When it opened, this museum started showing new, excellent Mexican artist. A true trend-setter. Now it's lost most of its leadership and settles for proven artists. Still very interesting. The building itself is worth a visit

The building itself was really beautiful and we'll kept. The photography exhibit there was absolutely stunning. I really enjoyed it. A great way to spend a few hours in the center of the city. Air conditioning was welcomed in the midday heat.

For art lovers, young and not so young, this is an amazing place where you will experience an art collection second to none in Northern Mexico

Located next to Monterrey's Cathedral, the Macro is a must see while visiting. I really enjoyed the current Tamayo exhibit, and had never seen so many of his paintings in one place. Free on Wednesdays.

It´s sad to see such a beatiful architectural building with very boring and lame exhibition in the all year round, the only very interesting we saw was the temporary exhibition of Pixar and the building

Featuring three traveling exhibit halls, this museum brings world-class traveling exhibits to Monterrey. Exhibits are amazing and wide-ranging. The constantly rotating exhibits are always excellent. We have seen exhibits featuring every media and are well presented often in Spanish and English.

It's a good place to spend couple of hours . The architecture built very nice. The statues are sculpted with best design.

A MUST-DO for those in Monterrey. On Wednesdays the museum is free (and busier), but definitely still enjoyable. Two of the three exhibits we saw (all not permanent) were great! A South Korean artist using black light and wire installations was interactive and exciting. The...More
