    It is without a doubt one of the best walks if you visit the city, you can find various exhibitions and films.

    They have excellent show, as the bed of nails. I went to an exhibition of Lego because I thought that had large structures, but they were only about 7 and the rest is for children to create figures was a little disappointing.

    Originally this place was home of one of the most important business in Monterrey history, he gave this place as a donation for city culture, therefore seems to be privately administrated, the place is well kept, offers science games for kids, museum, a variety of exhibitions from science, art, history and of course the main thing, Cosmos, Universe, a huge Imax screen that makes you feel you are inside the film, films which are around 45 mins in style of Discovery or NatGeo. This place is a must and has been a seeder of culture for several generations. Offers indoors and outdoors attractions, cafe, souvenirs and a small zoo. Oh I almost forget, there is also an observatory with profesional powerful telescope.
