  • Interesting museum. Very well done. We liked the Mexican art but were not a fan of the contemporary/modern section. Check out the rooftop bar.  more »

  • I love how the exhibit rooms are connected one to the other due to the construction of the house. Their permanent exhibits are really good and they offer a lot of activities on they museum nights.
  • The best part of this museum is its architecture. The exhibitions are fine. The rooftop offers great views and a relaxing place for an evening cocktail/beer.
  • Only was able to visit the pre-hispanic section but it was very inspiring and beautiful. Will look forward to spending more time here in the future!
  • On the top floor of this museum there is a cafeteria with an incredible view of the historic center of Puebla. You can take good panoramic photographs.
  • This museum hold amazing art pieces from the world. Located in Puebla, this is a "you must have to go" place!
