  • I loved it by todo.lo which means in the history as it was Frida and Diego. The House is in a preserved State. Payment of entry is not expensive. What is shocking is to pay the entrance fee and separate pay a bond authorization to take photographs. Supposedly if you know, you want to film and take pictures. Which should already be payment entry con.la. Once you entered cannot be back on the road. Or is... If it did not pay to the entrance, you can not return it and pay to take pictures. @vivadas! CN tourists and in addition are not friendly with the pampering. Just outside of the House photos take out without paying.

  • I don't like art, but I know the House of Trotsky and enjoying, I went thinking also. Just came across me with tickets sold out and I was pulled off. Must be the most expensive in the City Museum, I don't understand the reason for fame, cobra 200 pesos of ticket, plus 20 right of photo. I'm never there, I don't know why you didn't go the Museum in Brazil, I would like to know the reason for the success of this.

  • Website didn't let us buy tickets in advance which I would definitely recommend. Long lines and quite crowded. Exhibition was interesting but not exceptional.  more »

  • Beautiful home of Frida and her family which is now a museum open to public. I recommend getting your ticket before you get to the museum online. You will be able to get in much faster than people who will buy their tickets on site. Its always very crowded take time with you. The house is big and there its much to learn about the family. They have toilets which are not so clean. The staff speaks a little English. You can pay souvenirs with your credit card.
  • Was a great experience walking back in time,drinking coffee in the garden.I recommend you get there at 9am or 9:30am. You will have a wait about 30 minutes but trust me its the way to go.They only let a certain amonunt of people in and wait on till some come out and even if you buy tickets online you will have to like everyone else.Lines are very long and the sun is shining right on that line. Follow these instructions you won't be stead wrong.
  • Photos attached were as of February 13 2018 at 10:00am. A lady at the top front line said she came at 9:10. So I went to the entrance gate at 9:00 days later to be the first visitor to go into the museum. Therefor as a first visitor of the day, I could enjoy quiet museum for a while. Artists mind and heart are filled everywhere not only her paintings but interior decoration, furnitures , garden and building. Wonderfully artistic.
  • Pick your time carefully to visit this extraordinary place. We hit the holiday weekend celebrating the Mexican Revolution and stood in line for almost three hours to get in, but it was worth every minute. The museum was formerly the home of Frida Kahlo and her artist husband Diego Rivera. Her powerfully souls-bearing portraits are riveting. There is also a great deal of her personal history here, much of which was tragic. Walking through the house and gardens will transport you to another time. And you will fall in love with the soul of a beautiful but complex woman.
  • You'll learn a lot about Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera. You MUST buy tickets in advance online, or else you'll probably wait ~2 hours in line to enter. This museum is slightly more expensive than other museums in Mexico City, but it is very enjoyable. I would recommend spending some time in the garden/patio!
