This private home and garden-turned-museum houses an eclectic collection of religious, folk, and ethnic art, including pre-Hispanic and colonial pieces; oil paintings by Frida Kahlo and Rufino Tamayo; popular Mexican art; and handicrafts from America, Africa, Asia, and India. Robert Brady, an Iowa native with a degree in fine arts from the Art Institute of Chicago, assembled the collections. The brightly decorated house (tiled with hand-painted Talavera throughout) is a work of art in its own right. Brady lived in Venice for 5 years before settling in Cuernavaca in 1960. The wildly colorful rooms remain exactly as Brady left them when he died here in 1986. Admission includes a guide in Spanish; English and French guides are available if requested in advance. A small cafe in the main patio serves refreshments.
