How to get to the Frida Kahlo Museum
By public transportation
The closest metro station to the museum is Metro Coyoacán. From there you could walk, the only thing you have to do is to cross Av. Río Churubusco and continue straight on Av. Mexico, which is the continuity of Av. Coyoacán. You’ll pass through Brussels, Madrid, Vienna, Berlin and into London.
You walk through London until you come across the famous blue house and that’s it. The walking tour takes approximately 20 minutes.
If you want to use the fishermen’s boats or trucks, you must take one that passes through Av. Mexico. You can take those that say Calzada Tlalpan but I suggest you ask the driver before getting on.
Where is the Frida Kahlo blue house museum? Londres 247, Colonia Del Carmen, Delegación Coyoacán, C.P. 04100, Mexico City, Mexico.
What’s in the Frida Kahlo Museum
The house was quickly converted into a museum after Frida’s death and the efforts they have made to preserve it are quite important so you can appreciate much of the relationship Frida had with her house and her works.
In the rooms of the house you can see several of Frida Kahlo’s and Diego Rivera’s works.
One of the most interesting attractions of the blue house is the day bed and the night bed that Frida used to continue painting after a terrible accident in which she broke her spine.
In fact, several of his works are inspired by the pain and suffering he experienced during the reconstructive process he went through.
During the tour you can appreciate the use that Frida Kahlo gave to each space of the house and the importance it had for her.
Who was Frida Kahlo Read this before visiting the blue house!
The full name of this Mexican character is actually Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo Calderon . She was a painter who had the misfortune of suffering from poliomyelitis and was the victim of a devastating accident for which she had to undergo 32 surgeries. The accident occurred when the bus in which she was riding was hit by a streetcar. Imagine the severity of the accident that left Frida with a spine fractured in three places, 2 broken ribs and a broken collarbone, three fractures in the pelvic bone, a leg that was left in 11 places, a dislocated foot and as if that were not enough, a handrail went through her left hip and out through her vagina.
It is so impressive to read how serious the accident is that the first thing that comes to mind is that it is the closest thing to the creation of Frankenstein’s monster. The fact that he was saved was undoubtedly a miracle.
It was after this accident that her career as a painter began and, like all good artists, it was only after she died that her works became popular and famous.
