  • We went without too much pretence, but we loved it. The exhibition of Frida is the most popular, but the Diego Rivera in charmed. Fine structure in the Museum, with dogs pre-Columbians, beautiful garden and the cheap and good restaurant. Recommend.

  • I'm living in CDMX a year and a half and I was just recommending this site: really Belmonte! It is in Xomichilco (where do the boat rides), is composed of several environments and centered on Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera. Beautiful pictures of both, beautiful photos of the era, has hearing aids... in addition the Museum has some typical things for sale, a restaurant that I not met but I was left with the desire to have lunch there and incredibly has plenty of turkeys! I had never seen so many turkeys together! The entrance costs 100 Pesos for foreigners and 40 for locals. Do not miss it!

  • This museum is worth visiting it. It is a very good option if you are going to visit Xochimilco since it is very close. The place is very nice. It has a well maintained spacious park and as data curious, is filled with peacocks, which are loose and you can see them among the people. It has a good collection of works by Diego Rivera and when I visited had an exhibition of Frida Kahlo very complete and very exciting. It was also the exhibition of offense issue by the day of the dead. I liked it very much!

  • One of the best museums in the City, the gardens, temporal exhibitions and main collection and house are always great. they have special dates in wich they prepare events like in the "día de muertos" or "semana santa". There's also a cafeteria with good food
  • Wasn't amazing for art work but the grounds are great to walk through and enjoy. Worth a visit if you are in the area but wouldnt travel all the way from downtown mexico city for it.
  • Great Museum with some variety in the art work available as well as a nice grounds to stroll through. Tuesday is free entrance.
  • Nice house to walk around. Was a bit disappointed cause frida kahlo work wasn't available as it was exhibited in Florida.
  • Except of a beautiful building ... all was wrong. 1/ entrance fee: 20 pesos for publico nacional, 75 pesos (over 350%) turismo extranjero. What is the difference between human beings? We went there together with our Mexican friends and had a different prices. Why this differencies??? (No English translation, no guide...). 2/ entering the room, you hat to put your cap/hat down (???) Are we in the church? 3/ can not wear my small backpack at the back (???). I totaly understand this in a places where there are many people, small place and you can easily throw things away from its place. But there was non of this. Huge space, everything on the wall, nearly no people. 4/ can not go close to the paintings, photographs (which some of them are miniatures), or to the glass showcas with jewelery (where detailes are the most interesting part) next to the wall as there are alarms buzzing anytime you go closer. I never experienced this. Either you do not show the small objects or make it accesible. I do not want to listen to this anoying sound following by anouncment from the guard I am too close. Go to other museums and get inspired. I can highly reccomend Soumaya Museum. It is for free (for everyone) and you can get close to the glass showcases with no trouble. 5/ some of the expositions were close I had a very nice day till entering this place. Being two months in Mexico, I am sorry to say that, this was the place with the worst approach.

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.
