  • Stonebriar mall is an excellent place to shop. There is a variety of stores for everyone's taste. My family came to visit and enjoyed shopping everytime that I would take them.  more »
  • The museum has a restaurant that you may want to try. Different ambiance than the typical restaurant in the area. Quiet and well appointed, great service, good for dinning or for a sit down coffee.  more »

  • It's really interesting and the exhibition's change in some of the rooms. Free in on Sundays, $1.50 every other day. Worth a visit.
  • I definitely recommend coming to MARTE. If you can it is better to request a guide so that he can explain more about the paintings. The bathroom was very clean, everything there was neat and clean, to be honest. The only thing that they can improve is that the description of the paintings should be both in spanish and English. I saw many foreigners struggling with spanish.
