PLAYA DEL CARMEN — There’s a major new museum in the Mexican Caribbean.

The Museo Frida Kahlo has expanded with a new museum in the beach town of Playa del Carmen.

The Museo Frida Kahlo Riviera Maya, which debuted earlier this summer, is located on Playa del Carmen’s always-bustling Quinta Avenida, or Fifth Avenue.

The colorful, modern museum opened its doors in time for the 110th anniversary of Kahlo’s birth, with a mix of audiovisual installations, exhibits and, of course, a collection of Kahlo’s artwork.

It’s the second location for the museum, whose original location is in Mexico City.

The Mexican painter was a legend of the art world thanks to a remarkable career in the first half of the 20th century.
