  • Nature, art, history, beauty, warmth, a mystical aura surrounds this magnificent oasis worthy of a people as the Mexican, an extraordinary experience. I am proud to know that there are places so in my country.

  • My favorite museum in Mexico City! Some of the most famous Frida's paintings are here. Extensive green fields with Xoloescuincle dogs and Peacocks everywhere as well as little food trucks. Although it is a bit far from the center, it is definitely worth it.
  • It has a very good collection. They also have great temporary exhibitions. The gardens are gorgeous. Also a must: visit the día de muertos ofrenda between October and January each year.
  • Excellent grounds, amazing old building, large selection of Diego Rivera art and other artifacts. A nice place to wonder around and relax, get there early to avoid traffic and crowds
  • A tranquil oasis right off the Tren Ligero. Impeccable rooms full of Diegos and Fridas. A shame you can't take interior photos.
  • A little bit out of the way on the outskirts of Mexico City but WORTH it for any lover of Mexico, Mexican art, Diego Rivera, "Aztec" hairless dogs and especially the paintings of Frida Kahlo.
