  • I wasn't going to visit, but I'm glad I did. Buy your ticket ahead of time. Pathway in museum clearly labeled. Interesting to learn more about her life and see her artwork and clothing. Restrooms on.....  more »
  • So cool to see where Frida lived and worked. The displays were wonderful and the staff are very helpful and willing to answer questions.  more »
  • Took an Uber from my hotel to the museum. Upon arrival we waited in line as they had specific times for groups. I personally felt this was definitely a tourist stop, but would not go back...  more »
  • If you are a fan Of her work then you will love it. But tickets beforehand to avoid the lines. It’s always busy. Also worth the price to purchase ability to take photos. Great neighborhood surrounding the museum.
  • The museum is a nice place to visit if you love Frida Kahlo, but don't expect to see a lot of her art. The house is beautiful as a visit but was disappointed by the lack of art pieces you could see. It's a museum dedicated to the life she and Diego shared in the house, so keep that in mind when going. Also, buy tickets online ahead of time!
  • Tip 1: Make sure to buy tickets online or with your hotel’s concierge before visiting the beautiful Frida Kahlo museum. The line was a few hours long to get in without a reservation! Tip 2: Bring cash as they charge you extra to take pictures! I almost took off a star for this given this unusual move. It cost $30 pesos per device when we were there in early 2020. This museum is different from the usual experience as Diego and Frida both lived in this house. Going through their kitchen, studio, and other parts of the house was certainly a unique experience that most other museums do not offer. The explanation is in English and Spanish as well, so that was helpful.
  • The house was very cool and definitely worth a visit. It was smaller than I expected, so you only need to plan an hour so to see everything. The attraction here is really the house and the artifacts, as most do the art has been moved to museums, but it's so colorful and informative that you won't be sorry you visited. Book tickets in advance!!!
  • Museum is nice, but small and crowded. We waited for 4 hours in line. If you don't have a ticket and want to go. Come early, we arrived at 08.30 and where able to get in at 12.20 on a Saturday. People that arrived at 07.00 were able to get in at 10.00ish. There is no information about waiting hours and if you can get in. That's a missed chance for the museum. Basically this museum is focused on tour groups and not for individuals, which is a shame. Note that you cant pay in the shop or for your camera fee with 500 notes. You might end up without photos and souvenirs after your 4 hour queue.
