We planned a visit to the Frida Kahlo Museo but it was Holy Week, and the line went around the corner and down the street. Another tourist said it is beautiful inside, but not worth that wait, "Go to Diego Rivera's...usually there's never a line!" And he was right! The walk to the studio was one of the best experiences... More

I expected to see more of his work, although I realize most is in other museums. No information about his life, or really his work. There was nothing in Frida's side except empty rooms with cabinetry being built. It was supposed to be a photographic tribute to her and there were 4 pictures. Off the beaten track and not worth...

I very much liked visiting Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s House-Studio in Mexico City, for being the place of residence and work of two of the most important artists in the 20th Century, The place consists of two main houses, a red one that represents Diego Rivera and a blue one, Frida Kahlo, both joined by a bridge, representing a...

after seeing Diego Rivera museum Anahucalli and Fridas blue house, it was so disappointing to visit this one. only one room had Diego Riveras things, the rest was just temporary exhibitions of contemporary artists.

I guess I liked this place more than most of the reviewers did. It doesn't have a big collection of DR's work, but I felt this place provides an intimate portrayal of his life. It was interesting that Frida stayed in a separate building on the premises - indicative of their tumultuous relationship. You'll be shown a short movie documentary... More

This small museum won't require a lot of time. The building has an architectural value as one of the first of it's kind in Mexico. A small collection of personal objects.

This museum consists of three buildings -Rivera's studio, a rarely used separte studio of Khalo and a neighboring studio of O'Gorman who designed these buildings. The rivera studio has some interesting artifacts but the other two buildings merely serve as sites for temproary exhibits. I am a big fan of Diego rivera and so I enjoyed my visit but I... More

Actually, having already visited Frida's Blue House in Coyoacan that same day, I expected a lot more. These buildings gave no sense of the two formidable talents that had lived and worked there, and instead all I saw was an empty shell. Color me disappointed.

Contains some nice pieces by DR and has the added bonus of a bit of Frida's work too along with her on-site abode. Must have been the place to hang out in the 30's.
