Quite small museum, but worth a visit. May not be great for those who tend to be a bit claustrophobic. Doesn't take long to go through, plan on maybe 2 hours. Many things in... read more

We ended up here by accident, but it was totally worth it to see these studios of Diego and Frida. The cactus fence is, of course, iconic of their studio/home. The main room in Diego's studio is one of the most vibrant and colorful that we saw during our entire time in Mexico. It's a nice walk from here to... More

If you are an art lover, this place has history, where Diego and Frida worked on different stages of their lives. Interesting to see, the architectural structure is also interesting. They have some of their work displayed casually.

The architecture of the house is outstanding and is a must in Mexico City but don't expect to see a lot of pains from Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Plan to go there around noon so after or before you visit this place you can go to San Angel Inn (it is worth to make a reservation for SAI)

Three houses are in the property: Diego Rivera's, Frida Kahlo's and Juan O'Gorman's. Get to read letters from Frida to Diego and vice versa. Learn about their tumultuous relation by walking around their houses/ateliers. Look at old pictures... If you visit San Angel make sure to stop by this small museum. Take a walk around the neighborhood and go visit... More

This place holds Diego's presence. "We are two different people but our love makes us into one, that's why we have the bridge" Frida Kahlo.

Are you fascinated with Frida and Diego? You have to see how they solved their very complex relationship (love-hate-jelousy) building twin houses connected by a bridge. The architect O´Gorman was a genius!

I would recommend phoning before to check what is open. The website is not up to date and when we visited most of the rooms/buildings were closed. I contacted them about this via the 3 emails on the website but have not received a reply.

I was disappointed as there wasn't much art by Diego or Frida, rather an exhibit on Jose Garcia Narezo, and even that didn't have too many pieces, as the houses are rather small. That said, it was not crowded and free for students, both of which were huge pluses. In addition, Diego's studio with his personal effects was great to... More

I love Frida Kahlo, so I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit her home when I was in Mexico City just last week. It's a beautiful space, and you can see how and where she lived and worked. There's a lot to see, so go with time. The only drawback for me was that a lot of her iconic pieces... More

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.
