Art venues in Nuevo León

Nuevo Leon’s culture is very diverse: we’re proud of norteño music, the poetry of Alfonso Reyes, the traditional carne asada on weekends and our parks. Our art scene is one of the most active of the country.

Nuevo León has cultural spaces for every interest, such as MARCO Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Mexican History Museum, the old industrial facilities in Fundidora Park and the Alfa Planetarium.
