A few blocks from Coyoacán's tree-shaded Plaza Hidalgo is the cobalt-blue house where Frida Kahlo lived and died, set up as if she still lived there. Her wheelchair, used late in her life as she grew more infirm, sits poignantly in one corner. Several of the paintings on display here reveal her painful existence, including one called El Marxismo Dará la Salud (Marxism Will Heal). Painted just before she died in 1954, it shows her casting away her crutches.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 5:45 pm.
