If you have any interest at all in folk art, you must stop here and have a tour. This is a private residence but for a donation to a local charity, you will be able to see a great part of this couple's stunning collection. Absolutely amazing, beautiful artwork on display in this gorgeously renovated colonial house!

As a museum, it houses many artifacts masks presented as a private collection, but open for everyone to see. there are... More

We were lucky enough to be given a tour of this incredible house by the owner John. Both him and his wife were so kind to answer our questions and most especially to share their home with perfect strangers. You just have to see to believe. One of our best travel memories EVER!

We traveled throughout the Yucatan and this was my favorite thing we did over 10 days. They conduct a tour everyday at 10AM sharp. It is an 18000 sq ft private home of the most amazing art you have ever seen! NOt to mention the interior design and the pool area is jaw dropping. The interesting thing about this place... More

We decided to visit based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. This attraction far exceeded our expectations. It was a living museum, a feast for the eyes. I could easily return again and again, there was so much to see. Great value. Show up for the daily 10am tour. Approximately 1 hour, and a $6 donation suggested. Our guide... More

The art collection is absolutely world-class and not to be missed. You get a tour of the house, which is fabulous and filled with every type of Mexican art and pottery, collected lovingly over many years. Tour takes about an hour----photos encouraged---you'll be thinking and talking about it for years to come. What a vision this man has had, and... More

I have spent years in Mexico and have devoted much of that time to learning about Mexican folk art. The collection at Casa de los Venados is the best personal collection I have ever seen. The Venators open their private home every day to visitors at 10:00. If John is at home, as he was the day we visited, he... More

American man, the owner of the house, took us to a walk trought the house and told us so many stories about the past and how they reconstructed the house, what they do... You will have chance to see so many pieces of modern art. This is house museum that offers pieces you will not be able to see anywhere... More
