Logo_Geología_curvasThe Geology Museum is part of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico). Its mission is to preserve the geological collections at the museum as well as the main geological collections in the country. It is also devoted to promoting knowledge about the earth sciences. The museum is located across from the Santa María la Ribera Alameda; it has been an icon of the barrio, partly because it is housed in an impressive, late-nineteenth-century building.
