Although intending to make this visit many years ago on my first visit to the Mexico City ,I finally managed this year, and believe me I was not disappointed. The setting in Coyoacan, a very attractive area of the city, does prepare you for what I feel is a very small sized, and yet exceptional museum.
You can avoid the crowds, by making arrangements to buy your ticket early. But I did not, and truly believed the long queue was all part of the fun. I was also particularly impressed by the fact that they offered me the senior rate even though I was a foreign visitor.
If you ever make it to Mexico city, this is a must see, the art studio setting also dragged me back to the days when I was art Art College in the UK. I felt a great need to drag out the brushes and start creating masterpieces all again. Like so much of this city, the local culture encourages a urgent need to express yourself.
