We combined a trip to the museum with a trip to Xochimilco for a lovely and refreshing break from the hustle of Mexico City. The museum was quite easy to get to by the Tren Ligera to stop La Noire. Then it was a short walk back in the direction that the train came from, under a walking bridge and... 更多
One of the best museums I've seen. From the beautiful peacocks strolling the manicured grounds to the incredible collections amassed by this remarkable woman, I would invite you to make this a must see in Mexico City. Truly an eye opening experience.
This historic place is very interesting and says a lot about Dolores!!! The famous furless dogs so loved by Frida Khalo are there and many peacocks roam around the beautiful grounds. There are several different unconnected sections to explore with the most interesting to me the works of Frida Khalo. There's a gift shop, an ATM and plenty of bathroom... 更多
In addition to a special exhibit of both Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera paintings (Rivera collection is excellent), the museum is located at the home of Dolores Olmedo, in a park full of peacocks and peahens, flowering jacaranda trees (this being April in Mexico City) and beautiful vistas, places to sit and a calm oasis in a frenetic city. The... 更多
Small museum showing great paintings made by great artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Gorgeous gardens with some aztec dogs and peacocks as well as a little restaurant that serves authentic mexican food. The building itself is beautiful.
Museo Dolores Olmeda is hidden, little gem of a museum. Set in the beautiful and quiet grounds of Dolores home in the midst of Mexico with plenty of peacocks wandering freely about, the museum has a wonderful collection of Diego Rivera's paintings and a smaller number of paintings by Frida Kahlo. When we visited there were no crowds and we... 更多
A great collection of mainly Diego and Frida works in a breath taking setting in Xochimilco. The house was donated and the museum funded by Ms. Dolores Olmedo Patino and what a gift it is to Xochimilco, Mexico City and the world. Aside from what you can find inside the museum the building is surrounded by gorgeous gardens with indigenous... 更多
You can take the Tren Ligere to La Noria and visit this museum. It is good to combine with Xochimilco as it is fairly close. The former house and lands of Dolores Olmedo houses a fine collection of works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. It is a treasure to see and a pleasure to wander the grounds.
Upon arrival we were "greeted" by a most beautiful peacock. I think he was having some fun with us though! Every time we tried to walk by he would spread his plummage and walk right at us...took one of the gardeners to shoo him off!! Beautiful museum and well kept grounds...as dog lovers we enjoyed seeing the "Mexican hairless" and... 更多
This is a gorgeous museum . The grounds surrounding the museum are replete with pheasants showing their colorful tails and large grey dogs without hair. These are precolonial animals. The breed has been preserved and they are expensive. The exhibits are well planned and interesting and the museum store invites one to buy, buy, buy.
