This was one of the highlights of our trip - beautiful art in a stunning house. Thanks to John for opening up his home every day and for channelling visitors' donations back to the local community.

I was enthralled from the beginning to the end. The house is beautiful and the Mayan art is stunning. The tour is very informative with explanations of the art and where it came from. I took a day trip Akumal to Valladolid to see all the churches and was so glad i stopped to see this beautiful house. If your... More

I love Mexican Folk Art and really appreciate how the owners opened their home to visitors to enjoy their impressive collection. I snuck away from my family (and kids) to visit Casa delos Venados - I don't recommend bringing children for the tour.

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to our home and the tour to see our collection of over 3,000 pieces of Mexican folk art. Generally I would agree with you about not bringing very young children on the tour. However, many families who have come with grade school age children - have told us their children have said...

The home is truly a gem and a wonderful way to experience a vast collection of Mexican folk art. We were greeted by woman who immediately took us in and escorted us to a tour guide who provided us with a well-rounded explanation of the history, architecture, and collection of art. Located on a street amongst beautiful pastel facades. It... More

Amazing display of Mexican Art in a tastefully restored and preserved colonial mansion. Tours are once a day.

We didn't plan to visit this museum but another traveller tipped us off to it and we're so glad we took his advise and got to see it. One of the best art gallery / museums you could ever visit with all the money going to local charities. John and Dorianne open the doors of their home each day at... More

Lovely and interesting art work in an old colonial home. The every day tour makes for a great experience while in Valladolid.

They had tours in Spanish and English. The house was beautiful, I especially liked all the art in the bedrooms. The pool and dining rooms were great. They definitely deserve a small donation!

John Venator, the owner of the house and collection, is an inspiration of how to enjoy a collection and give back to the community. The colonial house has been remodeled in a way to maintain the feeling of the colonial structure, display the tremendous art collection and be livable with modern conveniences. Many of the pieces of art were done... More
