  • If you had only one place to visit in Cuernavaca - this would be the place. An excellent architectural structure, which was originally the home of the priest of the adjacent Cathedral. Filled with ori...  more »
  • You won't know where to look first Or second. Or... well, you get the idea. Lots of artifacts, art, and a fabulous (former) home in which to see them. Architecture, art, a calm place in the city. 
  • A must for your visit to Cuernavaca. The place is magical, the House itself and its content. You can spend hours looking at every detail. Wonderful!

  • Amazing museum which gives us an idea of the way Robert Brady saw the world. He loved the world culture and he spent his life collecting beautiful pieces of art, that now became pieces of the human history too.
  • Don't miss it. So much US/Mexico history of the 1940s-70s in this museum. Don't miss the Josephine Baker bedroom. (Baker and Brady were pals and he built a special bedroom for his diva friend). Plus, major gay history that the museum quietly overlooks: He was probably (OK definitely) gay and has many tributes to his partners in the house. It's incredibly beautiful and constructed from a former convent (yes, start singing "Climb Ev'ry Mountain.")
  • I know it's a cliche - but if you only do one thing in Cuernavaca, make it the Robert Brady Museum. Stunning.
  • One of the best museums in Cuernavaca with parts from many parts of the world. It has an original painting of Frida Kahlo. Widely preferred.

  • A place historical, very small but full of details and memories, is to see different cultures in a very Mexican site
