These are the top 3 modern buildings you don’t want to miss when you’re next in Juárez, Mexico! Juárez’s modern architecture has grown over the years and the city holds some true gems that you don’t want to miss when visiting this historic city! Here are my top 3 modern buildings to check out in Juárez!
Art Museum Ciudad Juárez
This museum’s outside is a piece of beauty in and of itself, so you don’t even need to enter it to be amazed. It was created by renowned architect Pedro Ramrez Vázquez, and you’ll be amazed by its spherical shape and transparent dome. The museum opened on February 27, 2000 and has an area of 5,800 square meters with four floors. Inside the Museum Ciudad Juárez there are over 676 pieces that make up the collection. It’s open Monday-Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sundays from 11am-6pm; admission is $1 USD for adults.
The inside and outside of this interactive museum, which is devoted to everything from art and culture to science and technology, are both stunning. Its red and white structure with a commanding glass dome is one of Juárez’s most distinctive features and is difficult to miss. The Rodadora hosts exhibitions on topics as diverse as video games and pop music, but what stands out most about it is its immersive multimedia space.
It’s impossible not to get swept up in the energy that pulses through the walls at La Rodadora.
Its vibrant displays will stimulate your senses for hours!
Monument to the Mexican People
One of the greatest spectacular landmarks in this city—one without which it wouldn’t be the same—is the Monument to the Mexican People. This monument, which is in the shape of a huge X symbol and is close to the Mexican border with the United States, does a fantastic job of fusing the cultures of the Aztec and the Spanish. The building’s design pays tribute to both past civilizations. It was designed by Pedro Ramirez Vázquez and completed in 1975.
