We have visited the MARCO several times when in downtown Monterrey. There are usually interesting exhibits and it is a nice way to spend a few hours. I especially enjoy when they have live music playing around the indoor reflecting pool. Don't miss the gift shop. It is full of fascinating trinkets at affordable prices.

It has very good temporary expositions, but sometimes they are very dull, you have to check in their website in advance to see if it is something you'd like. It is free on Wednesdays

MARCO is by far the best museum in the city. The building is nice, and the collection is worth a visit. They also host different temporary exhibitions that are very good. They have a good restaurant in the premises and are close to other downtown attractions.

If you like art this is it!, the best museum here in Monterrey to explore art, it has some really nice displays, different ones according to the season. You can not miss this one, is really close to the main hotels in down town!

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.
