Casa de los Venados translating to House of the Deer, is an 18,000 square foot private home/ folk art museum located near the main square of Velladolid. An unassuming sign outside the main door doesn't give away much to whats inside - over 3000 pieces of museum quality Mexican folk and contemporary art. While the Venators continue to live in this house museum, they offer daily tours at 10am in English and Spanish for a $5 suggested donation, through which they support local charities. A visit to Casa de los Venados is not to be missed!

Fun place to visit
This is a house / museum of traditional mexican crafts, collected by an american expat couple. The crafts are beautiful (from all over Mexico, not just the Yucatan) and the house itself is stunning. You knock on the door and someone will take you around personally.
