The cobalt-blue and brick-red residence where now-legendary Mexican visual artist Frida Kahlo grew up—and at times lived with husband Diego Rivera—is one of the city’s most consistently packed attractions; buying tickets in advance is strongly recommended. That said, the visit is all but de rigeur and offers fascinating glimpses into this extraordinary woman’s life and work. In addition to some of her most famous paintings, the house is also a showcase for her library, astounding wardrobe, and pre-Columbian artworks collection, and bears witness to her close association with left-wing politics. In addition, the museum portrays the artist’s struggles with depression, marital infidelities, disability, and illness. The house’s garden—home to a modest café and mostly bashful felines—makes for a great breather before more Coyoacán strolling.
