  • SO good!! An absolute must-visit if you are in Puebla. What was so neat was the mix of modern with pre-Columbian and in between. The rooftop cafe, with a view over the city is a delight too.

  • Hardly any texts in English! Beautiful museum with lots of prehispanic art. You could spend 2 hours here. A very interesting part on the language and hieroglyphics. Also has a part with contemporary art and an app that provides extra information and audio. Mostly in Spanish though
  • Wonderful art museum with excellent exhibitions. The building itself is modern and beautiful. But the best part may be the rooftop cafe. The food there is reasonably priced and very good, and the view is one of the best in Puebla.
