  • I went back for my second time to the Frida Kahlo Museum. There was a gap of about 12 years and I have to say it's certainly gotten more popular. If you can, book a ticket in advance. I ended up waiti...  more »

  • 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.
  • It was a great experience getting to learn about Frida. I would recommend learning about her first before visiting. Since I didn't know much about her, visiting her home didn't mean much until I watched a documentary they were showing outside of the house. Also they had an extra exhibit where you get to view the clothes she wore and learn a little more about her accident. It was very interesting.
  • If you are a fan, go there! BUT: Be there on time. You will have to wait although you have an online ticket. Pretty crowded. Exibit more about her life unfortunately limited artwork.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Great information provided. Awesome to see so many of her works and photos in one place. Just remember to buy tickets online the day before- they sell out daily!
