This was one of my favorite things in the Yucatan. This private home is opened up every day at 10am for a private tour. The gorgeous collection of Mexican folk art is unsurpassed and the home itself is phenomenal. Its definitely worth the visit!!!

Oh my goodness, we've never seen anything quite like this before. Don't want to say too much to spoil it for people but definitely a must-see for culture. It's amazing what the family has done to the place. The staff members are great!

This was one of my favorite cities and experiences in Mexico. The owner is a Mexican Folk Art collector and ended up turning his house into a museum that you can visit. He donates the proceeds to local charities. Our guide was really knowledgable and friendly. If you like Mexican Folk art this is a must see!!

We visited La Casa de los Venados yesterday as it came highly recommended. We were not dissapointed, we spent a fantastic couple of hours admiring John and Dorianne's impressive collection of art. The guide was excellent and seemed enthused by his work. The visit is free however we ended up leaving more than we would for an ordinary museum as... More

My boyfriend and I took a tour through this house today and it was great. The art is amazing. The guide who showed us around was very knowledgable and we really loved it. You don't have to be a crazy art buff either to enjoy although if you are you may die of pleasure. Mexican folk art is loud and... More

Really enjoyed the tour of this place. The house was filled with amazing artifacts and items from around Mexico. We could have sent the entire day! Highly recommend. Thanks to the owners for opening up their home for tours.

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to visit this casa today. John opens his home at 10am for a guided tour which lasts an hour. The art is amazing and the house has made me incredibly jealous! Make sure you include this in your trip! All donations go to charity too, which is an added bonus!
