  • A incredible museum with a interesting architecture. 30 pesos a regular ticket, 15 for students and Wednesday is free. For the movies is another ticket, 40 general and 20 students with a valid ID. Always a interesting subject and a relevant discution. The coffee shop is delicious and with a good price (coffee for 25, salads between 65 to 80, chocolate croissant 25) . You have one counter inside and another outside (specially pleasant for summer days). With access to wheel chair. If in Mexico, go there!
  • Fantastic minimalist space. Used to be an old train station. Great exhibits
