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.

This is another place that is highly recommended to visit in Monterrey. Usually they have temporary showings that are very unique and cool, but the permanent collection is also very good. And the place by itself is worth visiting.

This Museum is housed in a breath-taking building by a renowned Mexican architect. Over the years it has gotten better and better, with spot-on curating and interesting exhibitions year-round. The last one I saw, an assortment of props, pictures, scripts, costumes, etc. by Stanley Kubrick was OUTSTANDING. Definitely a top favorite spot for culture.

The location is great for seeing a view of the mountains and seeing some of the older buildings, but the museum itself is cool. They really have some nice art. Ordinarily, contemporary art is not my thing, but I enjoyed it and would visit again.

This museum opened its doors in 1991 and with help of private benefactors brings contemporary art collections to this city. The architecture of the building is very mexican and modern.
