A truly world class collection of Mexican folk art set in a wonderful building. Had the tour to myself and Darwin, the guide, was a fount of knowledge and made the experience special for me.

After reading the reviews, we knew we had to see Casa de los Venados in Valladolid. We got there for the 10 AM tour, and it was excellent. The guide, Miriam, is knowledgeable, and gives the tour in both English and Spanish. This home is amazing, with a huge collection of Mexican folk art. It's immaculately clean, and just fascinating.... More

Normally we open the house every single day of the year for tours in English or Spanish at... More

What an absolutely incredible experience. The Venators have such a beautiful collection of Mexican folk art that left us stunned and in awe. Our lovely guide was super knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly--he took us from room to room explaining the stories behind many of the art pieces. I really can't explain how amazing the art collection is and how generous... More

An absolutely stunning house of art which moved me to tears. The owner has truly created something special here that everyone should see if they're in Valladolid. The tour guide Darwin was excellent as well. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Mr. and Mrs. Venator have amassed a wonderful collection of contemporary Mexican art from many regions of Mexico including a large amount of Mayan art from local Valladolid artists, sculptors and painters. The size of the collection allows for much diversity while maintaining the continuity of the regional influences in the many pieces. This is a private residence which is... More

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!
