  • The Museo Casa Luis Barragan is the home and studio of one of the most famous architects in Mexico. The use of color and light creates magical places all around the house. Try to visit on a sunny day ...  more »
  • While we were glad to see parts of the interior of Barragan's home, I was surprised by those that were off limits. Not until the end of the tour did we find out that the studio was being renovated and...  more »
  • This house is an absolute must see for anyone with an interest in architecture, it's a stunning house with a very good English tour available. You do need to book well in advance and it is an extra 50...  more »

  • 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.
