“World class museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Contemporary Art Museum ( MARCO) is an excellent option if you are visiting Monterrey. You may want to get there by registered taxi cabs or driven by locals, friends or family. The building itself as well as the exhibitions are world class. Tip: wednesdays are free.

“excellent exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

well-presented exhibitions of modern art, sculpture and video presentations in a spacious and stylish building with explanations in Spanish and English. Current exhibitions vary but the ones we saw were excellent and worth 2 to 3 hours viewing, depending how long you want to spend in the various film shows. Free admission on Wednesdays so excellent value. Central location and easy to get to. If you only have time for one museum in Monterrey, go for this one!

“Great gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed the gallery and exhibition...may have something to do with the fact it was all art to do with football (soccer). Can easily spend a few hours in there. Cheap enough. Definitely recommend.
