Art with a view!

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.

Plus, the gift shop has high quality items. Definitely go up to the rooftop to get a good glimpse of the town and all the chapels from on high. To visit the galleries takes about 30 minutes and when we were there, featured the work of Orozco and Sequieros and other mexican artists.

This museum is housed in an original colonial home. Most impressive and fascinating to us was the extensive collection of pre-Hispanic artifacts. But also impressive is the colonial section housed on the second floor. The kitchen and certain living rooms are preserved much as they were in colonial times, and display many pieces from the 16th and 17th centuries. We... More

A lot to see here. Don't miss the colonial kitchen. Thank you to Juan for helping translate for us! Views from the rooftop cafe are great.

The building is an interesting mix of old and new put nicely together with an amazing rooftop terrace (has a lovely garden and 360 degree view of the city). We were sold student tickets I think accidentally but we didn't mind or question it. The layout of rooms were a little confusing and we were constantly being told which direction... More

The Museo Amparo has some great art—but what I loved most was its rooftop cafe. Grab a coffee from the bar inside, then wander around the outside area. It's filled with a huge variety of flowering and aromatic plants in different-shaped containers, tables and chairs, telescopes. The best part is feeling as though you could reach out and touch the...

What an interesting museum. There were antiquities from the region and contemporary art. It was a real surprise. It is a small manageable museum. They have a fantastic roof top garden cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. The cafe is glass on all sides so you get a great view if the weather requires you sit inside. The museum shop... More
