  • If you know anything about Art and in Mexico City. Museo Frida Kahlo is a must to see and visit. Her Story, Her Life, Her Art. Such a lovely place to enjoy and see her life. A must to see in Mexico Ci...  more »
  • After studying art most of my life I had managed to miss Freida's life story. It's quite astounding, the Museo is in a really lovely part of the city with excellent street food. I'm only sorry that I ...  more »
  • I think it's a good visit when there's a lot of time to visit the CDMX; when there is not much time, there are other more important attractions that are more worth visiting,

  • The Museum itself is fantastic, though there's a huge wait to get in even in off peak season and even if you get there early. We didn't buy tickets prior to going and had to wait in a huge line, whereas those who brought tickets had priority with a shorter line. Those who booked the tour associated with the museum got priority above all and didn't have to wait at all. Great service and a really lovely museum though and wonderful to see how they lived. You have to pay an extra 30 pesos for permission to take photographs. There's a gift store, Cafe and bathrooms.
  • You must get tickets on line. Otherwise the wait is just so long. The museum is her old home in Mexico City. It houses lots of her belongings but not a lot of her actual art. Space is relatively small and crowds are large so you can’t browse or wander. That said it’s a special place and I recommend it. The public market a few blocks down is a great spot for lunch!
  • To be honest, I never knew much about her and I learned a lot and I got so inspired! What a strong and positive woman! The house is beautiful! The garden and the interiors are just so cute. and the museum is not too big so you don't get overwhelmed. You get just as much information as you can handle and enjoy Frida, her life, art and house.
  • The line is huge and there’s no shade while you wait. You get a pretty good student discount but you have to pay extra to be able to take pictures. Pretty interesting on the inside tho. This woman had a pretty tragic life yet she was depicted has a funny and grateful person. On the other hand the American tourists get mad because they can’t wear their hats inside the house.
  • It's a beautiful blue house and it took me to an era where i had glimpse of frida's illustrious and painful life.She was an amazing lady with a art gift that no body had. In this house you will see her bedrooms, Kitchen, Patio, Work area, library and other places which will motivate you for your years to come. Ticket was around 160 pesos and there was a cafeteria and gift shop inside. Tips: - Go early as on holidays there is long queue, - No water and food allowed inside. - Go through the Freida's biography movie before you visit
