Frida Kahlo Museum:
Frida Kahlo's family home, the Casa Azul, or "Blue House" is where she grew up, and where she returned in her final years. Built in 1907 by Frida's father, Guillermo Kahlo, the house was home to the Kahlo family and also served to house Leon Trotsky when he first arrived in Mexico in 1937.
The Casa Azul was converted into a museum in 1958, four years after Frida's death. It is decorated with Mexican folk art and contains Frida's and her husband Diego's personal belongings from the time they lived there. However, you won't find much of their work exhibited here. To see some of Frida Kahlo's paintings, you should visit the Dolores Olmedo Patiño Museum in Xochimilco, or the Modern Art Museum in Chapultepec Park.

The museum is located on Calle Londres number 247 at the corner of Allende in the Colonia Del Carmen Coyoacan area of Mexico City. Opening hours are from 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
