    Excellent museum highlighting the life & art of the fascinating Frida Kahlo. The museum is in a very hip & interesting neighborhood. Also don't miss L. Trosky 's museum closeby.

    Great museum, make sure to take the video guide. If you want to take pictures inside the museum you need to pay 60 pesos (stupid, in my opinion but worth it).

    Awesome museum. The best in CDMX. To avoid long lines ask for the Bus Combo with Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo museums. 130 pesos

    A really good museum: the grounds are gorgeous, intimate bits of her life are scattered throughout, and the art is stunning. Make sure to hit Tostadas Coyoacán and Café Avellaneda afterwards!

    Collection of Frida and Diego artwork, as well as lovely peaks into what their decor looked like while living here. Line can get long so maybe look into booking online if you’re short on time

    Buy ticket online, you'll still have to stand in line for at least 30mins. It's worth it to buy the photography pass so you can take pictures. Takes about 1-2hours to go through. Better than expected!

    This was an informative and fascinating tour. The estate is beautiful and I learned so much! Buy combined tickets to visits the Diego Museum as well. Bus fair is included and you save time on the line

    Outstanding! Getting there with Uber is very easy. Make sure to buy your ticket in advance online so that you can skip the massive line out front.

    Loved the temporary exhibition of her dresses and fashion. But tickets before coming. Come early or stay after to walk around cute Coyoacan. Line up at the museum 10min before. Done in 45-60min.

    Lines start forming before 10:30am. We got tickets in advance on the internet but it made no difference. Even though we were first group (11am) people buying tickets the day of were let in before us.

    Expensive but AMAZING! It is a must for sure. Be aware, you must pay 30 extra pesos to be allowed to take pictures inside (rip-off). But still, go and be delighted

    Pro tip: Buy tickets in advance online so you don't have to wait in line. If there's time, the Leon Trotsky museum is nearby too.

    The house itself is beautiful, so it is worth taking a book and hanging out in the garden for a bit if it is not very crowded. My favorite part of the exhibition is Frida's dress collection.

    I’ve made the mistake of not buying tickets in advance online. Expect to waste a couple of hours in line. Go get lost around the beautiful little colorful streets of Coyoacan instead :)

    You absolutely must buy your tickets online in advance. Each ticket has a time slot (30 minute increments) and you should show up to get in line 10 minutes before your assigned time.

    Purchasing tickets in advance on their website will not guarantee entrance for the time you purchased your ticket. You should still arrive early (30-60min) before your scheduled time to wait in line.

    Everyone knows you should visit the Frida Kahlo museum, which happens to be her big, beautiful blue house. After touring Frida's house, head to the Coyoacan market nearby for some tostadas.

    Tickets were impossible, but we were in the area so we walked by to take in the beautiful blue building. Looks like that's all anyone is interested in anyway! Maybe save yourself the trouble!

    A must!!!!! Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo is one of the best love stories ever. Go first to ANAHUACALLI that ticket also includes this museum, so you don't pay twice.

    A bit crowded, but nice place to stop in Coyoacán to learn more about Frida & Diego. We had issues using us credit card to book in advance - hotel had to help.

    Absolutely a must! There is few places in df of that quality! If u from Russia or know its history, go to Trotsky museum few blocks down! Also a must do!

    It's really interesting to visit the place! You have the chance to see were Frida Kahlo and her husband (Diego) lived, their work, and a nice garden.

    Lots of interesting exhibits, if you want pictures inside of the museum itself you’ll need a special permit which you can purchase when you buy your tickets.

    Less about Frida's work and more about her house, clothing, life style and marriage. Line is long to get in so I suggest buying tickets ahead online.

    A million people. Buy a ticket in advance. Not a whole lot to look at, you can probably go through in less than an hour

    Buy your tickets in advance - it gets packed and you’ll therefore spend a long time in line if you do not already have a ticket

    Frida Kahlo's house and museum where she lived with Diego. Her art pieces and wardrobe are displayed. Must visit.

    Book tickets in advance to skip lines - it's about a 30min Uber from the city centre. Make time to go to the nearby Mercado Coyoacan for food before/after.

    The audio guide is worth it. Really nice stories of Frida's life as you move from room to room and explore her past.

    Clearly one of the must visit museums in Mexico, just try to make it early to avoid long lines... But it's totally worth it

    The actual Frida exhibit is small and feels quite lacking. The garden area is lovely however. Be warned: it’s an extra MXN$30 to take photos inside.

    This place has personal items of the artist. Ask for a guided tour, it's highly recommended. You can watch some screenings about Frida every hour.

    Interesting, but very overcrowded place. Museum staff is goading visitors all the time, so you are not able to inspect all exhibits as long as you want. Extra payment for photo permit is a bad joke...

    Compren boleto en línea! Buy ticket online! Ticket lines are eternal and if you are in a short visit, you may missed the chance to go in.

    Enjoyed the audio tour ($80), and felt the photography permit ($60) was worth it. Took my time and spent about 90 minutes here.

    Also known as "The Blue House" Josh S recommendation. Per Laura H, its kinda a trek and you should make reservations ahead of time

    Buy tickets online or arrive before opening. This is not an accessible museum a lot of stairs.

    This blue house is where Frida Kahlo lived, worked and inspired. Her personal diary, sketches and final painting are here, along with works of art by her husband, Diego Rivera.

    You can really see her life here. Watch the Nextflix movie to get a good background on Frida. Have to order tix in advance.

    Go in the afternoon. Even with advance tickets, line is long (though quick) and rooms get crowded.
