Went to see modern art at this beautifully situated and ultra modern building. the shows were current and well curated. The outdoor restaurant and rooftop space was stunning, both for its architecture and views.

We have visited the Amparo museum on a Monday, it's one of the rare attractions to be open on a Monday, and it's free access on that day. On the ground floor, very nice prehispanic collection, well documented. Wonderful view on the historic district from the terrasse upstairs. Very pleasant museum.

Beautifully presented art. Terrace where you can see the city. Free admission on Mondays. I want there on Monday, so don't know the usual entrance fee.

The museum has some great galleries, but the roof top terrace had to be my favorite! Was the perfect place to relax after walking through the museum!

We loved the museum! They restyled the inner rooms and the result was incredible! Good expositions that really opened our eyes, great terrace (don't miss the opportunity to drink a beer with that beautiful landscape) and in general, everything was great! The only opportunity... The security ladies, they should be more sensitive with the people.

The museum itself is really nice but in my opinion what is worth is the amazing terrace they have!! It is breathtaking and absolutely beautiful! Do not miss it! You can see all the churches and rooftops from above!!! My favorite terrace in the city! I love to get drinks here!

First rate art museum near the center of Puebla. Be sure to leave some time to linger and enjoy the views from the rooftop terrace (with bar). Admission is free on Mondays.

This is a great place to spend a day. You can visit the museum for about 3 hours and then you can go to their terrace and have a coffee as you take pictures of the Cathedral.

A great museum situated at a beautiful house with modern inside redesign. You have to visit if visiting Puebla.
