  • Unfortunately, not worth the money or effort. The house is absolutely stunning, but is meaningless without the appropriate context. The process to buy tickets is not easy - American credit cards do...

  • This man is a national treasure. The sense I got with no signage , only access to the back garden, was this man’s memory was not being curated by people who care about sharing it.

  • Don’t understand the bad reviews that are on here - do note advanced booking is required as stated on the website and new tickets are released on Tuesdays 4PM Mexico time. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and even though our group had lots of questions and the tour overran a little, he took the time to explain everything. The insights into Barragan’s life and his style were interesting. If you like architecture, I highly recommend this museum.
  • We had an amazing tour with a very well educated and charming guide, who was able to answer all questions. The groups are small, so book ahead. The house is very interesting and you get to see almost everything. The photography fee is quite high, 500 pesos, I would say rather skip it and buy a nice book about Barragan.
  • The house is beautiful, it would be better to be able to go through the house alone since the guided tour interferes with the experience more that it enriches it. The price is out of proportion, a single entry for nationals ($338) is almost worth a two-day minimum salary in Mexico, and is close to the price of the Louvre (€17=$397), this without the photography permission which is $500 (=€21) for a total of $897 (€38) a visit… outrageous
  • The tickets didn’t go public the day they said they would. I monitored there website every hour and still almost got sold out. This is one of my favorite places I visited and the tour was good. $25usd or $500 pesos to take pictures is steep.
  • Very beautiful place but the prices are outrageous ($ 500 per person) + $500 per device to take pictures!!! This is not intend to allow the acess to everyone... We were also chocked that a woman was refused to enter because she was with her child, younger than 12 years old, the minimum age to access the museum - the reason wad that the child could disturb others.
