The Museo Dolores Olmedo (or the Dolores Olmedo Museum) is an art museum in the capital of Mexico, based on the collection of the Mexican businesswoman Dolores Olmedo.

In 1962, Dolores Olmedo acquired a property at La Noria, Xochimilco in southern Mexico City, which she would later convert into the museum named after herself in 1994. Donating her entire collection of art including pre-Hispanic, colonial, folk, modern and contemporary art, the Dolores Olmedo Patiño Museum host the greatest collection of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Angelina Beloff. Upon her death in 2002, she left funds for taking care of her museum, now open to the public.

The five-building complex contains up to 150 paintings, including 145 by Diego Rivera, 25 by his wife Frida Kahlo (and some of their scripts and drawings), nearly 6,000 pre-Hispanic figurines and sculptures as well diverse living animals such as geese, ducks, six Xoloitzcuintles and Indian Peafowls kept in the gardens of the museum.

Recently new areas have been added to the museum, "her private rooms" where she kept original decorations of her house such as ivory, china, and artwork by artist whom she nurtured in her latter years including José Juárez and Francisco Guevara.[citation needed]. The museum now holds a permanent exhibition of works by Russian-Mexican artist Angelina Beloff.

Upon the death of his wife, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera instructed Dolores Olmedo Patino, his wealthy patron, to purchase all the Kahlo paintings she could find. Paying little for these now priceless works, Olmedo managed to "corner the market" on Kahlo's work, thus insuring that no substantive exhibition of Kahlo's art could be launched without Olmedo's collection (approximately 27 pieces) being involved. Olmedo had little use for Kahlo, finding her lifestyle disreputable and her art pedestrian. Ironically, it was Frida's work (and not her beloved Diego's) that proved a lucrative investment for the savvy patron. As Diego faced death, he named Olmedo as administrator for the joint estates of Kahlo/Rivera, specifying the establishment of "free" museums for the Mexican people.

Note: Photograpy is not permitted inside the museum.

The Mexico City International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México or AICM), also called Benito Juárez International Airport (IATA: MEX, ICAO: MMMX) is the major commercial airport that serves Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. It is also Mexico's and Latin America's busiest airport!
