  • I absolutely recommend visiting this place when traveling to Monterrey. Try visiting on a Wednesday when there's no entrance fee otherwise pay $90 MXN on any other day. The art here is original and beautiful. Plenty of picture opportunities and a great amount of history.
  • They change of exhibits often and the presentations and the installations are superb.
