What to Do When Frida Kahlo Museum Tickets are Sold Out

If you’re unable to find tickets available to Frida Kahlo’s house through their website, here are three alternative options.

1. Buy Frida Kahlo Tickets Online Using a Different Platform

If Frida Kahlo Museum tickets are sold out, you can buy tickets here a few days in advance.

Yes, the price is higher to use their service. But if you’re buying Frida Kahlo Museum tickets last minute, it’s the next best option.

Keep in mind, you’ll still need some flexibility in your schedule. When you buy tickets through this method, you’ll have first access to the museum at 10:30 am (a bonus!) But since the Frida Kahlo Museum hours are 11 am – 6 pm on Wednesdays, that day is unavailable entirely.

Some of these tours also include round trip transportation to the museum. I’ve detailed the best options below.
