  • Tour registration is sent back and forth with a margin is better. Tickets before they visit the guided tour, and a small group of about 10 people. I got a ban on filming inside the can is the rooftop terrace. And in fact, in pictures of colourful environment feels on the skin. Hillard House in the neighborhood and also visit is recommended.

  • Always recommend my friends to go see this museum out of the common. Unveils the life of Barragán and his work, his way of creating.

  • Although the entry is very expensive (400pesos) and you are not allowed to take pictures due to “photocopy rights” (unless you pay another 500pesos) - it is truly worth your visit as an architecture a...  more »

  • They don’t have English interpretation even tho they know we don’t know any Spanish. I paid for my camera however I was not able to take many photos because they won’t allow me to be apart from the interpreter. And to be honest, don’t pay for your device. So many ppl are trying to take photos without paying... and agree with all those 1 star review that the staff was VERY RUDE.
  • Was very excited to go but the lady at the entrance denied us access as we didn’t speak Spanish and therefore couldn’t join the tour. Shame!
  • I was a walk in and they where kind enough to accommodate me with a group. If you are an architect, if you are Mexican, you will love this place. The house that 2nd Pritzker winner designed and lived in.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
