We went to Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as Casa Azul, right in the heart of Coyoacán. This museum holds immense significance as it was the birthplace and home of the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. It’s a space where art, personal history, and Mexican culture intertwine beautifully.
One notable challenge during our visit was the overwhelming number of people. The popularity of the museum has soared, making it difficult to navigate through the rooms and fully appreciate the artifacts and artworks. This congestion somewhat dampened the overall experience.
Amidst the bustling interior, the courtyard stands as a serene oasis. Its beauty and tranquility offer a moment of respite, allowing visitors to reflect on Frida’s legacy and the museum’s cultural significance.
The museum is a glimpse into the life Frida shared with her husband, Diego Rivera. The kitchen, charmingly decorated with Frida and Diego’s names, offers a quaint and personal insight into their domestic life.
Entry to the museum costs 250 pesos per person, a fair price for immersing oneself in such a historically rich environment. However, it’s important to note that photography of the museum’s interior is strictly prohibited unless you possess a special permit, which is available for purchase.
