For the most part, this was a good museum space. The architecture is modern and the location is central. On Wednesdays, admission is free. We were lucky enough to visit during a Tomás Saraceno exhibit. Amazing!

Exhibitions are really interesting and the space is very modern. Major artists but not global giants. It is the best museum in Monterrey so far in my honest opinion. It has gift shop and souvenirs, and a good restaurant with buffet service. Wednesdays is free...More
