The Frida Kahlo Museum is hosted in the house where the legendary Mexican artist was born, lived with her husband Diego Rivera, and died. Works by Kahlo and Rivera are displayed along pieces by friends and international artists and their pre-Colombian and folk art collection. Personal mementos and relics – such as Kahlo’s hand painted corset – complete the display which will win over even the visitors most skeptical about the cult of personality that surrounds the Mexican artist. Among the highlights, the section of the house where Leon Trotsky lived at the time of his collaboration with Andre Breton and where he escaped an assassination attempt by Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siqueros. Well worth a visit is also the phantasmagoric pre-Colombian museum Anahuacalli conceived by Rivera and the two modernist studios where Kahlo and Rivera worked, separated by a sky-bridge.
