Mexico City is a city of museums. I’ve read the total exceeds 150, and I can believe it. Yesterday I went to one of the smaller, lesser known museums, the Geology Museum (map no. 38). Which is a shame, it being lesser known, because it’s a fabulous little place that costs just 15 pesos to get in, and is in an old building with an interior worth paying 15 pesos to see alone.
It’s in the heart of Santa Maria La Ribera and contains all sorts of geology related stuff, from Mexico and elsewhere around the world. Including a fair few chunks from good old Blighty. Rocks, meteorites, fossils and the such. It does help if you’re into rocks, I’ll admit. But as I say, for the price, it’s worth checking out if you’re in the hood. Click here for the photos.
