Visit Frida Kahlo's Colorful Santuary

The Frida Kahlo Museum, or "Casa Azul," is a vibrant and beautiful sanctuary in Mexico City that was famous artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s private residence. The bright blue buildings are so pigmented that it brings a liveliness and happiness to the space. You can tour the grounds to view their art, and also see their studio and living spaces.


Tip: Book in advance since they do sell out.
You can book direct, or as part of a tour. There is a Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul, Xochimilco & Coyoacan: Full-Day Tour that will take you to the highlights of this area in Mexico City.

The kitchen below is so nostalgic of Mexican culture (My dad is from Mexico). The colorful tile, the woven chairs, and the organic-shaped pottery and kitchen utensils are vibrant and lively.

The most interesting room is Frida’s art studio, which has been left as it was the day she left this earth in 1954. Colorful paints and tinctures are lying around waiting for the next stroke of paint to hit the canvas, all carefully lined up in a rainbow of colors.

While Frida and Diego's former home is one the the most crowded tourist destinations in Mexico City, it was still my favorite. There was something so special and inspiring about being in the space of such an iconic and influential artists.
