Universum Science Museum reopens its doors in Mexico City


On July 15, the Universum Science Museum reopened its doors at 30% of its capacity after 15 months closed due to the pandemic.

MEXICO CITY.- The Universum Science Museum has many surprises as of its reopening on July 15, among them the real-size replica of the skeleton of the largest flying reptile in prehistory, which lived in what is now Mexico, the Quetzalcoatlus. 

After 15 months closed due to the covid-19 pandemic, this emblematic venue located within Ciudad Universitaria, will reopen its doors at 30 percent capacity, with a maximum of 600 people, complying with all health measures to take care of the health of the visitors and collaborators. 

In the exhibition ‘Treasures: Fossils and Minerals of Mexico’, it will be possible to observe the great monsters of the past that inhabited what is now national territory. 

A total of 20 pieces made on the real fossils. 

We are going to open little by little, we are going to open on reduced hours and not every day, so now we will be working from Thursday to Sunday from 10 in the morning to four in the afternoon; the box office will actually close at three in the afternoon ”, indicated María Emilia Beyer, director of Universum. 

In addition, you will be able to appreciate an exhibition of robots and get to know a new room called ‘Decide’

Visitors will also be able to visit the Ocean room, known to very few because it was released shortly before the temporary closure, and the Habitat room, with all about the world in which we live.

On Thursdays the entry will be 2×1 in support of families due to the pandemic. General access to the Universum museum costs 90 pesos, plus 30 pesos optional to enter the “Treasures: Fossils and Minerals of Mexico”.
