I knew I had to visit this place after seeing the many fantastic reviews, but the reality was so much more. Casa de los Venados is full of treasures.So many examples of the beautiful folk art that one can see all over Mexico...all in this one beautifully restored house. The owners, who now live there spend over 7 years in... More

A wonderful experience! From the stunning collection of folk art and the beautiful home in which it's displayed, to the knowledgeable guide and the gracious host this is, as others have stated, a "must see" in charming Valladolid.

There are over 3,000 pieces of folk art in this private collection. The pieces give you a different view of Mexican history, folklore and culture. The restored Spanish Colonial home that houses the collection is also architecturally quite interesting, a combination of old and very contemporary. Better yet, your small donation goes to local charities. A fun and colorful experience.

As others have said, this is a 'must-see'. Although the regular tours start at 10.00 daily, if you ask very nicely you may be taken around at other times, but remember to be generous as there is no formal fee but donations are encouraged at the end. Be prepared to be amazed: the indigenous art that the owner and his... More

If you love Mexican folk art you have to see this place. And if you don't love Mexican folk art, you have to see this place anyway, because it will give you a love for it, which will then give back to you every time you visit Mexico. Mexican folk art is one of the joyful things about this country,... More

This is a must see for anyone interested in mexican folk art as well as architecture. Loved the hacienda, and their collection is unmatched anywhere in Mexico.

This little gem of a house is not to be missed. The private house with it's collection of Mexican folk art is absolutely lovely. There's a guided tour at 10 am, otherwise you have to make an appointment. The art is insanely cool and the house itself beautiful. I'd kill to spend a few nights in one of those rooms.... More
