The building itself was really beautiful and we'll kept. The photography exhibit there was absolutely stunning. I really enjoyed it. A great way to spend a few hours in the center of the city. Air conditioning was welcomed in the midday heat.

Located next to Monterrey's Cathedral, the Macro is a must see while visiting. I really enjoyed the current Tamayo exhibit, and had never seen so many of his paintings in one place. Free on Wednesdays.

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.

It's a good place to spend couple of hours . The architecture built very nice. The statues are sculpted with best design.

A MUST-DO for those in Monterrey. On Wednesdays the museum is free (and busier), but definitely still enjoyable. Two of the three exhibits we saw (all not permanent) were great! A South Korean artist using black light and wire installations was interactive and exciting. The...More

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.
