Take an online virtual tour of the legendary Frida Kahlo’s home

Frida Kahlo. What’s not to love? A political activist, feminist icon, and creative genius; we all have a lot to gain from being a bit more Frida. So why not take the chance to get to know her a bit more intimately and fan-girl hard by taking a 360 virtual-tour of her former home.

The online museum tour allows you to explore the legendary surrealist artist’s humble abode, otherwise known as Casa Azul, in your own time and from the comfort of your own home.

Transport yourself to Mexico City and take an online stroll around the legendary Frida Kahlo’s villa, from the comfort of your own home.

Frida Kahlo is a household name for a number of reasons. Her creative influence spans genres, her popularity transcends generations, and to this day, the 20th-century Mexican painter has the ability to inspire the masses through her artwork and her life.

In existential terms, she conjures up her “own reality” and paints a raw picture of her life that is unapologetically true to herself and the barriers she faced. Kahlo once said, “The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”

The villa tour, set up by The Frida Kahlo museum, offers a truly authentic snapshot into the Mexican artist’s life. The house is still home to original furniture, trinkets and personal possessions that belonged to Frida and her husband Diego Rivera.
