We LOVED this tour with a capital L. The art is fantastic and the story of the home and collection is fascinating. The owners, who have generously opened their home to tours, are very welcoming. Inspirational. Be on time or you will miss the one...More

This is a private home, whose owner ( a former tech industrialist) restored it back to its original glory (height of colonial Mexico) and improved with modern conveniences in order to retire here and also to house one if not the most extensive collection of...More

Had an amazing experience here: an incredibly interesting private collection of Mexican folk art pieces. Beautiful, surreal, bizarre. In every room and corner is a fascinating object... wish I could have explored for much longer. The tour moves quickly and you can either pay attention...More

First of all, this review is not based on the collection itself, for the simple reason that we didn't get to see it. At the door, a rude man named Carlos told us that there is a minimum donation of M$100. I have no problem...More

Private collection in a welcoming home like you have not seen before. The owners stroll around the house while you visit. Call to confirm tour hours or you won’t be allowed to visit. Donations are welcome to support local needs. Best place to visit in...More

This is a really neat museum that a philanthropic couple runs out of their own home. It features their private collection of commissioned and authentic Mexican art, which they encourage you to explore and touch. I even got to pet their dog! The tour is...More

Fabulous. Incredible things to see, looking up and then down. Some old things, and some modern riffs based on old things. Just amazing work. Having worked a remodel on a small house, I have a challenge imagining how one gets this done on such a...More

What an unexpected surprise. This house has a private collection of 5,000 pieces of Mexican folk art, apparently the second largest in the country next to the national museum. It's hard to take in all in during the 1.5 hour tour. In addition, the home...More

We did not really know what to expect when visiting Casa de los Venados, but we were pleasantly surprised! The art may not be your taste (as it is an incredibly diverse collection, it is almost impossible that you will like everything) but it is...More

The tour begins when you knock on the door (once!). They ask for a donation of about 100 pesos per person, which goes to worthwhile local charities. The tour guides look after both the owners and the exhibits. This private... More
