Unlike the vast majority of museums, the Valladolid Deer House is a private mansion that takes pride in having the greatest quantity of Mexican folk art products in the same hands: more than 3,000 pieces add their collection.


GET TO THE LOCAL ART


From the moment you step inside the house, you will realize that it is not your average museum. The valuable pieces of popular art are not protected behind a glass or a display case. As there is nothing between each piece and yourself, you can appreciate in a much more natural way everything around you and acknowledge the trust the owners have put into your hands. 
Make a splash of color and fantasy between the corridors and carefully arranged rooms for your enjoyment. Pay attention to every detail of the catrinas, the pots, the painted chairs and the embroidered cushions on the chairs. Explore the delicately arranged table, the colorful pictures displayed on the walls, the trees of life and the fantastic animals. 


DEEPEN IN THE WORDS


Take a guided tour in Spanish or English to share with your foreign and Mexican friends the tour of this beautiful house. Listen to stories about the origin, the legends and the curiosities of the main pieces. Learn about the house traditions and about the mansion restoration process to become what it is today.
