty of mache sculptures, photographs and artifacts. The studio provides insightful look into the work space for Frida and...More

We went to Frida and Diago's house and were slightly disappointed that two of the three buildings were under construction and we were not able to enter them. We were only able to look in Diago's quarters. Photos outside were free and photos inside cost...More

Must see for architects etc. No lines. 30 pesos each to get in. Frida's house was under reconstruction but Diego's house and Juan Gorman's house are both open. Allot 1+ hours at this location.

residences and haciendas where famous actors like
Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent
families used to live and that have now been turned
into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An

organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays

Hello! Diego Rivera's Studio is about a 15 min walk from Frida Kahlos. That walk crosses some big streets so I recommend taking a taxi. However, they are both very doable in one day. You need about 2-3 hours for Casa Azul... More
