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. Our Saltillo travel route planning tool makes visiting Museo del Desierto and other Saltillo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

It's been a while since I visited this place, and I found this experience just as good as before. They have new Expeditions and have remodeled a bit. Great historical exhibits and the live animal exhibits are great as well! If your in Saltillo this museum is a must!
This was a great place to see Mexican & Desert history. A great value for a destination that has art, fossils, live animals, live plants, and recreations. I highly recommend you visit there is something to interest the whole family.
