Top ways to experience Museo Frida Kahlo
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Coyoacán
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.

    You really get to know her
    If you have any interest in Frida Kahlo, you're going to love it. They really make you feel like you know her, and like she just walked out of the room a minute before you entered it. I went in not knowing much about her (though I'd seen the movie), and was still moved by it. It's a peaceful, respectful place to pay homage to a towering woman. TIP: By your tickets WAY in advance. This place is popular and will likely be sold out if you just roll up looking to walk in. But they do a good job timing the entries so it's never too crowded.

    Great
    Buy tickets on line and turn up 15 mins early. Quite busy, but the museum only lets a certain number in at a time, so for a top attraction that everyone wants to see, it's not too bad. The place is colourful and relaxing. Plenty of artwork on display, but we went for the look and feel of the place which was great and we loved it.

    Great tour guide
    5 stars for Fernando. Communicative (we were in touch via WhatsApp before the experience, he provided Google map coordinates to find him prior to the tour, let us know when he arrived) and super knowledgeable and personable. He made an effort to get to know everyone on the tour, to connect and make us feel comfortable. I especially loved the way Fernando contextualized the history of the neighborhood. It was a great insight into Frida’s life. Small warning that it’s a bit heavy. To bear witness to Frida’s experience is to confront a lot of pain, even as a spectator. That’s part of the magic though so don’t shy away :)

    Ticket system is horrible. Ticket touts purchased all tickets with help of museum.
    The museum itself was good. Enjoyed it very much. But the ticket selling system was horrible. We arrived to the museum 30 mins before the opening time. A small queue already there. We were told that all tickets are sold for the next 10 days ,tickets can only be purchased via online ticket touts which are selling for double the original price. We saw a lady who talked to a museum staff to buy off a book for ticket for the week after. Talked to staff of museum, they said they have no policy to stop the ticket touts to do that. So unless you stay in Mexico City for more then 10 days, otherwise it is impossible to buy official ticket at all, but through ticket touts online. Very disappointed to the museum in this aspect.

    I've been to this museum twice and will probably always return when I visit magnificent Mexico City. Frida's spirit is so present, it's easy to imagine that she's in the room with us, watching the mark she's left on the world in disbelief. Or maybe she knew all along how great she was. At any rate, you should go.

    Interesting for history more than art
    Great to pair this museum with the Trotsky museum. Kahlo and Trotsky were friends and lived in the same neighborhood. Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s house was much grander, known as the “blue house” for the azure walls around the garden. The museum contains lots of photos, furniture, decorations and information about her life, but not a lot of her artwork. Even though we bought timed tickets several days in advance, there were long lines to enter. We spent a good 2 hours there and would highly recommend a visit.

    Inspiring, well-documented, organized, and uplifting !
    We really enjoyed this museum. Children were free and tickets for adults were not a problem as long as you pay prior to your visit. No tickets are available at the museum itself so must purchase online and they sell out quickly. Also, there is a small fee for taking pictures which seems a little ridiculous. The museum was organized and well done, providing viewers with a great sense of what Frida faced and her optimistic attitude. Very inspirational. The garden is very beautiful as well and great place to take a break. Gift shop is next to garden but did not really appeal to us - lots of cool flea markets nearby where better priced and similar items can be purchased. Lastly, do not forget to check out Frida’s dresses! Although often overlooked, this is almost a second museum. Many panels explaining the relationship between Frida’s challenges and dressing style - as well as her determined attitude. Almost all signs were in English and easy to read. Definitely recommend and is located in a very artsy neighborhood!

    You should buy your tickets online and arrive 15 minutes early to see this cool museum. It can get pretty crowded, but they only let a certain number of people in at a time, so it's not too bad. The place looks really nice and has lots of cool art to look at. We just liked the way it felt inside, it was really relaxing. We had a great time and think you should go check it out too.

    SMALL WELL DONE MUSEUM
    I didn’t do a tour. I went solo. This is a tiny little museum but with a discount and a guide, I think women, in particular, will really appreciate hearing Frida Kahlo’s full story. I had a short time but I really enjoyed it. I didn’t realize how close to death she was her whole life … yet she lived SO MUCH. So ahead of her time.

    Loved it!
    Charming little house! A fabulous example of Mexican architecture and also a well maintained glimpse into the tragic life of frida kahlo. Before this I didn’t really know much about the lives of frida kahlo and Diego Rivera. I just knew that they were celebrated icons. Little did I know that they had such interesting lives and this really helped me imagine how they lived and what inspired them. It kind of needs to restoration and a fresh coat of paint as the blue walls are starting to fade.

I highly recommend visiting the Frida Kahlo museum, and if you’re English it’s worth paying the extra pesos to have an audio guide. The house is beautiful with so many original artifacts and paintings, and it’s a great way to get a feel for the colourful character that Frida Kahlo was. It’s a very popular attraction so to avoid VERY long queues, it’s best to book ahead.

Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists, if not favorite. I was sooo looking forward to going here. However, I was waiting in line for hours (BUY TICKETS ONLINE prior to visiting), it was way too crowded inside to actually enjoy anything or take many photos, and barely any of her original artwork is there. It was still cool seeing her house and some of her clothing and such, but not worth the price. It was the most expensive museum I visited in Mexico City (and I visited tons), yet the smallest and most crowded. Unless you're super obsessed with Frida Kahlo, there's lots of better things to do with your time in this huge city (in my opinion).

“La Casa azul” is a must see if you are in CDMX. The museum is designed to make the visitor feel welcome into a private home but still provides valuable information and insight into the life and work of Frida Kahlo and her circle. One must buy a ticket in advance as the number of visitors is carefully controlled for fairly obvious reasons. You will probably want to take a taxi as it is quite a walk from the Métro. Plan to explore historical Coyoacan as well; no need in my opinion to book a tour of this “town within a city.”

You queue whether you have bought a ticket online or not( longer if not though) no shade
Cloak room for large bags, get an audio guide at the same place. Very busy. You have to buy a camera pass if you want to take photos inside. Has a coffee shop and toilets. Building is lovely. Not many of Fridas paintings there though. You can go into her bedroom, kitchen and living rooms. There was an exhibition of her clothes. Staff are all grumpy.
Glad I went but wouldn’t go back. You can’t soak up the atmosphere as it is heaving

Frida Kahlo is an artistic icon that you need to embrace and understand, and visiting this museum will allow you to sumerge into her life. The museum is very eclectic and vibrant, and will allow you to take an intimate look into Frida’s and Diego Rivera’s life. Two tips for you, get your tickets on line and choose the 10 or 10:30 time slots which will allow you to enjoy the museum at your leisure before the crowds arrive. If you dare to show up without a ticket bring your patience with you, we arrived at 10:00 and the wait line to buy tickets had over a 100 people. You have to pay extra to take pictures, do it, you wont regret it!

If you are fan of Frida Kahlo you will love this museum. It gives a fantastic insight into her private life whilst also displaying some of her amazing art pieces.

Be aware that there are very large queues to get into the museum even if you have prebooked tickets. I would recommend gettin there early

Take advantage of the gift shop whilst you are inside as after you leave the team arent very helpful to let you back in to spend your money.

Got there at 8 AM, 2 hours before they opened on a Sunday and the line was already 40 people long. At 9, a literal busload of more people showed up. Gradually the line ahead of me grew as it turned out half of those waiting in line were holding places for larger groups. At 10, a museum worker came around and counted us and announced that they were likely going to run out of tickets... for the day. As in until 5. So, basically the folks who arrived and joined the back of the queue at 10 were going to wait another 5-6 hours???

Because the house is small, visits are limited to 40 people every half hour. I regret spending an entire morning and early afternoon on this when there is so much more in the area to see.

Very little art to speak of inside. Feeling duped.

Even if you aren't a big Kahlo fan, this is a lovely place to spend an hour and get a glimpse of a private residence built around a courtyard garden. We purchased tickets online about a month in advance and arrived 15 minutes before our 3pm entry time. We had to wait in a short line (they gave us umbrellas to shield us from the sun) and were let in at 3pm. There is a cafe / snack bar in the garden, as well as a temporary exhibit spaces where her dresses and self-made corset back-braces were on display. We took an uber from the Centro Historico, which was easy and cheap.

Beautifully displayed works of art, house hold furniture and personal effects. Lovely gardens where you can sit for a while. It’s quiet compact so crowd control is necessary. But on line ticket and try aim for weekday as weekends are very busy. It’s not very clearly signed for the house entrance ... but it’s just inside the turnstile on your left. Queuing outside can be hot so bring water and a hat. You need to pay 30 pesos for photography (even for phone) but I don’t think everyone was doing this and still taking photos. It’s not much to pay really.

A dream fulfilled for a huge Frida Kahlo fan! What a place! If you love Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, don't even think of leaving Mexico without seeing Casa Azul! Be ready to stand in a long queue!! Totally worth it once you enter....you enter Frida's world. The bright blue and burnt sienna walls knock you dead...totally awesome. A slow moving queue around the rooms of the casa gives enough time to absorb and appreciate one of Mexico's most iconic artists! The slow moving line also gives fans the time to feel Frida's suffering and also her zest for life
through it all. We were lucky enough to be there to admire the totally awesome "Dia De Los Muertos Offrenda"! I can't wait to go back to Mexico City just to enjoy Casa Azul all over again!
Highly recommended.
