If you saw the movie Frida, you’ll recognize this museum, designed by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's friend, architect and painter Juan O’Gorman. The artistic couple called this place home from 1934 to 1940 (Frida, Diego and O'Gorman each had their own separate house). Rivera’s abode preserves his upstairs studio, while Frida's (the blue one) and O'Gorman's were cleared out for temporary exhibits.

Across the street is the San Ángel Inn. Now housing a prestigious restaurant, the former pulque hacienda is historically significant as the place where Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata agreed to divide control of the country in 1914.

It’s a 2km walk or taxi ride from metrobús La Bombilla.
