  • Always have some great exposure and usually is the top floor, the space is very large, the architecture of the amazing place, have tables to sit, lift, private parking, bathrooms, restaurants, souvenir shop and always have days of free entry, the only bad thing is that when they already go to close, not only because not let... If these in face of the place lol so it comes with time.

  • FRAMEWORK is to my taste the best Museum of Nuevo Leon. The designed by architect Legorreta, is masterful, the management of natural light inside the building and the double and triple heights create an imposing and beautiful indoor environment at the same time. The central courtyard is the thread conductoe of the building, can be seen from most of the ground floor exhibition rooms. Although it is a very clean and minimalist architecture, every detail was care. Collections and exhibitions presenting framework are first rate and the Museology is not far behind. It has parking in the basement and is free of charge. Free admission on Wednesdays. There is no excuse to visit this wonderful place.
