Incredible collection (and house) showed me how much there is to learn about Mexican folk art

Wow, I had no idea about the richness, depth of Mexican folk art! Seeing so much great work, while learning some of the meaning and context, was fantastic. I'm hooked now. And... read more

Wow, I had no idea about the richness, depth of Mexican folk art! Seeing so much great work, while learning some of the meaning and context, was fantastic. I'm hooked now. And I love that the owners do so much for the community. The house itself is marvelously restored/rebuilt, too.

This tour was truly a highlight of our Mexico trip so far. The collection shows the whole range of Mexican folk art while also displaying Mexican history and culture. It is so cleverly curated, which makes it even more remarkable that this is a private home and the art serves as decoration. The furnishing is also part of the whole... More

This was a real "find" and definitely worth a stop. There is no entrance fee, however, donations are encouraged and the donations benefit a children's hospital - exclusively. This is a private collectors 'hacienda' and his generous spirit and superior taste are evident through-out.

This home/museum is not to be missed!! Fantastic collection of artifacts and commissioned pieces of art by local artists. The home is amazing and the whole experience is a $5 donation to a worthy cause.

When we visited Valladolid a few times in the past, we unfortunately didn't make time to visit Casa de los Venados. We were determined not to miss the opportunity on our most recent visit and we will never forget it. At 10am, we were given our semi-private tour (in perfect English) of this astounding collection of Mexican crafts by an... More

A must while in Valladolid. House tours are at 10am. A private home full of over 1500 Mexican folk art. Tour by donation, home is right around the corner of the church in the square. Well worth taking the time!

Interesting tour of a private home with an extensive art collection (made public for daily tours). We were lucky to arrive just as a tour was beginning, and we enjoyed it very much. The owner is very friendly and the tour fee is actually a donation that goes to local charities. Overall, I would do it again and/or recommend it... More

We read about this - private collectors who open their home to the public to share native art. We are so glad we went. We saw wonderful examples of handicrafts, and contemporary interpretations of the same. There is a fee, but worth it. The home is completely delightful (old building, with contemporary architecture in parts) and so is the guide... More
