This museum contained very little art by either of its former occupants, but it was interesting to see the house where they lived and worked.
This is the house where Frida grew up, as well as where she and Diego Rivera lived later in life. It was donated by Diego as a museum after Frida's death and now contains a small number of their paintings as well as much of the prehispanic art collected by the couple.

Museo Dolores Olmedo
This museum boasts the largest collection of Frida Kahlo paintings, about a third of her work. Unfortunately, the entire Frida exhibit was on display in Chile until the end of the month! However, we enjoyed the huge collection of Diego Rivera art, as well as several modern art exhibits and the manicured lawns with peacocks and hairless dogs.
Laura tries in vain to get in to the Frida room.
