  • 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
  • beautiful place!
  • Visit the beautiful rooftop with 360 views of the city.
