Things to do

Admire Tijuana’s Cultural Center


If there is one place that sums up all that is interesting about the city by telling itself its own story, and where there are plenty of art-filled days, it’s the Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT). It is an organization which belongs to the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (National Board for Culture and Arts), which since 1982 has allowed for the artistic expressions that develop on the border. Pedro Ramírez Vázquez and Manuel Rosen Morrison are the architects who brought this project to life. Walking through its installations is like walking through a tiny country, with an aquarium and botanic gardens, a conventional cinema and an IMAX theater known as La Bola, as well as a performance space where around a thousand people can sit and laugh and cry, over and over again. The art gallery El Cubo is an interesting space with three floors that house temporary exhibitions, and the Museo de las Californias revisits Tijuana and the peninsula’s past.
