  • A room modern and spacious in the heart of Monterrey which displays interesting exhibitions for all ages. The beauty of the place are the exhibitions. Sometimes present attraction for all ages as the current lines and more still that of Dreamworks Animation, I remember a very similar but Disney a few years ago. The entrance is of 90 adults and 60 children from the age of 6. Face if you compare it with other museums. They should have some family Pack option. Parking provided you find is free to enter by Dr. Coss. You do travel time approximately two hours. Or depending on the exhibitions presented.

  • I liked it much. Only two exhibitions had been one of Vik Muniz and another of Jeongmoon Choi, both great! In April will be an exhibition of Dreamworks I guess it worth to see it. Friendly atmosphere and the attendance of Museum staff. It is worth investing 2 hrs visit to the Museum.
