We went to the modern art section of the cultural center and found it very interesting. Be sure and go to the first floor gallery where the artist depicts a modern version of the events leading up to and the death of Christ. In this artist version, Christ is pretty chubby! But it is good art work.

My expectations were [ridiculously] set too high. I do like the building, walking into a ball---cool. I was a regular in the Monterey Aquarium, different art galleries, and the Smithsonian museums. I hoped to see an exhibition of the Mexican Revolution, but didn't see one. I looked for examples of the fish found around the Baja Peninsula. It does have... More

This Museum is totally Excellent. I've seen 2 sets of shows here and they could stand up against any museum in New York City. They show traditional, controversial and totally up to date selections of paintings, photography and sculpture. There is also a theatre with a wonderful stage for ballet / music, a children's section and an Imack movie theatre... More

I've been several times at CECUT every time a great experience. It's a very interesting place, not just for the building itself but for the ever changing art galleries, the projections at the IMAX, teather plays, and expos. If you are in Tijuana take some time to visit this museum.

Well I had an hour to kill waiting for my dentist who was across the street from this big ball Aquarium. This was an enjoyable hour spent there. I think the price was @ 4 bucks or less. It housed some really beautiful fish and other odd creatures from the sea. Some of exhibits lack the care needed for this... More

I always enjoy art and history. The paid exhibits were worth the price. The architecture alone was interesting. My favorite piece was by hector banda. It was at the entrance.

The free gallery was interesting and I loved the gardens. Wish we had time for an IMAX and the exhibit upstairs detailing the history of the area.
