  • This great Museum has good traveling and temporary exhibitions which delight children and adults... It has had among its temporary exhibitors artists of the calibre of Javier Marín and Leonora Carrington, besides having been anfitrona of exposure (if I remember correctly...) Dreamworks kids a few months ago. Lit lounges and rooms well balanced with works of great quality. Essential to your visit to Monterrey.
