Laboratorio de Arte Alameda - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

Cutting-edge art fills this converted church (the 17th-century Convento de San Diego) across the street from Alameda Central and around the corner from the Museo Mural Diego Rivera. Lofty in its goals and generous with its space, the museum houses artwork and films across two floors. Opened in 2000 and administered by the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, the museum focuses on young artists and experimental artwork. Expect to see artwork that is electronic, virtual, interactive or some combination thereof. Actually, unless you watch every bit of every film, you're not likely to be here more than a half hour. Keep a keen eye out for the entrance because the former church sits a bit back from the street.

Dr. Mora 7, Col. Centro Histórico
Mexico City, Mexico
