I dragged my husband here on our weekend in Valladolid, and he was glad I did. Our tour lasted an hour and a half, and was very comprehensive. We got to see many of the rooms in the private home, each replete with colorful artwork. The amount and quality of the artwork is amazing. I have certain favorites pieces that... More

Ok, if you like Mexican folk art. If not, spend more time at the ruins or one of the great reararaunts on the square.

We are skrry you did not fully enjoy your visit to our home. Yes...most of our visitors have "self selected" and know our home according to the former Mexican national secretary of tourism Gliria Guevara " has the largest museum quality collection of Mexican folk art in private hands"...with over 3,000 pieces.

A unique private home that was once a 16th-century hacienda, and is now an amzaing museum of Mexican folk art. Nothing like it anywhere. Tours are every day at 10 am, small donating goes to local non-profits. One person on the tour had been three times before. It's only an hour long, and thre is so much to see!

The current record holder is a lady who has a house at playa del Carmen . She has visited our home 8 times...each time bringing a friend with her. More

We were able to secure a private tour of this beautiful collection at an unusual time as a result of being on a private day-trip with Cancun Manny (see separate review). Valladolid is about 1/2 hour from Chichen Itza, and we were able to visit Casa de los Venados after an early-morning tour of the ruins. Mexican folk art is... More

This is a 'must see' if you spend a night in Valladolid. there are daily tours at 10am and you are asked to make a donation to charity. The house, which is home to an American couple, houses their amazing collection of wonderful artwork, mainly commissioned by them from living (or recently deceased) artists from all over Mexico. Beautiful, intriguing,... More

This museum is awesome. You get a tour at 10 am and can be in English or Spanish , not sure about other languages. The guide is very knowledgable and does a great job. This is a fantastic place to see art work from all over Mexico.
