  • Worth seeing – for a permit to take photos to pay has himself not really pay off in my opinion...

  • We took a taxi from Zocalo, which turned out to be a major (and expensive) exercise during peak hour. Still, although it is a small place, we enjoyed the visit very much. It helps if you like colourfu...  more »
  • It is interesting as it shows the life of a person who, despite its difficulties, arranged it to remain in history, found a way to make it through the local culture.

  • While Frida Kahlo certainly is the most celebrated artist in Mexico along with his husband. This place does not really portrait her artistic talent. The house used to be her childhood home and her displayed artworks are limited. Be prepared to wait in line for hour with other gringos. The admission (120) is on the expensive end for museums in Mexico and the audio guide is an extra 70. Personally I do not recommend the visit. Not worth
  • I liked it but as mentioned before get there early. You can't expect so see anyone's entire works. I was thankful to see what they had.
  • YASSSSS FRIDA KAHLO IS MY ARTIST BAE
  • A beautiful house and museum, great for fans of Frida Kahlo's art or life. There is often a very long line to enter (we waited about 45 minutes, which I understand is average). The staff seemed a bit snobby, and detracted a little from the experience.
  • We didnt actually go in. We caught the subway out to Coyocan. The line was huge for tickets to the museum. We got told you could be sneaky and buy the tickets online but the site crashed when we tried. My advice is pre buy your tickets the day before. Hopefully one i get to go bavk again and can actually go inside.
