  • The Museum of Contemporary Art, better known as MARCO, is an institution in Monterrey and is placed as one of the best art museums in Mexico. Very spacious, with a good cafeteria, is friendly with the visitor. A museum to see in Monterrey.

  • In Addition to being the quintessential cultural choice in Monterrey, the food in your restaurant inside the Museum is very attractive. Good food, high price. But you don't go out and continue with you tour within MARCO for me now is a valuable option in business lunch even.
