La Casa Azul or “The Blue House” is a must-see destination for art lovers who want to get a deeper glimpse into one of Mexico’s most celebrated artists, Frida Kahlo.
Kahlo lived the majority of her life in this home and also passed away here in the summer of 1954.
Today, La Casa Azul has transformed into a museum where visitors can see original artifacts unique to Kahlo, her family’s history, and her life’s work.

Frida Kahlo’s House Museum is located on Calle Londres number 247 in the Colonia Del Carmen, Coyoacan borough of Mexico City.
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, except on Wednesdays, La Casa Azul opens at 11:00 am instead of 10:00 am.
To visit the museum, you must purchase your tickets either online at www.boletosfridakahlo.org or at the ticketing kiosk in the Centenario 107 restaurant. There is no ticket kiosk on-site at the museum.
Plan out your trip and book your reservation at least two to three weeks before you come.
Because of space limits, tickets tend to sell out pretty quickly.
When you are booking your tickets online, keep this pro tip in mind: Use a debit card when you check out otherwise you’ll get an error saying your transaction didn’t go through.

When you check out, keep in mind that the pricing is in pesos.
So while you see a ticket being listed as $230, the ticket will actually cost about $12 U.S. dollars.
If you’re traveling with children, kiddos under six are free and senior admissions is 20 pesos or about $1 U.S. dollar.
Getting to La Casa Azul is pretty easy as well.
Hop onto the Metro Line 3 to the Coyoacán Viveros station. Once there, you will need to take a taxi or city bus to the museum.
You can also walk the 15 to 20-minute distance there if you prefer.
La Casa Azul is steeped in such rich history, it's definitely worth a visit if you are nearby. Before you visit, be sure to plan out your trip by stopping by the museum's Facebook and Instagram page.
