Planetario Alfa is nice. They are different exhibitions, you can see a few animals. Though it was crowded when we went and there was nothing extraordinary. Why not for one day but it's not the first place I would recommend to go there.

Hello. Thank you for your visit. Planetario Alfa´s Aviary was the first Aviary of Monterrey built in 1986. The Aviary, undoubtedly, is one of the favorites spots for visitors. We hope to see you back soon!

Thank you very much. Planetario Alfa is one of the most memorable spots in the city, specially for children, due to the interactive exhibitions, great movies and beautiful gardens.

I don't know why it's listed twice but as I stated in the other listing, not a place to be missed when down in Monterrey. Look up their facebook page to see when they have free entry and their event calendar. I went back in...More
