I have very fond memories of visiting this beautiful city of Monterrey in Nuevo Leon state. When I look back, I am dazzled at how beautiful it was. I will talk to you about one of the museums that is in the downtown area, "The Metropolitan Museum" located opposite the Plaza Zaragoza, in the heart of the historic city center, formerly Palace Municipal. This museum has four temporary exhibitions, a central courtyard and an auditorium where they perform various cultural activities. In advance I apologize for the poor quality of the video, but I hope they will give you an idea of this beautiful museum.
This museum opened on December 6, 1991 in order to preserve and conserve the national heritage of glass. It is located in a building that was completed in 1909 to serve as the first headquarters of Monterrey. Housed inside are pre hispanic crystals, colonial glass, popular glass, a nineteenth-century pharmacy and the parlor windows.
