Perfectly preserved house! Walking in, any empath can feel her tortured creative soul. You could spend hours reading her diary entries, checking out her wardrobe, her crutches, examining paint brushes, and standing within 3 feet of her death bed. Any art student/fan/tourist will learn so much, so be sure to give yourself enough time to check out the whole house. *BUY TICKETS ONLINE IN ADVANCE* You will still have to wait in line, but nothing is organized in Mexico, so you'll be one step ahead of the game.

I was skeptical this would be more of a tourist trap from what I read in advance, but I enjoyed my visit. The inner courtyard is lovely. Don't miss the temporary exhibit which displayed Frida's clothing and some works from famous designers who were inspired from her look. The house is cool too, with some of her work and Diego Rivera's work on display too. However, it was uncomfortably crowded in the house. You have to queue up and view the house while in still in the line which sucked.

TIP: Buy your tickets in advance. It's unlikely you'll get in showing up to stand by, or you'll wait for hours.
TIP #2: They only sell tickets until 5 pm, and they say they close at 5:30 pm, but once you're inside, you're good! They don't kick you out. I stayed until nearly 6 pm and there were still a lot of people there when I left. It was so much nicer after 5 pm and I was able to go back in the house again when it was empty to view the rooms and the artworks without the crowds. So don't worry about getting the last ticket time of the day; you'll still have time to see everything. Also, for students, tickets are only 40 pesos, so book one of those if you're eligible. If you buy in advance, you don't need to print your ticket. You scan the emailed ticket on your phone. You don't have to show your ID either.

Once you purchase your ticket, there is a bag/coat check so you could leave your bags here. Hand your ticket to the nice lady and enter towards the left. This is the first room to view and it's one direction through the museum. I'm sure you could finish and come through again if you missed something or want to see something again. The property is huge and the house is pretty big too. The guest house in the back has all of the wardrobe that Frida wore including the hospital gowns. There is a gift shop you could purchase souvenirs or the cafe to get a snack or drink. Relax in the courtyard and read all of the signs. I like how it's all the phrases both Frida and Diego had once said. Inspirational is how I read each sign with the quotes. Wish my friends shared some of the pictures taken inside the museum but it was great to have been able to see this museum.

This museum was the home of Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera, both are renowned artists. It is also known as the Blue House. This museum mainly features Frida, her life & works of art. It is very fascinating!

Home of Frida Kahlo, this museum is a hot tourist spot! Go early (we went at 8:30am) for standby tickets. It opens at 10am. We went on a Sunday when it costs 220 pesos.

It's a beautiful home. Beyond the obvious exquisite artwork, the museum provides great insight into her and Diego Rivera's life together. While in the neighborhood, check out the Cayocan market and square.

The house were Frida lived is a must see in Mexico City. However if you want to see her work, there is not a lot here.

A must, try to book tickets in advance because the lines are long. The souvenir shop has nothing of much interest.

Real art life, if you love frida khaki and diego rivera art you must come to visit the blue house in Coyoacán. You will see all the furniture and items that they had and in the same order as they used to use them. You will find good information in English and Spanish. You can buy things in the inside store and also you can enjoy a good snack in the blue house.

This is a home turned museum. Very intimate look at the every day life of Frida and Diego. Simple dwelling and yet rich in art, culture, and meaningful work.

Entrance is $120MXN on weekdays. $70MXN for Mexican citizens. $70MXN for the video guide which I recommend. An extra $60MXN if you want to take pictures inside the house. Pictures in the garden are free of charge.

Expect to learn about the life and history of this Mexican icon. Some of her artwork is exhibited throughout the house. There's also a video biography playing in the garden which is very interesting.

A pretty museum that tells the life of Frida Kahlo and her partner, Diego Rivera, through her art.
When we were there, there was also a temporary exhibit of Frida's dresses.

Casa Azul was at the top of my list of places to visit in Mexico City. It gave a glimpse into the life of Frida Kahlo. I found the special exhibit of her clothing very interesting!

Visit early on a weekday to avoid a long line or buy your tickets in advance online!

Pretty little blue hose where Frida lived back in 1930, full loaded of history and a very easy way to understand her origins and above all, a real look into Mexican style.

Museo Frida Kahlo is located in La Casa Azul, the place where Kahlo was born, lived and died. For admirers of her work or even just those who recognize the mark she made on history, it's fantastic to see the space she created for herself and learn more about her struggle.

New YORK!

I think if you're a Frida Kahlo obsessive, this place has a lot more resonance. For me, I like her and all, but the museum wasn't that gripping. Interesting, and beautifully arranged, but we were in and out of here in 45 minutes or less. By contrast, we found the Trotsky house nearby much more interesting just because we didn't already know so much about the place or him.

I know this is total and complete sacrilege on like 20 different levels to say this, but I don't really like Frida Kahlo. (Dodging tomatoes now...) But I do love Diego Rivera, and history, and Mexico City. So I'm happy that this museum has way more than enough Frida to make fans happy, but enough Diego Rivera artwork (no big murals, but you can visit those elsewhere in the DF), cool pre-Columbian artifacts, and fascinating history to make this museum worthwhile for pretty much anyone.

This gal was truly avant garde for her time and place. Her work is very evocative of feminine spirit and she mixes emotions from many different planes of thought. Much of her work is a bit overbearing but this collection has many smaller things that reveal her subtle and ironic senses of humor and sensuality. This building looks small but has a lot inside and I suggest trying to find a quiet spot and wait to sense some of the tricky, ineffible currents there.

The museum is located in a beautiful colonial home. Even if you don't care much for the artist, it is well worth the visit to get to see what these old houses looked like and how people lived.
