Loved the art and architecture. Lovely garden setting. Wish it had taken more time to walk through, as there are several areas in the house where you cannot go.

I have been visiting the Brady for decades, and will go again in October! I keep returning because the guides are so good, and because there are so many incredible things to see there. In addition to the incredible art, architecture, and furniture, I have enjoyed the movies which are shown some evenings. The director is a wonderful person, and... More

Its unusual to find a museum that so successfully maintains a sense of intimacy and so clearly reflects the personality of the owner (and his entourage). The collection is diverse and charmingly displayed. The staff is amazing, friendly and around when you need them.

The museum is located in what previously was the buildings belonging to the cathedral and the franciscan convent. It contains an impressive collection of folk and religious art from all continents, with majority of objects, naturally, of Mexican origin. The house itself (and its decor) is a pure gem and a rare visual delight. You will need no less than... More

This is a museum, consisting of the private residence of Robert Brady in more or less the exact condition he left it on his demise. It sits next to the cathedral, and we were told was once part of the cathedral property. If you enjoy house museums like the Musee Nissim de Camndo in Paris, you will enjoy this. It's... More

I have visited the Robert Brady museo many times and each time see something new. You can walk through the house on your own but going with an on-site guide is worth every pesos. I doubt you will leave the museo without at least taking one hundred pictures or more. Very colorful, very interesting and surprising and very worthwhile.

Brady bought a monastery and remade it into a remarkable home, decorated with art treasures and taste. My wife was ready to move in, and declared the kitchen the one she's been dreaming about. Located around the corner from the Cathedral. The bathrooms are incredible. Take the time to visit.

That must have been Robert Brady's opinion because there is hardly an inch between any two items throughout the house. If that sounds cluttered it couldn't be farther from the truth. Though the house is filled to the brim with interesting and beautiful art, it is all very tastefully appointed. I always love to visit the Brady House each time... More
