Robert Brady Museum occupies a 16th-century building that served as the residences of a noted American artist, who spent as much time collecting as creating art.

Look for works by well-known artists, including Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Brady's own works include a portrait of his friend and fellow art lover Peggy Guggenheim.

  • GREAT MUSEUM!
  • 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.
