Museo Anahuacalli

A museum conceived by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo to host over 50,000 pre-Columbian pieces of art.

Since the thirties, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo harbored the idea of passing on to the people of Mexico two museums. The first, Anahuacalli, protects the more than 50,000 pre-Columbian pieces that the teacher collected throughout his life. The second – called La Casa Azul – where Frida Kahlo lived, houses works and objects of her universe and retains much of the atmosphere in which she lived.
Museo Anahuacalli is directed by Hilda Trujillo Soto.
