Amparo Museum is a "must" in your visit to Puebla. This is one of the best museums in the city; the permanent collection is a sample of the culture of Mexico. The place itself deserve the visit.

Amazing shows with contemporary mexican artists. We saw a Yosua Okon show that blew our minds - incisive, revealing and troubling but hilarious representation of the dark underbelly of the insidious worldwide corporate cultural revolution. Will go back for look at the permanent collections.

Beautiful museum with a nice terrace on the top, the view is amazing you can see few churches and the famous Puebla Cathedral. It's also possible to eat and have a drink there. The prehispanic collection is really interesting.

First rate, really nice local prehispanico stuff and very nice modern art (several special shows, quite cutting edge and political). Also a great rooftop for a drink.

With exhibits centering on Pre-Hispanic artifacts, Colonial Art and Modern Art, this museum is a part of any comprehensive visit to Puebla. In addition, there is a roof-top patio where you can rest your feet after walking the museum.
