Museo de las Aves, Saltillo

The Museo de las Aves in Saltillo. Worth a visit!

The Museo de las Aves in Saltillo. Worth a visit!

I find always it a good idea to establish museums with a specific subject, where you find details to one single subject – of course with the option to side steps. One of the museums that impressively presents a subject on ornithology is the Museo de las Aves in the City of Saltillo, which  is dedicated to the birds of Mexico. The visitor is welcomed by a gigantic metal eagle. The exhibition mostlis consits of dioramas with nicely made taxidermy in there. The exhibition tell you about behaviour, nesting, mating, the funtion of the beak, and the evolution birds. Dioramas designed according to the habitats round a a well done and excellent display where you can spend a nice forenoon. Photography is not allowed. After walking through the one way exhibit the door opens into a beatiful garden with a few life raptors, other birds and some pond turtles are shown. There is a lecture theatre with windows that show bird motives. The museum show sells many fancy things for kids, less for adults. The best you can het there is the field guide to the birds of Coahuila for 350 Pesos. Well done!
