  • Worth the drive. Attention, the schedule is a little weird. Most of the museums are closed on Mondays but it is closed on Tuesday.

  • It is a very modern Museum, a restoration of the impeccable building. Full and very professional staff. The cafeteria area in the last plant has a wonderful view and very nice. Monday is free entry.

  • This is a must when visiting Puebla. A beautiful and interesting museum. The museum provides an overview of Mexican art from the Pre-Columbian period to present day. 
  • Great contemporary art museum in Puebla city, the new building is well designed and the rooftop is a must to have a drink while you enjoy the city line. The exhibitions are very good
  • Its a nice space and building. The artwork was different to what I imagined would be in there but still enjoyable. There was some rooms filled with Mexican history and furniture which was interesting. Some of the contemporary pieces weren't so. The best bit for me was the roof and the views of the City from up there.
  • Great museum, must visit if you're in Puebla
  • Visit the beautiful rooftop with 360 views of the city.
  • beautiful place!
