  • Cool little spot for art. There's a pretty dark section that I didn't like but maybe I just didn't get the big picture behind that specific art. Over all a good place to visit. One of the staff members got a little snappy on us because weren't wearing our backpacks in front of us.....but everyone else was friendly.
  • It's a beautiful museum that discusses and shows the beauty and story of Mexican culture. Came here on a field trip and had a tour guide walk us though the art. It's very colorful, the exhibits are eye catching, and you'll leave with a little bit more knowledge. Just know that you're not allowed food or drink inside, for obvious reasons.
