Information

The enclosure that houses the Bird of Mexico Museum was built in the 19th century, assigned to the Jesuits to manage the Antiguo Colegio de San Juan.

During the years of the Revolution the property suffered serious devastation and later became federal property in 1931. Since the 50s it has served at different times as the State Congress headquarters of the Federal Highway Police, Ministry of Agriculture and other federal agencies, until the deterioration wiped out various rooms of the building.

In 1992 the state government decided to rebuild and adapt the building to house the Bird Museum of Mexico, and given to the city, the state, and Mexico by Aldegundo lion Garza, who formed it after 42 years of strenuous efforts as an ornithologist.

Here you can enjoy a collection of more than 2,350 Mexican bird specimens (one third of which are stuffed), which represents 75% of the countryâ¿¿s bird fauna.

In the museum you learn about the history, customs and characteristics of these different animal species.

The Bird Museum of Mexico has showrooms, an educational area, auditorium, garden, lobby, upper lobby, and parking.

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sundays and holidays from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Adults: $ 10 pesos. Children, students with ID, and seniors with INDEM ID: $ 5 pesos.
