  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • I visited the Frida Kahlo museum during Xmas holiday and wish someone would have warned me that there is a three hour wait and to get there about an hour or two before they open at 10am. On my first visit i got there at 12pm and it was already late because they could not guarantee my entrance to the museum. The museum closes at 5pm and the line was already very long by 12pm. I will take approximately about an hour and 30 min. to see all the exhibits. Well worth the visit!
  • I'm at Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's House, today is a museum! You can feel the presence of their auras, is incredible, how you go from one room to another, and actually feel, the energies, the feelings, even your mind begins to wonder and think. The garden is fresh, peaceful, there's always lots of people here from all over the world, but it flows peacefully, tranquil. The sound of water flowing from the fountain of the frogs is tremendously peaceful. I can only imagine in those days, how much inspiration came from this gardens.
  • I'm a huge Frida fan, so I didn't mind the long wait in line and even the cost to enter. It's a proper museum, not just a home open to the public (which is what I had in mind). In fact, you can't even take pictures unless you pay a fee upfront; I was quickly scolded by a staff member. That said, my favorite part was the exhibit of her dresses and jewelry. There is a cafe inside and a stunning courtyard where you can enjoy the beautiful blue walls and green palm trees. Don't miss the Frida gift shop on the way out!
  • Make sure to purchase your tickets online before hand. When you arrive there are two lines; one is for the purchase of tickets, the other is for those who purchased the tickets before hand. The wait was over an hour for those who did not purchase their tickets. There is a charge to be able to take pictures inside so make sure to purchase the permit. You will have to check in your bag or packs, so make sure to take your wallets out of your bag to carry it with you. There is a shop to make purchase, and small cafe inside. The exhibits are great and your visit to this museum will be one of the highlights of your trip.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
