Even at COVID-19 times, you can still enjoy art. Even I'm not a big fan of contemporary art, I really appreciate to have open places for culture at very reasonable prices.

MARCO is contemporary art museum located in downtown Monterrey. You can go to there for a fun, educating visit.
They currently have the Rafael Lozano Hemmer exhibition, and it was soo interesting and fun! The exhibition uses tons of technological devices, and interactive rooms. I would recommend you to take a camera (w/o flash, though), because taking pics/video is a must in that exhibit. I had a lot of fun and could have spent hours walking around.
I takes you about two to three hours to finish (properly) looking around the museum.

The main exhibit has each art piece explained in both English and Spanish.

The entry is free on Wednesdays!!!

Really interesting hoping to have all rooms available soon. There was a recicling subject on one room which has a big cord in the middle of a hall not placed safe so one person could fall down

marco Museum is very well located in Monterrey's downtown. Nearby some hotels and shopping areas.
I went with very low expectations as they only had one exhibition but this one was amazing!!!! I do not know if marco museum always have this quality of artist, but if you get to go soon, you can not miss Rafael Lozano-Hemmer exhibition. It was one of the best parts of my trip to Monterrey.
About the museum... I was bit dissapointed there was nothing else to see,

I'm not a big fan of most museums, but the exhibits here were particularly interesting. The museum is small, but well organized and has a very structured way to see the exhibits. The two that were there when we went were almost mind blowing, particularly the second one which was a mix of art and technology. I would assume that the exhibits are usually of the same quality and it's a quick 2 hour visit.

Very small.

Avoid if you don’t speak or read/write English well or have a local friend take you.

Guards are very rude and constantly barking directions that American tourist will not understand. They want you see thing in certain other because of the “rules” so you can’t back track.

They also block until you ask “properly” to let you continue.

As the title says, this is my favorite place in Monterrey and I would highly recommend it. They change their exhibits a lot so it is worth going every few months.
