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

This big old mexican house itself is interesting, from the materials to the layout, as is Brady's collection of art from the entire world, from China, india, impressionist paintings, to Mexican artists and crafts, colonial paintings... It was quite unexpected to find quite so many things crammed into one place. Brady's personal life (whoever he was) also comes through in... More

I've visited the Brady dozens of times and always see something new. It is one of my favorite "museums" in the world. Robert Brady was a wealthy artist in the mid-20th century. When he died he left money and instructions to maintain his home as a museum… more or less exactly as it was the day he died. Since he... More

Robert Brady was an incredible collector of art, and his house is beautiful. The art ranges from religious to very secular, indigenous, Catholic, and cultures from Mexico all the way to Harlem, New York. There are two very nice works by Diego Rivera. A very enjoyable museum to see!

You will get plenty when you visit the Brady museum, formerly his private home in Cuernavaca. Unexpected color combinations and tiled-bathrooms that will make you run home and want to remodel!

Definitely the number one attraction in Cuernavaca. The quirky private collection of expat American Robert Brady...he really had a good eye for art and design.

This museum was a highlight of our recent 3 week trip to Mexico. Gorgeous collection by Robert Brady (it was his house). I kept gasping each time we entered a new room. The colors alone would make it worth seeing. It's connected to the old cathedral and was, I believe, a nunnery previously.
