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. You'll find over a thousand pieces here, including carvings, paintings, textiles, and folk artifacts Brady picked up on his travels around the world. 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.

  • Basically a walk through someone’s nice house, except he was an obsessive collector, with a Western Gaze and had a lust for things “exotic” and had the privilege and financial means to travel extensively and amass a great collection and build a nice house where he invited a lot of people who valued this kind of social currency. The place offers an intimate look at the space that eccentric Robert Brady inhabited + what a way to get a close up and wonder about the motivations he had and wonder about his life. Check it out and come see bathrooms and beds and a well-stocked kitchen and even more—a pool that no one uses anymore! He’d totally be sad about that. Dive in! It’s not just a dare, it’s a double dare!
  • one treasure museum that is really worth a visit. true Cuernavaca charm!
  • A beautiful place with so much history!I love it
  • Great Museum - the site is directly behind the Cathedral and you can see the top from the inner courtyard. The museum used to be Robert Brady's house and was converted into a museum. It's worth a quick visit not just because the house is really interesting but it's filled with artwork that he collected over the course of his lifetime. The museum guide takes you room by room and gives specific highlights. very lovely and can be short if necessary (we spent less than an hour there) but lengthened if you really want to take time to look at all the different features & artworks.
  • Nice museum and lots of things that he collected. Kinda small tho.
