Frida Kahlo Museum

Casa Azul Museo Frida Kahlo

This house-cum-museum witnessed the life and work of this great artist, an icon of Mexican culture.

In 1958, Frida Kahlo’s universe began to be revealed to the world. The house where she was born, grew up, spent 25 years alongside Diego Rivera, and then died, was turned into a museum exhibiting the painter’s most intimate corners—there are her daytime and nighttime bedrooms, her studio, dining room, kitchen, Diego’s room, a room of ex-votos, and other rooms displaying artwork created by Frida and Diego and photos with their family and friends. Art, color, culture, and nature come together throughout the house. The spacious gardens filled with yucca and pre-Hispanic pieces, documents confirming the painters’ love, and a three-story pyramid where Frida was once photographed beside her Autorretrato con Diego en mi pensamiento (Self-Portrait with Diego in My Thoughts) are all part of the charm. Don’t skip Las apariencias engañan: los vestidos de Frida Kahlo (Appearances Are Deceiving: The Dresses of Frida Kahlo) collection with her famous traditional tehuana dresses which so captivated the lens of Toni Frissell, the writings of Bretón, and inspired prominent international designers. The exhibit includes jewelry, accessories, shoes, orthopedic devices, and medicines.
