Frida Kahlo’s Mexico City

Frida Kahlo’s Mexico City

One of Mexico’s best-known painters, traditional-dress-wearers, and monobrow-sporters, Frida Kahlo was a near-lifelong resident of Mexico City, where you can explore her enduring legacy to this day. Here are a few of the places you shouldn’t miss on your next trip to the Mexican capital, as well as how to best see them.

 

Frida Kahlo Museum

Originally built by Frida’s father, what is now the Frida Kahlo Museum—better known as the Blue House—is a much-loved, popular tourist attraction in Coyoacán, the neighborhood most associated with the artist. Within, you’ll find several works of art by Kahlo, as well as a selection of her personal effects, including some of her striking Tehuana dresses.

**How to Visit:**Prebook a ticket to avoid wasting time waiting in line.  

 

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Museum

The “other” Blue House, also known as the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Museum, is a quieter alternative to the Coyoacán museum, ideal for returning Frida fans. In the Juan O’Gorman–designed buildings in San Ángel, learn about the two artists, soak up the organized chaos of Rivera’s workshop, and peek into Kahlo’s bedroom.

**How to Visit:**Take a private tour with the personalized attention of a local guide.

Coyoacán Market

Coyoacán market was one of Kahlo’s favored haunts and remains a highlight of this popular but still rather residential neighborhood. Hunt through the stalls for local produce and freshly made juices and snacks, snap photos of the colorful stalls, and make your way to the tostada stand that Kahlo was said to frequent.

**How to Visit:**Let a local photographer-guide lead the way and show you the best spots on a private market tour.

 

Modern Art Museum (Museo de Arte Moderno)

On the fringes of Chapultepec Park, the vast urban green space that dominates central Mexico City, is the Modern Art Museum. Filled with 20th-century works by big-name Mexican artists such as José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, and, of course, Kahlo, it’s a must for Frida fans and art lovers alike.

**How to Visit:**Opt for skip-the-line admission and beat the crowds.

 

Dolores Olmedo Museum

The grounds of the Dolores Olmedo Museum in the south of Mexico City are overrun with hairless Mexican dogs (xoloitzcuintles), while the interior of this somewhat off-the-beaten-path destination is a shrine to the creative output of Frida Kahlo. Stop by and enjoy a tranquil afternoon away from the chaos of the city center.

**How to Visit:**Customize your own private excursion on a full-day, guided tour.

 

Coyoacán

Beyond the Blue House (Frida Kahlo Museum) and the markets, the Coyoacán neighborhood has plenty of sights, sounds, and excellent coffee to offer the casual visitor. Take on the area alone and explore spots such as the Coyote Fountain and Plaza Hidalgo on foot as Frida once did, while learning the history of the barrio.

**How to Visit:**Explore at your own pace with an audio-guided walking tour.
