Museo Frida Kahlo – D.F.

Frida Kahlo may have been the wife of a famous Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, but she was a prominent artist in her own right and was painting long before she met Rivera. She was born and died in the Casa Azul (Blue House) where she lived all her life. In 1968, Rivera turned the house into a museum in her honor. The museum specializes in their art as well as that of other folk artists, pre-Spanish artifacts and other memorabilia associated with the couple. It is the most visited museum in Coyacan, where it is located, and one of the most visited tourist attraction in Mexico City.
