  • If you think of bringing your baby or non walking children be prepared to carry them around , because they don't let strollers in... other than that the museum is nice, I've been several times, every ...  more »
  • It was a great visit, beautiful house and great way to learn more about Frida Kahlo, but perhaps too many people visiting at the same time...make sure you buy your ticket online and get there early!  more »

  • If I could give more than five stars, I would! Walk through Frida's former home, experience, and learn more about her life story and artwork. The staff, apart from that, is lovely and extremely friendly to locals and tourists alike. I would try going midday during the week. You might avoid some of the many long tourist lines.
  • A mandatory place to visit if you go to the city and love Frida's story. It's interesting to see the place and imagine Frida living there. This is the place where she was born and where she spent her final days. You can also find here the urn with her ashes. An adorable place, I wish I could live there.
  • It's a bit busy, but that's understandable. A fantastic opportunity to see where Frida Kahlo lived and created. The exhibition of her dresses is also very good.
  • I only gave three stars because it would be unfair to give it fewer. MY issue was we arrived by taxi around noon on a Sunday for an unbelievably long line. Even our cab driver was surprised. Unfortunately we did not have time to wait in what could have been and hour plus line. Very disappointed that we missed the opportunity. Word of advise get their early....
  • Food was really delicious and authentic. The tacos are small (which is the authentic way)....so anticipate ordering at least 3. I ordered one chicken and one pomegranate...plus their quesadilla special of the day. Pomegranate didn't taste at all like the fruit - rather a unique fried substitute for meat. There is a small toppings bar for salsas. The nonalcoholic drink menu was awesome - love having unique, refreshing drinks like the watermelon drink I tried. Only counter seating, which made it awkward for a business meeting. And parking is tough...I was lucky to grab a spot nearby on the street after circling around a couple times.
