A must see in Valladolid! So nice to be so warmly welcomed into someone's actual home. The collection was wonderful and Darwin brought it all to life through his brilliant explanations. Shame the owners were away as we would have loved to have met them. The Frida Kahlo room was a highlight as well as the stunning pool!

Very interesting and beautiful. Great tour guide and the owner even came to welcome us to his home at the beginning of the tour. Do not miss this opportunity.

This place is a hidden gem! The collection of pop art displayed here is vast and beautiful. Every piece is placed strategically to be admired to the fullest. Darwin was amazing, he knew every piece and the history behind it. A nice surprise was to meet Mr. Venator! He was so nice! Definitely a must if you are in Valladolid.

i loved that all the areas of Mexico were represented in the handicrafts that were collected. It was amazing to see the vast array of artwork. I love the Frida Kahlo themed room and the Dia de los Muertos calaveras.

It's simply mind-blowing how many pieces have been collected in the house, and how many they are still collecting. The tour is worth it to get a story behind a lot of the pieces presented there, and house itself is a beautiful ground for displaying everything. This is a cultural gem in Valladolid, and cannot be missed.

You have to arrive at 10am for the tour. It is well worth doing - the collection is fascinating. Rather anonymous from the outside - in fact difficult to spot.

I do not normally write reviews for attractions, only for hotels, but had to write one for this place as it is amazing. There is so much to see in one place, one doesn't know where to look. All of the art has a story and is interesting and varied. The actual house itself is amazing to look at. This... More

We recently visited Casa de los Venados on the recommendation of our B&B host, Dennis Larson of Casa Hamaca. The Casa de los Venados is a private home owned by John Venator and his wife. They are avid collectors of Mexican Folk Art and there cannot be a better collection anywhere in the world. The home is huge and just... More

La Casa de los Venados is a private historical colonial house, right off the main square, which has been totally renovated by the current owners in order to house their most impressive collection of Mexican popular art...perhaps the largest collection in private hands in the world. I was lucky enough to be the only one signed in for the daily... More
