How To Get Frida Kahlo Museum Tickets? Even When Sold Out!

Last Updated on March 29, 2024 by Soumya

Getting tickets to Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City is a really really important task. That’s because if you don’t buy Frida Kahlo tickets well ahead of time, you won’t get them on the day of your visit!

Yes, that’s true. You need to purchase your Frida Kahlo House tickets at least 4-5 days before visiting.

On my recent trip to Mexico City, all Casa Azul tickets were sold out on two instances. I, finally, managed to get in on Day 3 by purchasing tickets from a third-party provider. And Thank God for that!

Visiting Frida Kahlo House was important to me and I could not have skipped it for anything in the world. Kahlo has always inspired me with her art and life. So, visiting Frida Kahlo House (or Casa Azul as it is also called) was an important item on my Mexico bucket list.

So, here I am to answer all your questions about getting tickets to Frida Kahlo Museum – where to buy them, how much do they cost, how often do these tickets sell out, do you need to book ahead, and so much more.

How to buy Frida Kahlo Museum Tickets?

You can buy Frida Kahlo Museum tickets online on their official website here. The official website is where you’ll get the cheapest tickets. So, I always recommend that you check for tickets on the official museum website first.

If Frida Kahlo Museo tickets are sold out on your preferred date/time (which is usually the case) on the museum website, don’t worry.

You can still purchase Frida Kahlo tickets from three third-party providers: Tiqets, Get Your Guide, and Viator.

These third-party tickets are usually priced higher than normal tickets because they are sold by Mexican tour companies that purchase bulk tickets in advance.

Amigo Tours, a very popular and highly rated tour company in Mexico, offers Frida Kahlo tickets on Tiqets and Get Your Guide. Another vendor, Mexictours, handles the tickets on Viator.

Tiqets is always my preferred platform for Frida Kahlo tickets if they are sold out on the official website.

Which 3rd-party platforms sell Frida Kahlo tickets?

Here are the details of the 3 different online marketplaces where you can find Frida Kahlo tickets. Each has its own quirks, so be sure to read the details before you buy your tickets.

  • Tiqets: Usually the cheapest among the three. ▶️ Check Prices and Availability.
    This is also the most reliable option, in my opinion. Their tickets are rarely canceled, and the availability dashboard is always updated.
    However, they don’t sell tickets for Wednesdays because they only sell tickets for the 10:30 am slot, whereas Frida Kahlo Museum opens from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm on Wednesdays.

  • Get Your Guide: The middle option – costlier than Tiqets, cheaper than Viator. ▶️ Check Prices and Availability.
    They are pretty similar to Tiqets since they are both handled by the same vendor. In rare cases, tickets may be available on Get Your Guide if they are not available on Tiqets.

  • Viator: Usually the most expensive among the three and also the least reliable, recently. ▶️ Check Prices and Availability.
    Recently, there have been many cancellations and reschedulings on Viator (from personal experience and the experiences of my readers) because their availability is not updated in real-time. So, if you see a Frida Kahlo museum ticket available on Viator in the next 2-3 weeks, I would be cautious while booking. Even if you book, please connect with the vendor and confirm the booking immediately after.
    Viator allows you to select from multiple visiting slots, which is one great thing about it. Therefore, they are available on Wednesdays, too.

Remember that Frida Kahlo Museum tickets are generally non-refundable.

The museum no longer sells tickets at the box office. So, you’ll need to buy your Casa Azul tickets online before visiting. You cannot just show up.

Good to know before you buy your Casa Azul Ticket

  • When you purchase a Frida Kahlo Museum ticket, you get a complimentary ticket for the Diego Rivera Anahuacalli Museum (a house full of Diego Rivera’s pre-Hispanic collection), also in Coyoacan.
  • You cannot buy tickets in person. Frida Kahlo Museum does not do box office sales anymore. So, you’ll have to purchase your Kahlo House ticket online on MUSEUM WEBSITE | TIQETS | GET YOUR GUIDE | VIATOR
  • Tickets to Casa Azul sell out pretty fast, especially the morning slots. Be sure to purchase your tickets at least 4-5 days in advance. To be on the safer side, I would suggest booking it a week in advance.
  • The museum opens up tickets a couple of months at a time. Keep checking here to see if your preferred date has opened up.
  • Tickets are usually sold in 15-min slots starting 10:00am – 5:00pm. However, this does not mean that you have to finish your tour in 15 mins and get out. Feel free to explore at your own pace.
  • Photography inside the museum rooms is not included in the ticket. You can click pictures in the garden and the courtyards with your admission ticket. However, if you wish to click pictures inside the display rooms, remember to buy a photo permit for 30 pesos at the entrance.

  1. Thanks for your article, however I would recommend that you remove viator from your list of recommended vendors. I followed the link to book through viator for Frida Kahlo museum. When I arrived the attendant explained that the ticket Viator had issued was not a ticket and directed me to another area of the site, knowing what was to come. Shortly before the entrance time the vendor (Mexictours) had emailed to say they had no tickets after all, but could book me for another day. I asked the attendant how frequently this happened with viator and she said several times a day. Please don’t book through viator, they do not vet their vendors and turns out this was a scam.

    1. Hi there, thanks for pointing this out and I am sorry you had to go through this. I have edited my post to reflect the issues with Viator and have reached out to them too regarding the issue. This tip is going to be really helpful for my readers, going forward. Viator has always been one of my preferred online platforms for booking tours in Mexico City. So, I am hoping they will address this issue soon.
