The Frida Kahlo Museum (Spanish: Museo Frida Kahlo), also known as the Blue House (La Casa Azul) for the structure's cobalt-blue walls, is a historic house museum and art museum dedicated to the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. It is located in the Colonia del Carmen neighborhood of Coyoacán in Mexico City. The building was Kahlo's birthplace, the home where she grew up, lived with her husband Diego Rivera for a number of years, and where she later died in a room on the upper floor. In 1957, Diego Rivera donated the home and its contents in order to turn it into a museum in Frida's honor.
The museum contains a collection of artwork by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and other artists along with the couple's Mexican folk art, pre-Hispanic artifacts, photographs, memorabilia, personal items, and more. The collection is displayed in the rooms of the house which remains much as it was in the 1950s. It is the most popular museum in Coyoacán and one of the most visited in Mexico City.

Beautiful home of Frida and her family which is now a museum open to public. I recommend getting your ticket before you get to the museum online. You will be able to get in much faster than people who will buy their tickets on site. Its always very crowded take time with you. The house is big and there its much to learn about the family. They have toilets which are not so clean. The staff speaks a little English. You can pay souvenirs with your credit card.

Photos attached were as of February 13 2018 at 10:00am. A lady at the top front line said she came at 9:10. So I went to the entrance gate at 9:00 days later to be the first visitor to go into the museum. Therefor as a first visitor of the day, I could enjoy quiet museum for a while. Artists mind and heart are filled everywhere not only her paintings but interior decoration, furnitures , garden and building. Wonderfully artistic.

Pick your time carefully to visit this extraordinary place. We hit the holiday weekend celebrating the Mexican Revolution and stood in line for almost three hours to get in, but it was worth every minute. The museum was formerly the home of Frida Kahlo and her artist husband Diego Rivera. Her powerfully souls-bearing portraits are riveting. There is also a great deal of her personal history here, much of which was tragic. Walking through the house and gardens will transport you to another time. And you will fall in love with the soul of a beautiful but complex woman.

Great museum experience. Lots of good bilingual signage (yay) so much to see and while it was full of visitors it flowed really well. Remember to book your tickets online the day before or earlier, as it sells out and they have timed tickets so not too many are there at once. Includes cafe if you get hungry and lots of public toilets so you can happily be there for a few hours. Must see in CDMX

I'm at Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's House, today is a museum! You can feel the presence of their auras, is incredible, how you go from one room to another, and actually feel, the energies, the feelings, even your mind begins to wonder and think. The garden is fresh, peaceful, there's always lots of people here from all over the world, but it flows peacefully, tranquil. The sound of water flowing from the fountain of the frogs is tremendously peaceful. I can only imagine in those days, how much inspiration came from this gardens.

Reviewing such a place is almost silly! It is amazing!!! Of course, the art and history are both amazing, but the place itself is also excellent. They really know how to handle the super high volume they attract. They are also extremely nice and helpful. The gardens are beautiful, the place is clean-you can't beat it. One important tip: Buy your tickets online!!! It cuts your wait in half, and when I was there, they sold out at the box office.

We waited four hours even though we arrived early (around 9 a.m.). There are no benches so you have to sit on the ground. The queue is very chaotic- there was a couple waiting in front of us who invited 9 more people in who didn't wait in line. We saw other people cutting the line too... the museum itself was beautiful but crowded. The overall experience was pretty exhausting.

Was a great experience walking back in time,drinking coffee in the garden.I recommend you get there at 9am or 9:30am. You will have a wait about 30 minutes but trust me its the way to go.They only let a certain amonunt of people in and wait on till some come out and even if you buy tickets online you will have to like everyone else.Lines are very long and the sun is shining right on that line. Follow these instructions you won't be stead wrong.

Being able to see Frida's home and her studio was very moving. I am still thinking about her in her day bed looking out over her gardens. The museum is very well maintained and curated. We arrived just before it opened and there were about 50 people in line ahead of us already but the line moved fairly quickly. The audio guide was very helpful and easy to navigate. I will definitely come back here next time I'm in Mexico City!

The museum is beautiful and well preserved. However, My family experience was ruined by the staff, who are rude and inefficient. They always have a no for an answer. They make sure it can’t be done. No customer service whatsoever. It is always crowded and all cramped. Will not come back.

This is definitely a must see when visiting Mexico City. at first I was a little annoyed at the fact that I had to pay over double what the locals had to pay but it was definitely more than worth it. It took us a couple hours almost to get through the whole exhibit. I would definitely recommend a weekday because we came on a Sunday and the line was wrapped around the block. Also make sure to book online since the line for the ticket box is even longer and it's worth it to pay the extra 30 peso to be able to take photos.

Very interesting museum about the life and art of Frida Kahlo one the most important Mexican artist. The house and gardens are both very beautiful. You can take photos but you have to pay for this beyond the entrance.This museum is right the house where she was born and lived with his husband Diego Rivera also a great artist. You have to go early in the morning because there is always much people to see this place.

Beautiful place! The line was long if you want to buy tickets at the door. Buy them online and you’ll have almost no wait time. I recommend paying to be able to take pictures of the inside of the house. If you do not buy your tickets ahead of time and come at peak time you might wait about 2 hrs.

A friend suggested that we go online to buy our tickets, and it was the single most useful piece of advice we got in Mexico City! Do not wait! Buy your tickets in advance, and absolutely pay for the photography permit, even if you don't normally take a bunch of photographs. It's an exceptionally reasonable price, and otherwise you won't be able to take any outside of the garden. Go early, and then make a day of it in Coyoacan.

Very cool museum which shows part of the story of Frida Kahlo and the people around her. This museum was actually the place where she lived with her husband Diego Rivera. It has pieces of art from both of them and the stuff they used. If you want to talk pictures inside you must pay an special fee (the same fee regardless of your camera) With your ticket you can also visit the Diego Rivera’s studio (25-40 minuet drive from there) It usually gets very crowded, but you can buy your tickets online before you arrived to avoid a two hour wait line to enter the facility.
