I just went yesterday. Mr. Brady's house is gorgeous. The house is kept as if he were still living there and the collection is impressive. Figures, statuettes, utenlsils, paintings and furniture from so many places and times decorate all the walls, and there 's even an original Kahlo (on loan now). The house is so well located and the premises... More

Nice art, nice colors all over, very eccentric reflecting the former owner. Nice staff--they give you space to walk around and take pictures. NO flash. Do not expect a souvenir store, but the place is nice.

Is it primarily an art museum that shows us how art from all around the globe represents the similarities of our humanity? Or is it a glimpse into a lifestyle of the 60' - 70's jet set? Either way, it is a wonderful way to spend some time in Cuernavaca!

If you happen to be in Cuernavaca, Mexico, visit the Robert Brady Museum, located in the city next to the beautiful 16th century Cathedral. This museum is a real house with 14 different rooms. It was the home of Mr. Brady, American artist and house decorator that died in1986. It takes time to admire each little tapestry, painting, ceramic, etc... More

This a small museum, but it is not to measure it for its length, but its contents. It contains an important private collecton of paintings and artifacts, tons of museums would die for. The location as well will give you the typicall environment of a downtown old house,

The museum is very unique and colorful. Ahhh, the parties that must have been thrown there! There are a ton of artworks from paintings to masks and the interior design is amazing. Favorite tourist site in Cuernavaca!

Absolutely worth a visit. Excellent art collection, very eclectic. Some Frieda Kahlo art. The gardens are done so tastefully and are lovely. I felt so relaxed in this space. Nice little cafe, for a cup of tea . Happy, soothing space, a gem.

This was once the private home of a wealthy American art patron. The house itself is gorgeous, right behind the Cathedral, with a small but beautifully landscaped garden. Each room is like a jewel box filled with exquisite works of art, many of them prime examples of Mexican "folk art," rugs, masks, pottery, religious art, mixed with paintings and drawings... More

Loved the Robert Brady Museum. The Museum gives a very personal view of the collection of Robert Brady. The collection is shown with Mr. Brady's home and gardens. Worth a visit just to see his home and gardens. The collection is very personal of his travels and life.

Words cannot do justice to the surreal beauty of the place. It is pure pleasure to visit this eccentric american's home and appreciate his sense of art, humor, and subversion. I wish there was more information on him.
