“So Many Photos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I couldn't help but take many photos at this museum. Everywhere I turned there was something interesting, unusual or beautiful to see. At the time we visited, a special exhibit with Frida's clothes and accessories was featured. Really enjoyed this. Check out the gift shop where I bought a Frida Kahlo paper doll.

“heartwarming and sad at the same time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

I have to admit that I had never heard of FK before visiting my friend in Mexico City, and it was a delight and in the end very moving experience for him to show me her art and take me to her house/museum. Poignantly she died the same year that I was born.
What a remarkable woman and incredibly talented artist - er art revealing and documenting much of her inner pain that stemmed from a terrible combination of polio and an horrific trolly-bus accident.
Her art speaks volumes, but this house where she lived has much more - the dresses anf special clothes she wore to hide her, as she saw them, imperfections. Her death bed and death mask - i was almost in tears upon seeing that. Where she worked, and a good few pieces of art and more joyoisly they way she decorated her home, often with fabulous (nowadays) pieces of ethnic and pre-colombian art hat were not much valued in her day.
It is a must see place in a wonderful city

“The bluest blue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

You'll LOVE this blue casa......we were so looking forward to this museum...and it didn't disappoint. You tour thru the house, there is an additional exhibit on of her, undergarments (supports for her back), dresses, and hair 'decorations', there is a gift shop also. I bought the ticket that allowed me to take photos (no flash). You see her and Diego's bedrooms, their art supplies, etc...... The gardens are lovely and cool. Read 'The Lacuna', a super book that fits in so well with Frida and Diego's home.

“Inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Having read Frida's biography and seen the movie of her life I was well prepared to enjoy the visit to her house. And I was not disappointed. The Museum is well kept and interesting in very way as you don't just see some of her works but the kind of life she led in that house defying all her health and medical problems.

“A Must Visit in Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you love her work this place is wonderful. If you don't know much about her then visit and learn. The house itself is in original condition and the gardens are a breath of fresh air.
