We got there in a Friday and it was packed with 45 minutes wait. So we got the tickets online. Besides that we are sure it is a must visit.

If you come here expecting to see LOTS of Frida artwork...you won't. Not her most famous paintings anyway. The museum is more about her life here with Diego. The flow of the museum is a little weird and they only let you move a certain way because of it. There are plenty of annoying tourists in your way, too, so... More

Mecca for Frida Kahlo admirers, Casa Azul is quite crowded and requires timed tickets to visit. I had difficulty ordering tickets on the website,so had to ask the metr at the hotel and for him it took only few minutes, We arrived a little before out scheduled time and immediately were admitted. The house-museum and garden are very interesting and... More

For anyone who admires both Kahlo"s art and way she lived her life, this visit is as intimate an understanding of her courage to express her emotional experience, sometimes extremely tragic, that a visitor will get. If you are not familiar with Frida, you should watch the excellent movie "Frida" first. Worth getting tickets in advance.

I took the subway (approx 5 pesos, if I remember correctly) to the suburb of Coyoacan, and walked to join a queue approx 3/4 hour long, but was ok as there are street vendors with fruit and always someone to talk to... because the wait is well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed 3-4 hours in there residence, then while sitting... More

Just go and look, lean and celebrate a remarkable life. Her clothes, pictures and words are built from a foundation of surviving great pain.

The Friday Kahlo Museo is a must. There is a system for going so be sure to follow it. Primarily, be sure to get your tickets in advance and get there ahead of your actual time. The lines and crowds are managed very well, so you never feel the crowding. They control how many people go in at a time.... More

You feel as if you lived right in the same time as her. Many original pieces. You get a feel of how she used to live. It's a must see. I suggest you buy your tickets online or you will be waiting in line for 45 min to an hr to buy tickets.

The blue house amidst the beautiful gardens make for a peaceful and enjoyable visit. While the exhibits were of interest, the house itself and grounds were especially noteworthy. Well worth the time we stood in line to get tickets (maybe 40 minutes).

This is one of the best museums I've been to - it captures a lot of the vitality of the artist, and is somewhat reminiscent of Pablo Neruda's homes in Chile. Just do yourself a favor and get tickets in advance. They're easy to buy online, and cheap, and they can save you a huge headache if you come during... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
