  • This small museum helps you understand why Cuernavaca is the magical place that artists, intellectuals and famous people choose to live. The colonial architecture blends with the Indian, Mexican and sacred art creating an eclectic and colorful atmosphere that manages to relax to admire objects and artworks that saturate spaces as you explore the Museum. It is a space where the climate of Cuernavaca, forever spring, manifests and you can take some photos outdoors in their gardens and stairs, which no doubt you will remember forever.

  • The attention of Sergio and his ability to remember so many details throughout history both the Museum and the Nezahualcoyotl Street and all the artists who lived on that street as the street of the stars in Hollywood California

  • A must in Cuernavaca. It is a huge collection of art, handcrafts and everything to have a nice life. Tom Brady was a lover of the world.  more »

  • 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.
  • Good ^~^
  • Good option for describe megalomania of a man that traveled by all the world leaving us a legacy cultural very good. You can see the home object in your home.
