Local Galleries: Creative Spaces in Merida to Get Inspired

Mérida offers a wide variety of options to inspire and enjoy talented artists who share a particular way of seeing society and the world in multiple galleries around the city.

From bizarre to contemporary and modern art, you will find different forms of expression in these artistic spaces. Merida is coming up in the art world and it’s exciting to look at all the work the artists have to offer.

A historical fact! Did you know that in Mexico during the 1930s, the first art gallery was opened and administered by the government?

Here we love art, and galleries are spaces of inspiration that we enjoy the most. We recommend the following, where you can let your imagination run wild and get great inspiration.

Galería Secreta

A hidden space at the historic center of Mérida, with independent rooms and hybrid qualities between a museum, a cultural center, and an industrial space for art.

The first contact to schedule an appointment is by phone or on the Instagram account. They will guide you with clues that will reveal the mysterious secret location of the gallery.
