Featuring three traveling exhibit halls, this museum brings world-class traveling exhibits to Monterrey. Exhibits are amazing and wide-ranging. The constantly rotating exhibits are always excellent. We have seen exhibits featuring every media and are well presented often in Spanish and English.

A beautiful contemporary building houses a large exhibition space which had two special exhibits when I was there in March 2017. Signs were in English and Spanish, it was all very well done and well presented.

It is always suggested to keep an eye on the exhibitions being displayed as well as the up coming ones. Its program is always changing and renewing.

The place itself feels quite old but what's inside is invaluable. Even more when all the exhibits are temporary which means that you can go and go again and always will find something new and amazing. There are few museums like this in the country,...More
