The Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (University Museum of Contemporary Art - MUAC) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico is the first public museum in Mexico created expressly (in terms of its architecture, management, museology and interpretation) for contemporary art. It is located in the Centro Cultural Universitario inside the UNAM's University City. It opened its doors to the public on November 27, 2008 and it is the first museum conceived in its entirety, from the management of the institution to its architectural design. It houses and exhibits the UNAM's contemporary art collection, which contains art works created from 1952 on and that are essential to and representative of the development of contemporary art in Mexico.
