The collection is as delightful as the architecture of a space that is a work of art in itself. Beautifully landscaped, one imagines the life of Brady and his amazing collection arranged by subject matter. A wonderful collection of masks, tile works, and curious objects that delight, made this a wonderful place with a background as interesting as the works... More

This is a beautiful and historic setting. There is s gallery which was in the process of changing artists so I didn't get to see it. There are beautiful fountains, but none were functioning. Entrance is $30 pesos, or $15 for seniors (tercera edad).

The Museum director Alberto gave us a wonderful insight into the treasures held at this first class museum. I highly recommend it to anyone spending time in Cuernavaca.

I had only a limited time in Cuernavaca for Spanish study. A trip to the Brady Museum in the heart of downtown should be on everyone's short list. The entrance fee is not high, but you should opt to pay the extra $15 U.S. for a guided tour to explain all of the art and history that are here or... More

For many art lovers, this house has an interesting eclectic collection. For me, the architecture, colors and decoration of the house are awesome. This is a typical downtown house in Cuernavaca, from the outside, it doesn´t say much, once you're inside, the architecture is amazing, the patios, the perfectly well preserved kitchen and Brady's particular decoration are worth visiting.

IS a very interesting place where you can realize the intellectual environment that took place in Cuernavaca the last quarter of the XXth century. In Cuernavaca were living important personallities from the intellectual, arttistic and philosohical world. The collection is quite unique and is "must" if you visit this city.

Such an eclectic collection-miniature sculptures of the Last Supper where they're all eating slices of watermelon, posters of Josephine Baker in the amazingly-tiled bathroom, and it's right up against the cathedral. A great place to spend a couple of hours.

A sweet home, left like it was when Robert Brady lived there. Magical setting and art. I can only imagine the parties he threw!
