Not bad, the best part was the third floor with all of the glass sculptures and the gallery. I think people should be allowed to take pictures without flash.

The history behind the making of glass bottles and other types of custom glass unfolds throughout this museum. It really is one of a kind.

I was curious since it was so highly rated in Monterrey by others. It was a little out of the way; I had to take a taxi to get there. The museum is way in the back of a working industrial glass plant. You walk...More
