One of the best-known museums in Mexico City exhibits the life and work of its most famous artist: Frida Kahlo. The museum, located in the Coyoacan suburb, is also known as La Casa Azul (The Blue House), and was Kahlo's former residence. It hosts some impressive examples of her works, but travelers say that the best part of visiting the house is seeing where the painter lived and painted.

Recent visitors to the property said it's a must-see for fans of the artist and shows her life and work in a very personal light. Travelers also recommended purchasing admission tickets online in advance to avoid lines (which are sometimes an hour wait or more).

You can visit La Casa Azul for 120 pesos (about $6.50) on the weekdays and 140 pesos (around $7.50) on the weekends. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday (closed Mondays) from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. You'll find the museum in the Coyoacán neighborhood in the southern part of the city. To reach the museum, you can take the metro line 3 (olive green line) to the Coyoacán station. The museum is located about a mile southeast of the station. For more information about the collection and home, visit the museum's website
