  • I went because my spouse is an architect and really didn't know much about this place, but I left happy. The design, decoration and detail. Highly recommended

  • As a Mexico City inhabitant, I was happily surprised by this interesting museum which happens to be 10 minutes from my house on a closed and hard to find street. Although I had obviously heard of the ...  more »
  • Visit the knowledge of the eldest of architectural work, I first named Luis Barragan heard about from her mouth. Certainly separated and 一tsui have one room, inspired in the Japan architect Tadao Ando in feel, has become more and more. Tickets purchased on the Web. A little more expensive. Select the English only English and Spain tour. Tour 1 15 times. Heard people walking on the road due to missed the exit of the train station close to the station, but three times, but all Spain, so I felt the hand gestures. I think it's attractive to those who like modern architecture. Pink roof is impressive.

  • Came 30 min late the staff was super rude. Said they would close soon (we came at 1pm, they close at 2pm). They did not let us in nor reschedule nor reimburse us. Bad vibes this place. Summary: don't go here. Go to casa gilardi instead. It's just 3 blocks from there. They have the same architect plus a welcoming attitude.
  • An opportunity to get to know Barragan better, not only as an architect rather than as a man. And he was a bit creepy to be honest.. The casa is well preserved. The staff was not well informed on many issues that we asked. A must see in Mexico city for architects and most visitors.
  • Fascinating look into the home of Luis Barragán. Well worth the entry fee. Great tours offered in English and Spanish.
  • 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.
  • They bounced us back and didn't refund our tickets. The English speaking guide (a guy) was super rude almost slammed the door in our face.

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.
