Casa de los Venados, Valladolid

(4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Admire a fine private collection of Mexican folk art, and learn about the passion of the couple who collected it, at Casa de los Venados, the art gallery and home of American couple John and Dorianne Venator. Having bought the house in ruins, the couple spent 10 years remodeling it and filling it with over 3,000 items of Mexican folk art. Colorful skulls, antique furniture, and vibrant paintings dominate each room, bringing together different artistic styles and influences from across the country. Take a tour of the house, still home to the Venators, and learn about the history of the project. Add Casa de los Venados and other attractions to your Valladolid trip itinerary using our Valladolid vacation trip planner.

  • Amazing collection of popular Mexican art. I strongly recommend its visit!
