Go on a Sunday or Tuesday when there is a free entrance. The exhibits are nice and the new Castas display is very good.

Spend a day in this stunning, modern museum with a modest-sized, yet historically and artistically impressive collection and you will not be disappointed. The building itself is worth the visit. It is gleaming white, with sharp soaring angles that will almost stop you in your tracks, and a wonderful location within view of the national palace and literally just steps... More

It is a must for people interested in history and culture. You can learn the particular history from monterrey and Noroeste Mexicano. The fee is cheap and includes parking.

this was a nice little museum that you are able to go through in about an hour. Since we do not speak Spanish, it was helpful that we knew some history of Texas and Mexico before going.
