The Frida Kahlo museum is where she was born, also known as the Blue House. She was born in 1907. After she died in 1958 the Mexican like to liking her and she became Mexico icon and her house became a museum.
The museum exhibits her and husband Diego Rivera personal belongings, early paintings, dairies, outfits, where she slept, her wheelchair where she paint, photographs and lots of their other items.
For us it was interesting visit. I even bought a book about her. Interesting reading.
Cost: $80 pp
If you love Frida and Diego, you'll treasure your visit to the "Blue House" in Coyoacán. Although it had at times felt somewhat neglected, it has now been renovated, and still contains the essence of that dynamic duo.
Located in her hometown, Coyoacán, Frida Kahlo's house-turned-museum is well worth a visit to explore the artist's personal life with her husband Diego Rivera. The house is very colourful with a beautiful garden and contains some of Frida's artwork. Coyoacán makes a nice excursion about 20 minutes from downtown Mexico City and has historic buildings and a nice market to visit too.
bad picture quality sorry
I love Frida Kahlo s pictures and her interesting life and so was the museum and the visit of the other museum in San Angel a must for me while I was in Mexico City.
The colorful house and inside of the museum and the paintings are just unique and worth to see for everyone.
You have to buy postcards or go to other exibitions to get pictures of the paintings of Frida.
The house is basically as Frida Hahlo left it, and as you wander through you get the overwhelming feeling for the life she and Diego Rivera lived. The couple's mementos are in every room, from the kitchen to the studi9o upstairs, whre a wheelchair sits next to the easel with a partially completed painting surrounded by paint brushes, palettes, books, photographs and other paraphenalia.
I walked to the Museo de Frida Kahlo. The walk through the house is eerie to say the least. Frida lived a very dramatic life, one that shows through on her paintings. There are so many emotions on the house it will move even those that don't like art. On another subject, I recently saw the movie of Frida, staring Salma Hayek. I highly recommend you see this movie before you visit the house (or at least read about her life). I had some background knowledge on Frida, but after watching the movie I can now reflect and understand many things I saw in her house (yes, the film was partially filmed in the museum-casa).
This museum is located in the beautiful Coyoacan. It is worth seeing for interior decoration at least as much as for the art inside.
