  • Not is because he is called Museum of the desert if you have until stuffed polar bears, the approximate travel time is 2 hrs and the adult X cost is 90 pesos, parking costs 30 and if you includes your photos with Assembly of dinosaurs with cost of 100 more, here you will find different pavilions with live and dead animals, as well as objects from different periods

  • It is a privilege to have a museum that is technology, which count with a lot of parts of our history but also with live animals in our city and in danger of disappearing if the entire route is much learning.

  • It was huge! Also very interesting. If you speak english find the tall skinny guy named Edgar and he will give you a great tour with a ton of insider information. It really made all the difference.
  • Nice family place. It's hot so take your water everywhere.
  • The best museum in Mexico, period.
  • Great place, excellent exhibition.
  • It was okay to go through this, but there is no English information here. There are some animals and reptiles. It's an okay time if there isn't anything to do.
