  • It is a very interesting Museum with variety of exhibitions, in addition to extra activities for children, young people and adults, since it has various workshops and that makes it more dynamic.

  • The Museum seemed very nice, had a very good exposure and were preparing for a wedding that took place that night

  • The best Museum (of the 3 that is) of the city. It has international exhibitions, such as Otto Dix, who first came to Monterrey before recitals every Thursday, CDMX, workshops, etc.
