Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Contemporary Art Museum of the Yucatán) - Museum Merida - Mexico

Opened in 1994, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MACAY) stands proudly next door to the cathedral on the Main Square, occupying the former Peninsular Athenaeum, which began life as the archbishop’s palace. Temporary exhibits by national and international artists fill the salons and a cavernous, covered patio. Among the permanent exhibits is one celebrating the life and work of Yucatecan mural painter Fernando García Ponte. Alongside MACAY, the Pasaje de la Revolucion is an open-air gallery for contemporary, large-scale sculpture.
