Discover the wonders of one of the richest and most biodiverse environments in Mexico at Museo del Desierto. Through the museum's four pavilions you'll learn about the origins of deserts and their mineral wealth. See fossils unearthed in the desert, including that of a T-Rex, and witness the rituals and customs of nomadic groups who once inhabited the sands. The museum also covers the evolution and biodiversity of the region, and displays over 350 species of cacti in the botanical garden. Interactive exhibits engage you and deepen your understanding of this landscape of extremes.
