Frida Kahlo Museum

The Frida Kahlo Museum (Spanish: Museo Frida Kahlo), also known as the Blue House (Spanish: La Casa Azul) is Frida Kahlo’s childhood home which was turned into an art museum dedicated to the life and work of the famous painter and her equally known husband Diego Rivera. The museum contains a collection of artwork by both artists and their personal belongings, memorabilia, clothes, photos and more. Visitors can glimpse into artists’ life by visiting their kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, and art studio filled with original furniture and decorations.
For children, the museum features special interest points (in a shape of monkey), which provide interesting information (in Spanish only) about Frida’s life and offer simple challenges or puzzles to solve.
Every Saturday, from 13.30 – 15.30, the museum holds educational workshops for children (in Spanish).

To beat the lines, you can buy tickets to the museum online.

    We loved it!

    Reviewed 19 January 2018

    We went to Casa Azul as a multi generation group: kids, parents and grandparents and we all really enjoyed it. The museum is full of colors, art, and personal items, which once belonged to Frida and Diego Rivera. And if your child or you knows Spanish, you can take advantage of  the child-friendly guides (shaped like monkeys), which gives children interesting information about Frida's painting and keep them involved by giving them a task to find in each room different items.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
