  • GET A TICKET BEFOREHAND! It can be sold out for days and it’s far away from the city center so don’t take a chance! It’s a cool place though, seeing actual garments from paintings was very cool. Not a lot of self portraits though. Be sure to check out other places in the area, there’s great restaurants in the area, the Leon Trotsky Museum is also a highlight.
  • It was a cool experience. The price is reasonable 12.50 (for foreigners) and about half the price for those that live in Mexico. It's recommended to purchase tickets online (beforehand- they typically sellout the day of). Also they don't sell tickets in-person. You can purchase a sticker to be allowed to take pictures inside. I would also read their policy on the items not allowed to take inside.
  • First things first: Buy tickets in advance! Otherwise you won’t get in, because it’s very popular and tickets are sold out easily. I really like the vibe here, which has been carefully maintained. It’s a place where you can understand more of the creative and miserable life of Frida. It’s a place that suffers from intense memories, both publicly and and privately. It’s a once in a lifetime experience. I wish I could come back again and had a new start—only i couldn’t.
  • Truly a special experience. Order your tickets in advance, and still try to arrive early. The museum/house is just sort of a magical space. The colors, the light, the shadows would be enough but there is also some really amazing art to see. Highly recommend!
  • Buy your tickets in advance online! Ticket purchases are for time slots and they fill up quickly. I was able to purchase 2 days in advance for 3pm slot, it was still crowded. If you want to take photos cost is 30 pesos per person. I enjoyed my time and interesting experience.
