“The Museum is a private collection”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Not only is the a beautiful house, each room is filled with art, folk art, and photographs from
Mr. Brady’s travels and guest. A great place to spend an hour or two. Close to downtown Cuernavaca.
A great place to see what life was like for the rich and Hollywood expats in the 50’s.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

One-of-a-kind house of an eccentric American art collector. Good friend of Peggy Guggenheim, Josephine Baker, among many. The house itself is the main "museum piece" and the art collection is outstanding--wide ranging in geography and time. He lived with his art collection and all is left as was when he died in 1986, it is said.

“DON'T MISS THE ROBERT BRADY MUSEUM”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Absolutely stunning, and we only discovered it accidentally. Left as the owner had it when he lived there, a world reknown art and artifact collector. Do not miss this museum!!

“Loved every minute of it”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you love rare, unusual and eclectic items from around the world, you will love this museum. I am reminded a bit of Gaudi buildings in Barcelona but of course, not much can be as spectacular as what Gaudi did. Well worth your time.
