Enjoy Christmas in Monterrey visiting 3 Museos

November 23, 2017

If something marks the beginning of the holiday season in the cultural zone of 3 Museos in Monterrey, is its beautiful Christmas tree that makes everybody smile.

If you’re wondering what to do in Christmas and would like an option different than the traditional visits to shopping malls and dinners at restaurants, we have an excellent proposal in Monterrey: visit 3 Museos, the cultural zone where you can get into national, regional and local history. Located in the city center, a few minutes away from Parque Fundidora, here you can find the Museum of Mexican History, the Museum of the Northeast and the Government Palace Museum. In a single trip you could visit all of them and enjoy their permanent exhibitions and events to learn more about the fascinating history of the country, region and the city of Monterrey. They also host interesting temporary exhibitions that showcase the best of history and art in other parts of the world.

But, why visit 3 Museos during this Christmas season? In addition to its cultural importance, this season the esplanade of the Museum of Mexican History becomes the home of an imposing Christmas tree of 22 meters high. It was designed and created by local artist Sergio Rodríguez, who has been doing it for more than a decade to officially start the Christmas season in 3 Museos and the rest of the city. It is made with basins and recycled plastic baskets in yellow, orange and red, which symbolize vitality, joy, activity and emotional proximity. These same objects were used in the tree last year, but now they are placed in a different way, creating a new design.

It doesn’t matter if this holiday season you visit the city for business or pleasure, with your family or alone, to take a walk through 3 Museos, enter their exhibitions and enjoy the Christmas ambiance that the traditional tree gives, will make you have an extraordinary and different evening in Monterrey. The Christmas tree will be on display until January 7, 2018.
