  • Barragan's House has been like. I'd just because it cannot be visited without reservation and you contact us by email reply came on the day after the dates is just swap in the exhibition and non-tour. Saw appearance just because there is no help, but from the outside it was simple ordinary home. Still in the tour does not and is useless. But I could see properly and can be booked by email. Will try again next time.

  • Just don't go. I am a culture vulture and was won over by the great reviews on google. The thing that cemented my disappointment is the customer service. First of all it is not possible to purchase 2 adults and 1 senior online in the same purchase which, in this day and age, is unacceptable. Fortunately I used paypal so as not to be stung by two transaction fees from my bank. Worse still, when we arrived the ticket checker asked me, in a very accusatory manner, if one of my party was a student. Obviously he had seen that one of the tickets I was claiming was at the concession rate of 200 pesos but he couldn't see why, even though online I had specified that the concession was for a senior. He made me feel like I had done something suspicious which set things off on a bad note. On top of this nobody welcomed us in a friendly manner to the attraction. Everybody was downbeat, something I didn't expect from what, in Mexico city, is a very expensive attraction. I don't think I saw one smile once from any of the attendants. Now for the guide. He spoke in a very low voice which is not really what you want when you are doing a guided tour. Perhaps, as it was his first tour of the day he was saving his voice for later. He never smiled. My tour was in Spanish and I do speak Spanish. It could be true that I am not accustomed to the Mexico City accent but I had to cup my ears to hear him. The commentary is pretty obvious anyway, example, 'opening the window allows more light in'. He was not dynamic. Perhaps you might be able to enjoy the house a bit more if you could take pictures but, oh no, you have to pay 500 pesos ($26) for the privilege. The entrance fee alone is expensive enough and to not be allowed to take pictures, just adds insult to injury. The house itself is boring and feels ghostly. It does not hold anything remarkable. There are a lot of religious references. The morbidness of the surroundings and constant feeling of 'watch where you step, don't touch anything' made me feel claustrophobic and want to leave. Neither is their any reference to his body of work. It is just a complete waste of time. I wish I had used that morning to go to a real place of cultural appreciation.
  • Beautiful interiors, wonderful craft, inspired design- impressive. One of the best encounters in Mexico City. Check their website- call or email to reserve a spot to tour the house. Open normal hours Monday through Friday, limited hours Sat. Closed Sunday. Nice gift shop.
  • Beautiful home designed by Luis Barragan. Book a visit a month ahead as the tours get filled fast.
  • La mejor arquitectura mexicana. Amé esa casa.
  • Truly inspiring
