If you love Frida Kahlo, go there, its overwhelming. Especially seeing here bed where she painted many self portraits while recovering from an accident. Its a lot bigger than I expected, and wonderful. There is a fee to take pictures, but very cheap, so I recommend paying it, also the cost to get in was very inexpensive. I also recommend... More

Her life, struggles, triumphs and defeats are part of Mexico history...not only artistic history, but political too. Mrs Kahlo was an amazing women living in a men world and left her imprint in the Mexican people.....her home is her...do not missed this piece of history

This is a must especially if you know her story or have seen the film, we were enthralled. Be aware of a long queue in the hot sun and we got there early. Dont miss the temporary dress display at the back of ther garden.

I've know of Frida Kahlo's work and her many self portraits, but after visiting her house I understand how her physicial limitations and constant pain contributed to making her such a fabulous artist. This is a must see sight.

When i found out this place was her actual home, it was a no-brainer and I had to visit. worth every penny. or peso lol. being able to put yourself in her shoes in what she saw on a daily basis was amazing. seeing what she left behind and how she lived was better in person then through some movie/video....

0 stars I had one day in Mexico City. I booked this tour & was told pick up would be at 8.20am from my hotel. After an hour I phoned the company to be told the tour had left as pick up to my hotel was late - 9am. Clearly liars. I was waiting for them in the lobby at... More

Did you ever feel curious to walk the steps of amazing Frida Kahlo? What about see her drawings with your own eyes? When you visit her house, you'll feel the emotions and if you love her art, you'll be so intriged by her personality and environment that you will love her even more!

This thing where you can't take pictures unless you pay a fee is ridiculous. Talk about nickeling and diming people.

This was a fantastic insight into the life of one of Mexico's most famous artists. Can get very busy though - I suggest buying a ticket online to skip the long queue at the museum! We arrived early and spent some time exploring the neighbourhood of Coyoacan - recommended!

This is a very popular spot. When we got there at noon, there were lots of tour buses and a huge line to get in. So we had lunch and came back at 3pm and the line was gone. This is the house that Frida and Diego lived in and belonged to Frida's parents, so she grew up here. It's... 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.
