We were fortunate to visit the museum during two spectacular temporary exhibits. The building is very well designed and accessible. I will certainly return anytime I am in Monterrey. The museum is free on Wednesdays.

This is simply the best art museum in Monterrey, and probably in Northern Mexico. It has an excellent permanent collection and will always have good temporary exhibits. If you happen to be in Monterrey and like art, MARCO is not to be missed.

The Contemporary Art Museum ( MARCO) is an excellent option if you are visiting Monterrey. You may want to get there by registered taxi cabs or driven by locals, friends or family. The building itself as well as the exhibitions are world class. Tip: wednesdays are free.

Current exhibitions vary but the ones we saw were excellent and worth 2 to 3 hours viewing, depending how long you want to spend in the various film shows. Free admission on Wednesdays so excellent value. Central location and... More

Really enjoyed the gallery and exhibition...may have something to do with the fact it was all art to do with football (soccer). Can easily spend a few hours in there. Cheap enough. Definitely recommend.

One of the most representative places in the city. Nice exhibitions and reasonable prices. They offer food in the restaurant, as well.
