  • This is a beautiful and historic setting. There is s gallery which was in the process of changing artists so I didn't get to see it. There are beautiful fountains, but none were functioning. Entrance ...  read more »
  • It is a unique Museum. With important collection of pieces from all the world and common eclectic character, this place becomes a must-see. In addition to seeing your collection of excesses, most importantly is to be in the intimacy of a character within the echelons of power and with whom he shared his home. With an incredible architecture, this place already has special magic, which makes the trip special. It is not the greatest wonder of the world, but for its unique style makes it special.

  • We found the Museum by chance, and it has been an important point in our visit to Cuernavaca. Very complete and very varied her collection of art of the Sr Brady. Pictures of notable Mexican artists, sacred, oriental and African art. The best however is the House and its history. It is worth to know it.

  • 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.
  • A must in Cuernavaca for visit, the House is beautiful to the collections that are displayed is in the Center, fantastic to visit with the family.
