Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Museo Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo, Av. Altavista Diego Rivera, Colonia San Angel Inn, Mexico City 01090 Mexico

The first stop on the tour will be the visit to the "Blue House", the house that saw Frida Kahlo born and die; In this place, you can experience part of the feelings that inspired his works, both joy and sadness, courage and suffering. You will find there a total set of belongings of this great artist, objects and walls that were part of her life and in which Frida created and left her feelings and emotions, this visit will help us to better understand everything that she represents in her works and paintings throughout his life.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, Calle Museo 150, Mexico City 04620 Mexico

the trip will continue through the Anahuacalli Museum. An emblematic site in which Diego and Frida wanted to build a home as a couple; an idea that could not be carried out, but that, under the great imagination of Diego Rivera, was transformed from a volcanic rock terrain, into a museum that combines the modern construction ideas and the pre-Hispanic roots of Mexico. There you will see some of Diego Rivera's sketches for murals as well as part of his collection of pre-Hispanic works that houses about 2,000 figures and idols from different cultures and periods of the ancient history of Mexico, where in the first instance, crossing the main hall, one will meet the four most important deities of the Mexican pre-Hispanic world and that represent the four elements: the goddess of corn, Chicomecóatl, for the land; Ehécatl, god of the wind, for the air; Huehuetéotl, god of fire, for this element, and Tláloc, god of rain, for water. Once inside, visitors will find themselves on a mystical journey from the underworld to the sun.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Museo Dolores Olmedo Patino, Calle Avenida Mexico # 5843 La Noria, Xochimilco, Mexico City 16030 Mexico

Finally, we will end up in a museum that is of special mention because it was not a place where Frida or Diego lived, but is a place where most of their legacy remains present: Dolores Olmedo Museum, home of a wonderful compilation of Diego Rivera's works and the largest collection in the world of Frida Khalo's paintings (such as "Henry Ford Hospital", "The Broken Column" and "Autoretrato con Changuito", one of Frida Kahlo’s most iconic paintings). The museum also exhibits more than 900 archaeological pieces of diverse cultures and historical periods of Mexico, as well as personal and decorative objects of Dolores Olmedo when she lived in that house.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Dear customer, We thank you for your review. Effectively, Frida's world is not for everybody. She was indeed a very complicated artist and our purpose is to show the aritistic part of those two great Mexican Artist. We do not take part in a contorversy if she was feminist or if she had a Stockhold Syndrome. Hope you learn something out of this tour and get to know a bit more about the Mexican Culture, this is the purpose of this tour. By the way, Dolores Olmedo Museum was in your tour as well and you metioned as one of the best museums to see :-)
