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!
