I visited this museum just out of curiosity when I learned about the permanent exhibit of some of Salvador Dali paintings. Very interesting and good Dali's work from the period he lived in Monterrey.

Nice exhibit. Was not aware of his connection to Monterey. Not really my cup of tea but enjoyed the various themes and styles

Located in the Custom House Plaza, this museum had a Salvador Dali exhibit that was just fantastic. Worth a visit.
