This museum has the largest collection of Kahlo paintings that exist under one roof. If that's the main reason you're going, check if Kahlo's works are in, because they are very frequently traveling.

We really enjoyed the exhibits but were disappointed that fridas exhibits were mostly away in a travelling exhibition. Not to worry the grounds are beautiful and made up for the deficiency. Plan to return when fridas exhibition is back at the museum.

Truly a lovely museum! Their collection of Diego Rivera work is wonderful. The kids loved seeing the hairless dogs and getting up close and personal with the peacocks. Since we were there during Dia de Muertos weekend, it seemed that every single local in town...More

Our guide said this place is not usually too busy but probably was unusually busy the day we went because schools were cancelled due to the water shortage and it was day of the dead holiday. Great artwork and cafe and gift shop.

If you love Frida and Diego this is a place to visit! It is far from downtown but close to Xochimilco. I love the fact that you can see lots of live peacocks and hairless dogs (xolos)

On the way to Xochimilco it would be good to visit. Look out for the peacocks and xolomeo (hairless) dogs. Intimate art works from Frida and Diego.

it changes, I think they are in Budapest right now. There is a lot of Diego and Frida art around the home. So still go to that. It is well worth it.
