How To Visit The Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City — ALONG DUSTY ROADS

How To Buy Tickets to the Frida Kahlo Museum

Opening times are Tuesdays and Thursdays to Sundays from 10am to 6pm. One Wednesdays, it’s 11am to 6pm and the museum is closed on Mondays. Last entry is at 5pm.

The standard Frida Kahlo museum ticket costs MX$250 (Monday to Friday visits) and MX$270 for Saturdays and Sundays. Note that this is the price for foreign adults (approx. $13-15USD), as it’s cheaper for Mexicans.

For students with valid ID, it’s $50 and children under 12 are $25.

The tickets are limited to defined timeslots for arrival and entry, ands should be bought in advance via the museum’s official website. Given the popularity of Casa Azul, it’s really not a good idea to turn up without tickets.

However – and this is super important – tickets sell out very, very far in advance. If you leave it to a couple of days before you want to visit, there is a strong possibility that there will be none left to buy.

And having tried to buy tickets four days in advance, we know this from experience.

So, if you’re reading this and already know your dates for Mexico City, we recommend getting ahead of the game and booking your Frida Kahlo museum tickets sooner rather than later.

Thankfully, if everything is sold out on the official website, there are alternative options to the official site in the form of various tour operator aggregator sites, and this is the best way to get last-minute tickets. Unsurprisingly they do charge more for their Casa Azul tickets – and are probably part of the reason there are so few tickets available to begin with – but for the first time visitor to Mexico City, they provide a lifeline to those less organised or out of luck.

We’ve linked below to the specific Frida Kahlo museum ticket page on each:

We’d recommend checking out all three of the above sites as when we arranged our tickets, they all had different timeslots available and the prices varied somewhat. It was obviously very frustrating that we had to spend more to get the standard tickets, but it was the only way we were going to make it in our final two days in Mexico City.

When we visited we saw quite a large number of tourists turn up without a ticket, spend a long time dithering about on their phone before admitting defeat and leaving; it is imperative that you do not simply turn up and hope. You will almost certainly be disappointed.
