  • What a wonderful surprise to see such a unique collection of art is such a well curated and preserved home.. This is a must see if you enjoy local art and decor! It's amazing to think of someone actua...  more »
  • Ex-Casa an American, collector of works of art of odo the world and which today are displayed in the House. You can be considered a "typical" House of Cuernavaca decorated with extraordinary taste. I interpret it as that sensitivity from abroad, that the typical common Mexican, becomes it art. The place, as well as objects that are displayed there is worth much.

  • 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.
