Frida Kahlo was genius and a great woman. This Frida Kahlo Museum is a great memento of her life and art. She was born is this house and later lived here with her husband, Diego Rivera. The movie about her life, Frida was mostly filmed in this house.

The Museum is great, I loved it. Everything is left the way it was when the artist couple lived here. Their pre-Columbian art collection is is also presented. There is a mock-up Aztec temple in the yard, it was Frida's and it displays most of the statues and other items they had. The whole place is a must see in Mexico City!

Address:
Londres 247, Del Carmen, Coyacán, Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico

Price:
About $4.5 (55 Pesos)

In the kitchen you will see the inscription Frida and Diego on the wall. I'm not sure which one of them painted it, but I think it was Diego, as he was the muralist. Anyway, it's beautiful.Reply

My favorite part was the upstairs studio. There is a half made painting and used brushes and dyes. It's like she's still living and working there.Reply
