For a full day of great sightseeing in the southern part of Mexico City, go first to the Museo Dolores Olmedo Patino, a splendid mansion that used to belong to the wealthy life-long patron (and onetime mistress) of Diego Rivera. The museum has the largest...More

Just got back from a strange trip to the Dolores Olmedo Museum in Mexico City. All of Frida's works housed here are absent-- so much for "permanent" collection-- and will continue to be for 2010. Here is the rub- this is listed on the museum...More

We really enjoyed the exhibits but were disappointed that fridas exhibits were mostly away in a travelling exhibition. Not to worry the grounds are beautiful and made up for the deficiency. Plan to return when fridas exhibition is back at the museum.

This was kind of a long trek, but most enjoyable. It has beautiful grounds and lovely buildings. It is a testament to what some generous wealthy people leave behind and a contrast to the way many trash their wealth. I could repeat other writers comments...More

Truly a lovely museum! Their collection of Diego Rivera work is wonderful. The kids loved seeing the hairless dogs and getting up close and personal with the peacocks. Since we were there during Dia de Muertos weekend, it seemed that every single local in town...More

Our guide said this place is not usually too busy but probably was unusually busy the day we went because schools were cancelled due to the water shortage and it was day of the dead holiday. Great artwork and cafe and gift shop.

If you love Frida and Diego this is a place to visit! It is far from downtown but close to Xochimilco. I love the fact that you can see lots of live peacocks and hairless dogs (xolos)

the property and this very extensive personal collection is a high point for any traveler to CDMX. I can only say that I'm glad to have experienced Ms. Olmedo's legacy to the world.

On the way to Xochimilco it would be good to visit. Look out for the peacocks and xolomeo (hairless) dogs. Intimate art works from Frida and Diego.

Xochimilco is one of the most ancient and natural
parklands around the city. Used as an important
agricultural area since the Pre-Hispanic era, it holds
a great variety of flora and fauna that you can
witness while canoeing on your own or taking a ride in
a classic trajineras (gondola-like boats) decorated
with juniper and flowers. Enjoy some Mexican antojitos
while sipping a bit of mezcal or tequila and listen to

it changes, I think they are in Budapest right now. There is a lot of Diego and Frida art around the home. So still go to that. It is well worth it.
