  • Everything was displayed very professionally but the museum had a very modernistic bent, similar to the Tate Museum in London.

  • Great museum, you can see few exhibition. It wasn't too busy (but we came in first hour), very safe with all COVID-19 measures. Free entrance! Great roof terrace with amazing views.
  • Puebla has no shortage of beautiful rooftops and lovely museums, this has to be one of its best. Absolutely top-notch exhibits, can’t believe it’s in such a small town and was FREE :0 ❤️
