My travel group, Project World School, visited Casa de Los Venados yesterday during our time in Valladolid. We absolutely adored it! Our guides were extremely knowledgable and the owners were also incredible to talk to. The collection itself is beyond impressive and I 100% recommend this as a place to visit in your time in Valladolid.

Fine collection of Mexican folk art housed in the superbly renovated 17th century hacienda of John and Dorianne Venator. Outstanding art in a superb setting. Our guide, Arnaldo, was excellent. Be there earlier than the 10 AM tour start time. Donation of at least 80 pesos goes to charitable institutions in Valladolid. Don't miss this.

Our tour guide was the owner of the house and collection and what a treat it was to hear his stories about the various marvellous treasures in the... More

Arrive early for the 10 am tour which can be in english or spanish. This private folk art collection is exceptional and represents all areas of Mexico. This is a private home (18000 sq ft) and as exceptional as the art.

Words can not describe this wonderful house/museum.The Mexican art has been gathered from all overMexico by an American couple wh have restored the house.One should not ever go to Valldolid without visiting. We had an English speaking tour. It started at 10a.m. ENJOY!!

This is an amazing collection of Mexican folk art, housed in a beautiful renovated house just off the main square in Valladolid. The guided tour (daily at 10am sharp) lasts around an hour and gives a really good overview of the art and other features of the house. Every room is full of fascinating pieces - paintings, sculptures, photos and... More

This was one of the two highlights of our recent Yucatan trip! Far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful home and fantastic art collection. The owners are most gracious to share this with the public in return for a modest donation that they forward to charities.
