The building is the main attraction at this museum. The permanent collection is small and the temporary exhibitions are really good but infrequently changed. Nice shop and good cafe too.

My wife and I HAD to see the Kubrick exhibition while it was in Monterrey and we weren't disappointed. We're both Kubrick fans and loved the documents and notes from his films. His early photographs were great too. No complaints here!

Small museum with only three exhibit spaces but they were well utilized. The highlight on my visit wa she Stanley Kubrick exhibit which included photographs, film footage, set design, and costumes from all his movies. The permanent collection is small but interesting. One of the better museums of its kind in Mexcio.

For only 80 pesos I got to see three exhibitions, including the Kubrick one. The layout was good, honestly I didn't expect to see a nice contemporary art museum in Monterrey but this one was beyond my expectation

If you like art this is the best chance to go and enjoy of contemporary art in a space designed by Ricardo Legorreta, that is the best representation of mexican style with modern lines.

When I went I got to see the Stank Kubrik exposition, it was very interesting but I know its not for everyone, either way it was a nice thing to do in the city.
