Museo de Arte Contemporáneo information
Don't miss the terrific Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, its entrance marked by gigantic black dove sculpture by Juan Soriano. Inside, its idiosyncratic spaces are filled with water and light and major exhibitions (all temporary, there's no permanent collection) of work by contemporary Mexican and Latin American artists. Call in advance to get a tour in English. Marco also has a fine book store and restaurant.
