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!

Interesting guy . . . I don't know much about him but he seemed to know everyone in the art world and they all gave him art. Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and more. I recommend hiring a guide to explain all the stuff. Otherwise you'll be walking through someone's house which is filled to the brim with stuff and wonder,... More

From the big wood doors that face the street, to the sitting area at the terrace, everything about this was enchanting.. it was old true Mexican architecture. It was like being in a time warp. The extensive art collection, paintings, sculptures, from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America, North America, all very tastefully displayed, my kids ages 12 and 9... More

What a great museum!!! We spent well over an hour going through each room and admiring all of the art pieces. It's a world wide collection of eclectic pieces. The house itself is a worthwhile visit but the art, including Frida Kahlo originals, is definitely a top destination in Cuernavaca.

I really love this museum. I have been here twice. It is the perfect size and a great spot to check out if you are on a day trip in Cuernavaca. I love how the museum is set up. It is a great way to compare many different styles of art. Nice midday break from the hot sun.

I was very tired of seeing the same kind of museums, however I decided to take a look. Once you are inside the house you would be amaze to see the incredible decoration with all the art that he collected. Each piece is assigned in a particular spot, each room of the house has a peculiar decoration that its different... More
