We arrived one hour before opening (11am on a Wednesday), and waited patiently for three hours. It’s the downside of its success (mass tourism). Some people were successful buying tickets online way in advance). My girlfriend really liked it, I personally don’t think any museum...More

I recommend paying for the audio tour. Amazing artwork, gorgeous garden, rich history, nicely done. Audio tour helps to understand the life of Frida, her relationship with Diego, family history and art in general. One of my faborite experiences in Mexico City.

My sisters and I found the museum very insightful about Frida and her life. Even if you are not a fun of her art, her life story is well depicted and her art talent comes alive. The museum is small but well done.

This house museum is one of my favorite places. It’s important to get the excellent audio guide to understand what you are seeing. Take your time, look, listen, and learn about this amazing artist.

Pesos! Also, take $30 pesos to buy a photo permit. That way you can take photos inside the museum.

Purchasing online tickets for Frida Kahlo Museum (2 Replies)
I'd like to purchase tickets ahead of time online for the Frida Kahlo Museum. There are different tickets prices for "extranjeros," "estudiantes," and "ninos." What category do you think I should choose for my 12 and 14 year old kids? Thank you!

Usually discounts are only for Mexican nationals, its the way the cultural financing works. I would call and ask. There will likely be English speaking people on the other end of your phone call.

green VW cab clarification (2 Replies)
We recently had a quick stay in Mexico DF and used two separate VW green cabs going to and returning from the Frida Kahlo museum. On arriving at the museum a "sitio" cabdriver approached us telling us not to use these VW cabs because they are very dangerous, for what reason I am not sure. Both the VW cabs quoted us and charged us the same amount of money. The sitio cab quoted us a price 2 and a half times more. We are regular people and do not wear or carry anything of value. I do not want to...More

Response fromjcs27|
In Mexico City, cabs that don't come from a sitio are dangerous because it's hard to tell if the driver is legitimate. There have been many cases where green taxis are carjacked and then used to rob and kidnap unsuspecting locals and tourists. Taxis from sitios are safe because, when sitting in a sitio, the drivers know each other, and the police would be called if someone who isn't supposed to be there shows up. I'm not sure if hailing a "roving" sitio cab is any safer than hailing a...More
