The Arocena Museum (Arocena Laguna Cultural Center, Non-profit Association) is a wide and modern museum with interesting halls of contemporary art, European Art, New Spain and regional history Art established in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico. It is located on a 5 thousand sq. meters land in what used to be the old Casino de la Laguna, and the building was restored and equipped with state of the art technology. The collection has more than 300 pieces of Viceroyal, European and Mexican art that were acquired by the Arocena Family over the last hundred years. Due to its value and variety, this collection can be considered one of the most important in the country. In 2010, the “Casa Historica Arocena” opened as a cultural annex dedicated to interpret what now is known as “Golden Age” at the Comarca Lagunera. In March 2012, it is remodeled once again to offer new exhibit halls and other world class cultural services at the Old Chinese Bank (Russek Building). The three projects form the Arocena Museum and altogether have more than 8 thousand square meters of exhibition area making it a cultural center and museum of great impact for the visitors.
