“Amazing eclectic Mexican art in private collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

You should make a reservation to ensure you will be admitted since this is a private residence. Although a guided tour is provided, there is no admission price. At the end you will be asked to make a donation to support the charities supported by the owner of this collection. I consider this a must-do for anyone remotely interested in Mexican folk art. The experience is actually better than any museum I can think of. We also were able to meet meet the owner.

“Don't Miss This in Valladolid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

This house offers a unique opportunity to see a truly incredible collection of Mexican folkart. The owners have spared no expense. Many pieces were made especially for them by well known Mexican artists. The house is not only beautifully designed but the collection is carefully showcased in the home's many rooms. This is not to be missed.

“Beautiful property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We really enjoyed touring Casa de los Venados. The best part was listening to the owner, John, talk about individual pieces and the architecture. He's insightful and passionate about the property. He was also kind enough to give us some recommendations on other places to visit in the area.

“Amazing collection of Mexican Folk Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

An amazing collection of Mexican Folk Art in this beautiful restored colonial building. Tours are offered most days at 10 a.m. They expect you to give a donation of 60 Peso in the end of the tour which is going to social project. One of the best places I´ve vistited in Valladolid.
