I love this small museum

The history behind the making of glass bottles and other types of custom glass unfolds throughout this museum. It really is one of a kind.

This is a very small museum with a nice glass collection but limited, good enough for Monterrey.

It is very well hidden inside the manufacturing plant of Vitro. Even when you are in there you can get turned around since this is a working plant. the museum is 3 floors. The best art is in the 3rd floor which is kind of an attic. There are some very beautiful pieces if you are willing to go up... More

I was curious since it was so highly rated in Monterrey by others. It was a little out of the way; I had to take a taxi to get there.
