Museo de Geología de la UNAM
The fossilised skeleton of a pre-historic elephant, constructed from pieces found in twelve different parts of the country is the centerpiece of the collection housed by this museum. Minerals, rocks and the remains of meteorites, form the rest of the collection. The exhibits were gathered by the Mexican Geographical Society during the 18th and 19th centuries, and are currently under the custody of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico. Located in an old 19th century town-house, there are also paintings by the renowned Mexican landscape artist Jose María Velasco, a palaeontology room, and an interactive exhibit titled Sistema Tierra (earth system). There is a cafeteria and guided tours are available if booked in advance.
The museum is in itself a museum... With a 100 years old buiding, the oldest part of the museum is it,s fosil coleccion , with itps wood cabinets, and hadnwritten notes.
Fosil speciments form Mexico an d many parts of the owrld.
Also it has a huged colection of rocks, metoerite, mateirals etc.
It also has a more modern secion, (a bit overused) explaining concepts of geology.
I recomend it.
