We decided last minute to check out the museum and were pleasantly surprised to find out it was free (we went on a Sunday). Photos were additional $30 MXP but well worth it. The security on site was very strict about the rules. Having recently seen the movie, "Frida", it was a real trip to go through the houses that... More

Fascinating studio and insight into the interesting life of the three of the greatest world renown Mexican artists, Juan O'Gorman, the architect and artist that made the fabulous mural of the UNAM, the muralist Diego Rivera, and his wife, the great Frida Khalo.

If you are even remotely interested in Mexican art you need to go here. It was one of my favorite places. Mind you, I'm not a huge Diego Rivera fan but this place made me feel somewhat connected and I loved it. It was especially nice because it was a Tuesday and there were hardly any tourist.

I really enjoyed touring around Diego Rivera's old studio. Many of his former projects are still there and it is set up the same way it was when he was alive. A lot of his art is not showcased here, but it gives you an idea of how he worked. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area... More

This is a little out of the way if you are using the metro. There isn't lots to see but Diego's studio is interesting to visit

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.

Neighborhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
