The museum is within the factory, ask the security guard at entry for exact location. The museum is housed in a historic building. Very distinctive architecture for the region. The museum is three stories and has the glass pieces arranged in somewhat chronological order. Photography is not allowed but the free entry and tour make up for this inconvenience. When... More

The history behind the making of glass bottles and other types of custom glass unfolds throughout this museum. It really is one of a kind.

This is a very small museum with a nice glass collection but limited, good enough for Monterrey. However the museum is the core of a still running glass factory, one of the biggest in the world. so... if you have time to visit it, it´s a whole experience. I visit this museum several times while I was living in Monterrey... More

If you are traveling with young, ages 7-70 you can take a course making a portrait frame or a candle holder, depends on the age. It is a LOT of fun, and a great idea for a family to get together and make something that will definitely look great and be completely original. You do have to call and make... More

It is very well hidden inside the manufacturing plant of Vitro. Even when you are in there you can get turned around since this is a working plant. the museum is 3 floors. The best art is in the 3rd floor which is kind of an attic. There are some very beautiful pieces if you are willing to go up... More

I was curious since it was so highly rated in Monterrey by others. It was a little out of the way; I had to take a taxi to get there. The museum is way in the back of a working industrial glass plant. You walk past an outer security gate, and then after a walk, there's another entrance where you... More
