I left Cancun ahead of hurricane Delta and spent 4 days in Valladolid. Thankfully, Casa de los Venados had reopened and I had the opportunity to visit on October 10, 2020. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but boy oh boy will you'll love it once you get inside. It's a beautiful home/museum and well worth your time. My guide told me that they offer tours at 10am, 11:30am and 1pm daily. If you have a large group and want to visit outside of these hours, you can call to see if a guide would be available. The guides are volunteers and tips are appreciated. The admission price to tour the casa is a $100 pesos / $5 US donation (at the time of this post). The collection is mind blowing. FYI, you are on a guided tour and don't just get to roam the collection on your own. It's an impressive collection and I would definitely visit again, there is so much to see.

This was perhaps our favorite activity on our three day visit to Valladolid. There is a wonderful collection of Mexican folk art, with some of the 3000+ pieces being museum quality. Our tour guide David was most helpful and interesting. You are asked for a donation that will be used to support various activities in the city. We did not sense any pressure to donate and the requested amount is a very reasonable US five dollars per person . This covers seeing a lovely private home on a one hour plus guided tour with a small group . It is located just off the Zocalo and we would highly recommend your spending an hour or more here. The tour leaves at 10 AM.

Don’t miss this house! It is a private home so self guided tours are not possible. Our group tour (a little over an hour) was scheduled for 1:00 and was remarkable. The 3000 pieces of Mexican folk art were stunning but even better was the narrative by the guide , David, and the way he related it all to Mexican culture. Towards the end the owner of the house greeted us- remarkable he opens his absolutely beautiful home (including his own personal quarters) to the public.
The suggested donation of 100 pesos per person (well worth it) goes to local charities.

This was our second visit to this wonderful home / exhibition. We took friends with us and they were also enthralled.

A family home filled with the most impressive collection of traditional Mexican folk-art - one of the largest and best in Mexico. Every square inch features something that will amaze.

The bonus is that it is owned by a Rotarian who donates funds collected from the small entry fee to local charities. A wonderful experience while helping those in need.

Wow! Casa de los Venados is a treasure house of Mexican art — a private home that explodes with the colors and traditions of Mexico. Do not miss this gem. It’s crammed with art — exquisite examples of the "trees of life" and playful skeletons found in Mexican art markets, plus paintings, murals, textiles, ceramics, a room dedicated to Frida Kahlo, and much more. The owners are incredibly generous in allowing you to tour the entire house (at appointed times, with a guide, so be sure to check ahead for hours), and are very active in local charities. Don’t miss the dining room, with chairs featuring the faces of Mexican heroes. Located right off the main square in Valladolid, you could easily visit Casa de los Venados on a day trip to nearby Chichen Itza or the ruins of Ek Balam. The owners say they want to foster a better appreciation of Mexican traditional art. They have certainly done so!

Highly recommended! This is an amazing private home, filled with beautiful examples of Mexican folk art collected over the years by the owners who are still in residence.

Tours are guided in small groups. We made a two-hour journey specifically to visit and timed our arrival to catch the first tour at 10am. Another tour started just as we finished at 11:30am. I don't know the timing of subsequent tours, so best to check if you're arriving later.

Don't forget to bring some cash, as there's a request for a donation - which goes entirely to support local charities.

This is a house owned by a couple of old retired Americans who charge people for looking around.
The principle is pretty messed up. They call it a donation which in essence it implies that people aren’t obligated to give.
Just try going without paying... You’ll get a door slamming if you’re lucky...

Not worth the time...

You will find this hidden gem jus a few blocks off the central plaza. We rang the bell and were greeted by a very knowledgeable guide who sanitized us and took our temperature. Then he made sure we understood that there was no admission charge but that we would be requested to make a charitible donation of 100 pesos at the end of the tour.

We quickly agreed feeling that It is very generous of the owners to share their collection with the public and happy to support their chosen charity. That was a good decision. Our guide seemed to know the life story of every artist and art piece represented!

This os a beautiful collection that will truly open your eyes to see the beauty and diversity of the mexican people, their lives and their art. Don’t miss it!

Owners have opened up their home to the public and have on display hundreds of pieces of Mexican folk art that are just wonderful.
Small donation is required to tour the home and proceeds go for their continued efforts of helping the community and other young artists pursuing their passion. The local guides are full of great history and do a great job in explaining the concept of Casa de Los Venados.
Unassuming front door of the building leads into a beautiful home with a gorgeous open air patio and also a beautiful pool.
